This of course does not mean significant money can be made playing the intraday spread as well as
some trends and pumps based on press releases. I would personally avoid this like the plague when
the 10-Q is made publicly because my guess - and it is only a guess and not fact - is it will be one ugly
filing with SEC. Of course, if I am correct and the stock drops into the low 20's or teens because of this
and it appears MEDL is merely going to dilute and/or sell of some Hang W/ equity for cash flow to pay
Maltin and Swartz (among other people and obligations) then it may be an opp to buy and wait for the
inevitable pump and then get out for a nice profit. Just remember, all pump and dumps, and you need
to decide if this is a P&D scam or a real company with a nice dream and a chance to do wonders, but
all pump & dumps eventually come to an end. It's like musical chairs. And you do not want to be around
when there are no more chairs...
After seeing the missed opportunities (a booth at SXSW), spends on a VC 6 minute talk where MEDL
"forgot" to mention in the press release they paid to play, the old website having some content that is
misleading in my opinion and the new website even worse (in my opinion)...the lack of any published
time table to monetize, the separation of Hang W/ as a different private company, the limited appeal of
the app and competitors with similar and I would say, "better apps," the lack of user engagement, Maltin
being CEO of Hang W/, MEDL and DD all at once which gives the appearance of a serious conflict
of interest, the complete ignoring of valid questions on this board and attempts to contact MEDL
execs & being ignored, press releases that I feel are ambiguous and egregiously misleading...did I miss
anything Emerick55 or Chase? My due diligence here - and this is MERELY my opinion and not FACT,
is that this company (MEDL) exists with a main purpose to provide steady, monthly income through
one or more streams for the two founders. That seems to be the main concern. I find their marketing
efforts to be poorly conceived, opaque, ill timed and the demographic they seem to embrace less than
ideally suited for an app of this type and also shortsighted because an app used primarily by gansta
rappers and potheads is not going to be an app that middle America is going to embrace no matter
how good it is. So...you can give them the benefit of the doubt if you like and say they just don't
have solid management skills and probably should turn over strategic planning to someone with
experience in raising capital, stellar project management skills, and perhaps M&A or buy out experience
if they really want to do an honest assessment and truly are looking out for MEDL's best interests or
you can look at all this and conclude that "this does not jive well, maybe Split is correct and these two
guys are milking this for all its worth at shareholder expense." Thoughts?
Well, so much for Swartz and Maltin visiting Google HQ and alluding to "big and important things" in
Five Head's Hang W/ broadcast...
BS as in bullsh!## Really? Does anyone believe Maltin or MEDL is in a position to take potshots at or criticize the most successful social media platform? A truly ill-equipped group of individuals run that circus.
Conan O'Brien will be taking your questions May 8th at 10:30 PM E/T during a live hangout on Google +. Just add Team Coco to your circles and tag your video questions with #AskConan.
The differences between Hangout and Hang W/:

-Hangout broadcasts in HD
-Hangout has a ton more features
-Hangout is backed by Google
Sentiment: Strong Sell
..."Facebook has a BS 'like.' It's easy to do," said Maltin. "Our users are way more engaged ... and so far it's been a very viral product."
Group broadcasting, private messaging, new channels and more celebrities are coming soon to the mobile app, which will only increase its popularity. Maltin and his team are working to help users find things that interest them to better the app.
What do you think?
Tuned in again @ 4:30 pm PST. 9 users, less than 40 viewers. At the same time Twitter was averaging about 40 tweets per second. I'm sure advertisers are lining up now to get their goods/services shown on hang w/!
When they start with 3rd party commercial advertising, I believe stats regarding followers/viewers on FB and Twitter count as well as genuine Hang w/ - viewers. How will that contribute to sales/revenues? IMHO that should be huge, because e.g. every broadcast could also be seen live on FB. In 50s case how do his 7 million followers on FB make Hang w/ or MEDL more valuable?
I do still believe in the Hang w/ concept as it is unique for now, but how long will it stay unique? I also assume that MEDL doesn't have the need to rush into something medium rare since they have or earn some money already. Snapchat was sold for $3 bn, but they still had some issues regarding safety because the concept and programming wasn't perfect.
I am waiting for the official start of 3rd party ads as this is the key in generating money. But MEDL and Hang w/ must move on and advance.
By the way: could someone post the link to that Maltin interview stating that in-app messaging is coming?
I wrote it before: my favorite is Charlie Sheen.
What is your fav?
And who should join management for 'celeb-relations'? Probably would be the mv-position at Hang w/.
I don't think this was a total waste, maybe a mediocre. I am waiting for new stats and MEDL will provide them. But delaying the numbers will scare off the most optimistic shareholder. Come on MEDL! What's the problem?
The entire event became tragic, when 23 people were injured and 2 killed after a drunk driver in a stolen car drove into a crowd there.
So I am not surprised by the lack of a press release. I believe this is being respectful.
It is on the webpage, but when I put up the link YMB removes the entire post. From the homepage it is in the directory slash app.
My advice to you would be to get rid of them before the next Financial Report comes out - is that on 4/1? Can someone confirm. Curious to see if a pump occurs before that. As I have a feeling JUST A FEELING that this is gonna be a gruesome bloody cash sheet this time around. Time shall tell but I am curious as to the date earnings are slated to come out if anyone knows.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Agreed Donsdomain333. We need to see it happen. Not a fan of JO seeing his broadcasts. Need someone different.
For the cost of a few plane tickets, food, hang w/ banners, tee-shirts and hats.... I say no. They got some exposure. Concerts and trade shows are not gonna bring in huge downloads. A- list celebrities do . Not just one A-lister, but at least a few. Maltin said, "Celebrities are a tricky bunch". Medl needs to bring in someone who can bring in those celebrities. I have no idea who that person is or should be, but I hope medl sure thought about needing such a person if hang w/ stalled. It has lots of potential. Putting the right people in place seems to be the trickiest part.
