A world without Polaroids is a pretty big deal.
That's one more product that technology has killed off completely: On the eve of the product's 60th anniversary, Polaroid is announcing that its namesake instant film is being discontinued. None of Polaroid's two dozen auto-developing products will be produced after 2008.
Depending on the type of film, Polaroid says you can expect to find it on store shelves until the first quarter of 2009, but most of its films will be gone well before then. And don't get too excited about 'stocking up' on Polaroid film, either: It will all expire before the end of 2009, after which it will begin to degrade considerably.
