The list is quite long. Corporations are getting to be like people: they all
have their fifteen minutes of fame.

Showing your lack of experience and knowledge. I specifically switched to
digital just to avoid the burden, expense, and frustration of using film in
situations like the above. Backpacking one lightweight camera, an extra set
of AA batteries, a compact folding solar-panel (weighing only ounces), and
extra SD cards is no comparison to the amount you'd have to haul for film,
not to mention the storage requirements for film in harsh environments
during lengthy treks.

You're a role-playing pretend-photographer fool and troll. There's no sense
in addressing any of your comments further, by anyone.

The most successful companies are always built around people, and often around
a single person. When that single person leaves, the companies often collapse,
or at least they settle into a kind of long-term mediocrity until the
replacement management finally screws up enough to bury them.

Bill left Microsoft long ago, and we see the results. Eventually Steve will be
gone, too, and Apple will wither thereafter just as Microsoft is withering

With all due respect George, you're the one responding to, rather than
kill-filing, both of our favorite trolls.

You'll continue to address my comments, just the same. I know the type.
