As Parallax wrote earlier, someone tried to dual-register under the UN "PentaxIsDoomed."
alas, we a re limited to one UN per Member.

I'd buy the domain and use it for a photography blog of K3 and K-01 images, but no one would get he joke.

Exactly. I wouldn't have the time to put anything meaningful there, and, as you say, the joke would be lost on most.

So, who's up for doomsdaycheese.com?

Pentax is Doomed

Apple was doomed many times. And came close to doom-ness. Good products, even at premium prices, marketed to a loyal customer base allowed Apple to survive. Then they created the iPhone. Followed by the iPad. New Customers! Only the iPhone was new hardware territory for Apple, by the way. I have used Apple stuff since the old Performa 3800 desktop. Anyways, doom is followed by zoom with innovative companies. Perhaps Pentax-R has begun the zoom with the K3 and those other cameras whose names I don't care about.

someone please explain the "Fox" reference... i'm not buying a K3 till I understand, or atleast until the world once again has all the velveeta its desires.
It's an internet meme, based on a funny song/video by Norwegian duo Ylvis. It started with them talking about how various animals have sounds associated with them (meow, woof, moo), but not the fox. And so they wrote a song, suggesting various nonsensical sounds.

Interestingly, it's spawned videos by animal experts showing sounds foxes DO make, some of which are not unlike sounds in the song.

So far as I know, Ylvis does not own a K-3, nor was one used to make their video.

Just as with @dansamy, they won't get one until they figure out what the fox says. Quite obvious, one should think.

How about the Happydale Sanitariums? Or Forum Funnyfarmers? The second one has the double advantage of having the initials of F.F.

Not to harsh your vibe - but who is Ricoh's Steve Jobs?

P.S. - 7 years ago today he debuted the iPhone.

Though we're mixing business icons, AFA kids go, they were all planned. Wife wanted three I wanted two (the Discounted Future Cost of the third child was just too high at the time, I thought). I subsequently learned the true meaning of the expression, "Men ask. Women decide."

There was only one way we weren't having the third child.

But I was right about the Cost.
