Our local Walgreens' was doing 4x6s from digital media for US $0.29 each.
The infrastructure for getting hassle free prints mass market prints is
developing (so to speak)  really fast. Since the costs of kiosk  prints
from digital will tend to be lower (to the Walgreens of this world) than
chemical film development, I suspect that digital will win on both
convenience and cost grounds very shortly.

The current problem is running out of media capacity while on vacation in
an underdeveloped country. In the US, even this is not a problem. Pop into
the nearest WalMart and buy a new card. After allowing for wasted shots,
probably similar in cost to buying film and having the whole roll developed
and printed - not quite as convenient, but close.

I tried to dissuade a friend of mine from buying digital for a long
international trip coming up in November. I lost. We will see who was right
later.
