R.I.P. Max Factor, et. al.

2146.Yes, its true: Max Factor is being pulled from the market by the year 2010.

This article (via megaTwitterer iamkhayyam) offers a look at 20 large companies who ended in 2009. Some you've heard of; many you haven't (if you're an Oregon local anyway) and it all paints this picture of economic Darwinism in action. All of these companies are I'm certain – to anyone who's heard of them – companies that nobody probably thought would ever go away.

Sic transit gloria. And so it goes.

(PS: I was notified by a commenter that I didn't actually include the link to the article. Duh. Fixed. here's the URL for your reference: http://www.businesspundit.com/20-brands-products-that-died-in-2009/)
