When Intel introduces a new generation of CPUs, the chips usually come with an updated core-logic platform. That platform is dutifully adopted by motherboard makers, which roll out fresh models to meet the latest CPUs. The recent Ivy Bridge-E launch didn't fit the pattern, though. Intel's new family of high-end desktop processors arrived solo, without a new platform attached.
On the one hand, that's pretty awesome. Folks who bought X79 motherboards for Sandy Bridge-E a couple years ago should be little more than a firmware flash away from being able to drop in the new Ivy-based hotness. It's hard to complain about getting more mileage out of Intel's most expensive desktop socket.
On the other hand, I'm kind of bummed out. Although motherboard vendors have updated their X79 offerings since that platform debuted in 2011, it's been a while since the most recent round of revisions. We've been spoiled by the first crop of Haswell motherboards, which boast more mature firmware and software, extra connectivity, and snazzy new features. Older X79 boards look especially dated next to the latest 8-series designs.
Asus apparently agrees. The motherboard giant has released the X79-Deluxe to ensure that Ivy Bridge-E has access to the innovations packed into its latest boards. Naturally, we had to take a closer look.
Network connectivity rounds out the X79-Deluxe's hardware payload. Excess abounds here, too. There are dual Gigabit Ethernet controllers: one from Intel and one from Realtek. 802.11ac Wi-Fi is provided by a Broadcom adapter, and the board also supports Bluetooth 4.0.
Asus' accompanying Wi-Fi software is particularly robust. In addition to offering the usual client and access-point modes, it has remote desktop and media streaming functionality.
Interesting thing that...if I could find 1 billion dollars of investment for my company I might be able to find 1 billion in value too...
I'll be holding you to your words as will many here....can see it now..ooo..now it's time to tag along and pretend I didn't say those things...lol ^^

While Macau enjoys the status of being the largest gambling market in the world and dominates Asia, there is a new market that could soon be the number two gambling spot in the world. With Tokyo set to host the 2020 Olympic games, Japan has received just the boost it needs that will almost certainly result in it legalizing gambling at hotel resort like complexes.
It is estimated that should gambling be legalized in Japan, their market could be worth at least $10 billion annually as well as provide employment opportunities.
Gaming powerhouses like Wynn Resorts, Caesars Entertainment Corp., Genting and Melco Crown Entertainment are just a few who are already scouting out potential locations for new casinos. Like in the US these gaming companies are looking for local partners and names such as Mitsubishi Corp. and gaming machine makers like Sega Sammy Holdings have been mentioned.
Besides the US based gambling companies interested in Japan’s casino market, local Asian operators like SJM Holdings who are Asia’s largest casino operators have also stated their desire to set up shop in Japan. Chief Executive officer Ambrose So confirmed this in an interview last week,” We can bring technical know-how to a local partner in Japan.”
Needless to say the awarding of the Olympics to Tokyo by the IOC has sent share prices in Japan’s biggest contractor Taisei Corp. soaring by up to 19% as there is expectation for guaranteed growth.
Analysts like Jay Defibaugh of CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets in Tokyo have stated that the successful Olympic bid will be beneficial towards the push to legalize casinos in Japan. He said,” We have all the ingredients to make it happen, so anything that gets the administration to put a high priority on casinos versus all the other issues they’re dealing with is good.”

He's just got a bad case of Arena Diarrhea. I bet Belviq can help cure his compulsive obsessive behavior towards Arena. I can think of a lot more respectable ways of making a living but it's his choice.
over 3.5 in u s profits ? thats almost 40 cents in us profits... so how do you get 30-40 for Netsol
this quarter... Are you expecting losses from other operations ? The stock is trending down for the last 7-10 days..... Not a positive sign for these types of numbers...
It says he is the acting CEO. Why in the world people cannot accept reality is beyond me. I am not saying it. HE SAID IT ON NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO. DO YOU GET IT? HE SAID HE IS THE ACTING CEO. SO IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT OR YOU THINK YOU ARE SO FN SMART GO TELL HIM TO STOP SAYING HE IS THE FIN ACTING CEO GENIUS.
I am long here, but $30? Can I sell you some calls?
Bay Trail looks good, for a closer 'apples to apples' comparison:
Yes, this is a great idea!
This old and prestigious DE law firm should be ashamed of themselves!
As we know, Wallace thinks everyone who posts here is "marty" or "paula". He has accused me of being "marty", an idiot, and a stooge.
I am none of these!
I also think there are enough individual posters here who should contact this DE law firm and tell him what all Wallace is doing!
You're right, Gail, what you have said all along is that it is totally unacceptable and unethical for an attorney to be behaving like he does on this board!
They should be contacted forthwith!
