Discontinue Panic

Everytime there is an item that shows up discontinued or closeout, a new thread is spawned!

Are you proposing that this become a general purpose thread for all reports of discontinued products? A person could post and the usual people can give then give the usual answers.

Current model Pentax Forum t-shirts are long overdue for an upgrade and with a design contest for replacement models running, I am concerned that I should buy a Pentax Forum t-shirt before the current models are pulled from the market. Those innovative designs are clear classics, but still I have doubts. Should I buy now or wait to see if the long-requested elastic waist feature will be offered?

This must mean that Pentax are producing the all time best camera, the ISO less camera, you heard it here first on Pentax Forums. That would fit with my dream camera, video less, gps less, wifi less, screen less, meter less

Nothing to panic about. I am not panicking, just saving up for the DA* 300.

According to the radio reports, the Martians have landed and are advancing across the landscape, destroying everything in their path.

I blame Orson Welles.

if there are less rules (technology) would it be easier to simply be?
less technology and more photography

Programmers!

Programmers and their mangers suck. They think that it is "cool" to put up an urgent banner ad that a "k1" tablet device has been discontinued in the middle of someone looking to buy an expensive K-1 DSLR. Now he won't buy because he thinks the camera is discontinued (a lost sale). There must be a way to get through to these management morons that their f***ing "cool" programming widgets are such a pain that it is losing them sales!!!
