The End of an Era

Polaroid It is truly the end of an era.

Massachusetts-based Polaroid Corp., creator of instant film photography, announced last week that it is shutting down its two local facilities and exiting the film business. The square, white-framed photos from our childhood that tested our patience as they developed just can't compete in today's digital world.

While the company itself will continue on - with a new focus on flat-panel TVs and digital photography gear - it's sad to think that the one truly unique product which made them famous has become extinct.

Nostalgic fans can visit Polanoid.net, the "biggest Polaroid-picture-collection of the planet to celebrate the magic of instant photography."
