Oh Yeah, but u have to work harder to push and then to complete a new cycle...
u know...something more stimulating than grapheme or wireless charging pants...
Trading sideways until we get closer to January 29th.I don't see significant pps movement before ER.
Graphene is anticipated to have potential applications in electronics, such as depicted in the International Roadmap for Semiconductors, to build semiconductors beyond the limits of silicon-based technology. Graphene also offers promising applications for higher performance photon sensors, solar cells, and LCD screens. Yet, graphene is still at the development stage, and its commercialization pathway remains to be determined. Two of the world’s leading centers for graphene development are the University of Manchester and Georgia Institute of Technology
If you have any doubt, I urge you to go to Wikipedia and check yourself...
Firstly, research is still in such an early stages that you probably won't find much about NOK research, if any
Secondly, all you find is a few leading research Centers in the world...1) University of Manchester, 2) Georgia Tech, 3) University of Singapore...and few other in Europe and Australia...Long way to go for grapheme commercialization
"wireless charging trousers" robergratz, who has an arsenal of 7 to 10 fingers goes nuts...and you know why... hehehe...another BR "researcher"...hehehe
Champion, firstly, let it be known that u bringing Entrepreneur article published on YF.
Secondly, u using favorite pumpers method…utilizing some grains of truth to create a false impression that Nokia has an exclusive status in grapheme study, far ahead of any other participating nations or research centers, which positions NOK to benefit from it the most.
Anyone, who reads about it knows that many countries all over the world are involved in grapheme research…and that’s the FACT.
Looking back, it will probably noted as part of Nokia's establishment of shareholder confidence based upon regular dividends, steady patent income and gold plated credit ratings. Of course we know that this stuff will be dependent upon earnings. When their steady ground game comes together with some catalyst like a new product or unusual patent development, I don't want to be sitting on a sidelines bench.
Thanks Harley - that mean a lot coming from you buddy. This late in season that's considered a statement game, imo. Gonna be very hard getting past GB tho. Happy for Romo.
Ps...good game by Eli.
Good luck to you, too. I didn't mean Blackberry had no hope of being successful; I meant they have no hope of being a big company, i.e. in the order of 50 billion dollars plus. I think with QNS, security, and as you say - the patents, plus the high quality niche factor, they could easily make money and be a good investment. Just on a smaller scale than what might be possible for Nokia.
Nokia has a good history of reinventing itself and I'm confident they will do fine. I agree Blackberry is more of a pure play but I'm thinking for one about patents the company owns, which is very similar to Nokia's. Obviously, I disagree with the statement that Blackberry does not have a hope but then again that's why I put some money down for some shares of the company. Good luck, I'd like to see our Nokia shares appreciate to the teens sooner than later.
Champion, not even one word about Nokia involvement in graphene research.
Let's not exaggerate, this is multi national, multi research institutions engagement.
Unless u talking about graphene clad wireless charging trousers.
We've already heard enough about those "revolutionary", "game changing" innovations/inventions and then we learned, that it'll take many years to maturity or that someone was way ahead of us.
Interesting info...I agree...let's don't get too excited too quickly.
Graphene is just one atom thick, but it’s poised to cast a wide shadow over the future of business. Some 200 times stronger than steel yet lighter than paper and more flexible than a contortionist, graphene is hailed as a miracle material with the potential to revolutionize products and processes across industries from consumer electronics to biomedicine.
First isolated in 2004 by physicists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, who won a Nobel Prize for their efforts, graphene is essentially a crystalline carbon allotrope with two-dimensional properties. Its atoms are packed in a hexagonal pattern that resembles chicken wire, and it’s so thin, it’s virtually transparent. The unique structure translates to thermal, electrical and magnetic properties no other material can match, and the commercial applications are almost limitless. For example, graphene’s flexibility could lead to breakthroughs in wearable devices, and its feather-light weight could yield more streamlined, fuel-efficient aircraft. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has even donated $100,000 to the University of Manchester to help fund development of graphene-based condoms.
“Graphene has so much potential for use in many different businesses and many different areas,” says Elena Polyakova, CEO of Long Island, N.Y.-based Graphene Laboratories, whose Graphene Supermarket supplies nanocarbon and graphene products to more than 7,000 enterprise and academic customers. “It can replace many materials that are currently on the market.”
Graphene R&D far eclipses commercial activity, at least for now. Technology consultancy Cambridge IP states that developers and manufacturers have filed 13,000 graphene-related patents in the past five years alone, and in late 2013 the European Commission launched a billion-euro, 10-year graphene research initiative that brings together academic institutions and industrial groups from 17 nations.
An Allied Market Research forecast says the graphene market will reach $149.1 million worldwide by the end of the decade, experiencing a compound annual growth rate of 44 percent between 2014 and 2020, thanks largely to surging interest from the electronics and automotive sectors. Case in point: In April, Samsung Electronics, working with South Korea’s Sungkyunkwan University, announced a graphene synthesis method that promises to speed the material’s commercialization, touting its potential for use in flexible displays and other cutting-edge products. IBM has also unveiled a graphene-based integrated electronic circuit designed to boost wireless data transmission speeds.
But just because graphene is a miracle doesn’t mean it’s perfect. For starters, it lacks the “band gap” present in other semiconductor materials, meaning its conductivity can’t be switched on and off. Possible solutions include building in artificial breaks to open and close circuits or altering graphene’s core makeup with chemical additives. The problem is further compounded by high manufacturing costs and quality-control issues that limit the volume of defect-free graphene that’s available to researchers.
Startups like Ottawa, Ontario-based Grafoid, a graphene-focused business development firm, are tackling the production challenge head-on. Grafoid has invested in the patent-pending MesoGraf process, which generates pristine graphene from raw graphite ore, a cost-effective, single-step production method that eliminates harsh chemicals that could hamper the material’s fundamental properties.
Such processes have the advantage of being better for the planet. In fact, graphene’s low environmental impact may turn out to be its true legacy. Researchers at Rice University have proved that adding graphene oxide to water-based drilling fluids can improve oil extraction by minimizing potential leakage. Graphene may even replace some metals and other natural resources mined for manufacturing, says Gordon Chiu, founder, president and CTO of Grafoid and co-inventor of MesoGraf.
“Imagine taking something that was 100 percent oil-dependent and making it only 50 percent oil-dependent by mixing in graphene. Not only is the product lighter and stronger, but it’s also safer for the environment,” Chiu says. “I’ve always believed in new materials that can change the way we do things. Graphene has the ability to fundamentally impact how we operate as a species while still being technologically advanced.”

I love this kind of news!
And a dividend. Your shorts are holding it down but if you think that it will stay this way, good luck with that. Long and gone....
Lol. You got a three bagger like I did because it sold a division. Understand? It hasn't moved for any other "good news since."
