end of an era
So, someday our kids are gonna be really confused if we play Outkast hits and they hear "shake it like a polaroid picture." What a bummer...
Polaroid Abandons Instant Photography
By Patrick J. Lyons
It was a wonder in its time: A camera that spat out photos that developed themselves in a few minutes as you watched. You got to see them where and when you took them, not a week later when the prints came back from the drugstore.
But in a day when nearly every cellphone has a digital camera in it, “instant” photography long ago stopped being instant enough for most people. So today, the inevitable end of an era came: Polaroid is getting out of the Polaroid business.
as Jen said:
What is the point of life anyway? When corn is taking over and polaroid is getting out. I guess at least Mitt Romney won’t be president.
