Would silent films have had any success after talkies came out if the silent film makers began making silent movies in colour?

Will the publishing industry survive technology if the publishing industry comes up with clever new ways of doing the same old stuff?

I know, I know, I've heard it before.  The Publishers are doing a bang up job. Business is good.

The Metaphor:

"Don't tell me how to run my business you rapscallion.  My Great Grandpa started the Corn Cob Shipping and Delivery Company nearly a hundred and fifty years ago. 

We're the only shipping company in the surrounding 11 counties and the only company to ship U-Needa Biscuits in the surrounding 17 counties. 

I'm not gonna have some whippersnapper come in here and tell me I gotta buy no new fangled motor car to stay in business.  We been delivering U-Needa biscuits by horse and wagon fer 150 years and we'll keep right on doing it that way fer another 150 years.  Now git, you varmint."

Enough said?  No.  Enough said!

Sincerest regards,
