Olympus Digital Camera Brand to Disappear in 2014?

Hi folks,

I used to post quite a bit on this forum a few years ago. Still using the same camera, because it works for me...

I was reading up on branding and trademarks and ran across an article in the Huffington Post online that predicted the demise of various name-brand products, either through the loss of trademark or simply by dwindling sales. This paragraph grabbed me:

"Consumer electronics is another category with disappearing brands. The Barnes & Noble Nook is on the list. It competes with better-selling products made by larger companies — Apple and Amazon.com — and is also in the e-reader business, a shrinking industry. The Olympus digital camera also will disappear from store shelves by the end of 2014. Camera sales, especially point-and-shoot models, have been eroded by smartphones, which have increasingly high-quality cameras."

Anyone else run across any similar predictions? Just curious.

Hello to anyone who might still be around from the Old Days of OTF (this was formerly known as the Olympus Talk Forum)...
