Polaroid Says No More Polaroid


Posted February 11, 2008 - By Mike D'Alonzo

It's a rare phenomenon when something is so well known that the brand name is what most people use to identify it. Kleenex...Coke...Q-Tip...and Polaroid. Well, the Polaroid company has decided to abandon the cameras that made them famous, the ones with the instant film inside, and focus their business on a new model entirely...printers, digital technology, etc.

It makes perfect sense in the age of the digital camera, but it's still going to be kind of sad to see the old Land Camera go. After all, it's a lot of fun to take those pictures and watch them develop right in front of your eyes. It was a good run...and Polaroid will now come to mean something else entirely.
