    OT: Old G-Shock And Awe article

    Interesting read from Dec 2003 CNN Money. I was particularly fascinated to see that Casio had the first (and for a time, only) digicam on the market back in 1995, the (Casio QV-10).

    "Still, Nakayama acknowledges the downside to Casio's approach. "We sure do fail a lot," he says, almost with an air of pride. Often that means bringing products to market before their time [...] in typical Casio fashion, Nakayama performed no consumer research before deciding to focus his marketing message on the then-geeky concept that you could transfer photos to your PC. Consumers found picture quality lacking, and Casio fell behind in the megapixel race that ensued. Chalk up another failure."
