Comment The article is weak (Score 5, Insightful) 309

It first tried to rebuke the claims of Kodak being not able to innovate, etc, and then discussed "how people today use photos" in the examples of Flickr, Facebook, and such. It concluded with the weak argument of essentially one sentence, that "[It] is hard to see a role for Kodak in all of this." The problem with this reasoning is that exactly the same thing can be said about many of Kodak's competitors. I'm not aware whether Nikon or Canon is doing significantly better in this regard, which is to ease the "sharing and distribution" of photos through the Internet and social networking.

Apart from others, one way to harden the GP's backup is to sign a hash of it using his[1] own GPG key. Not that it counters all attacks but it makes the recovery process safer. If a malware somehow injects itself into the backup image after the image has been generated, the hash changes, but the signed hash cannot be easily spoofed.

[1] Since he's "Livius" not "Livia" I'd think he is a "he" not a "she" :-)

This is far from purely marketing. The quality of the search results is what make Google alive and a winner in the first place. Google has little other choice but doing so, even if it means a short-term dip for Chrome in their own search results.

And a little good PR after it doesn't hurt, anyway. I think Google deserves it.
