Kodak rolls again
Kodak is back in the bus business.
Earlier this year, the D.C. city council axed a program that allowed companies to transform buses into mobile billboards. At the time, two Kodak disposable camera look-alikes toured the Mall area in downtown D.C.
Though council members criticized the made-over buses as eyesores, an estimated $100,000 in extra advertising revenue won out over good taste.
“Maybe when we see these things going down the street, it will be a sign of how desperate we are,” one council member whined.
Kodak should roll those buses to Rochester, a city not likely to chastize the imaging King of the Road–bad taste notwithstanding.

A little byte of humor
The following joke had folks yucking it up at this week’s meeting of the Software Executives Group:
God called Boris Yeltsin, Bill Clinton and Bill Gates to heaven. “The world will end in 30 days,” God said. “Go back and tell your people.”
Yeltsin returned to Russia. “I have bad news and terrible news,” he said. “The bad news is that we’ve been wrong all along–there is a God. The terrible news is the world will end in 30 days.”
Clinton delivered God’s word to the Americans. “I have good news and bad news. The good news is we’ve been right all along–there is a God. The bad news is the world will end in 30 days.”
And finally, Gates gathered his minions at Microsoft. “I have great news and fabulous news,” he said. “The great news is that God knows I’m an important person. The fabulous news is the world will end in 30 days and we don’t have to ship Windows 95.”
