Bali_Mirage: Wikipedia's entry for Perez explains why Kodak and the US are screwed:
"He was criticized for being one of the worst CEO's in the nation, citing the decline of Eastman Kodak during his stint as CEO.
In February 2011, Mr. Perez was appointed to President Obama's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness."
Oh, here we go, a Fox "news" watcher. Can't even write a comment in a photo forum without some President bashing and reciting some right wing talking points. How boring.
I guess the Lytro camera, as novel as it might be, is a solution looking for a problem. Just because you can make something new doesn't mean people have a need for it. I think they needed to consult with a photographer.lol
