They got a $909 mill payout from Kodak which propelled them into... well, not into the stratosphere but bankruptcy in 2001. You can't really blame them for thinking that the biggest profit centre was the Legal Department and cutting back on the costly innovation!
It's nice to see that they still around - in name - to produce, errm, a gadget.
