Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------

Amusing slasdot post, regarding the new Kodak Digicam resolution going up
to 13.8MegaPixel:

   I can just picture in Koln, Germany right now...

   Kodak: The numbers all go to thirteen. Look, right across the board,
   thirteen, thirteen, thirteen and -
   Canon: Oh, I see. And most cams go up to eleven?
   Kodak: Exactly.
   Canon: Does that mean it's sharper? Is it any sharper?
   Kodak: Well, it's two sharper, isn't it? It's not eleven. You see, most
   blokes, you know, will be shooting at eleven. You're on eleven here,
   all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on eleven on
   your camera. Where can you go from there? Where?
   Canon: I don't know.
   Kodak: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over
   the cliff, you know what we do?
   Canon: Put it up to thirteen.
   Kodak: Thirteen. Exactly. Two sharper.
   Canon: Why don't you just make eleven sharper and make eleven be the
   top number and make that a little sharper?
   Kodak: [Pause] These go to thirteen.
