A pile of picture machines. Aluminum, brass and glass with maybe an old mercury battery or two. Every one probably still works. No firmware upgrades needed. Just point and shoot.

I’m finding my digitals have a far shorter lifespan. After about 15 years they pass on, go dark, give up the ghost, let you down. Chances are we’ll go more bionic in the years to come. Become semi-digital beings, part carbon-based, part silicon-based needing regular software and hardware upgrades.

Such a marketing opportunity.
