"... yep..bashers trying to look smart, simply because Smartgrid roll outs been essentially stalled for 4 years ..."
Echelon appears to disagree with you. Echelon seems much more bullish about smart meter shipments in 2013 and beyond ... in fact, if you look at Echelon's numbers, you leave with the impression that Echelon thinks of 2013 as the "inflection point" for smart meter shipments. Go figure!
At the Needham conference (January 2013), Mr. Slackey, CFO of Echelon, presented a statistic entitled "smart meter shipments" for 2013 and beyond. The presentation cites Pike and Northeast Group as Echelon's sources (p. 12). According to this statistic Echelon expects the following numbers of smart meters to be shipped in Europe alone:
Smart Meter Shipments (Europe):
2013: ~10 million
2014: ~17 million
2015: ~24 million
2016: ~26 million
2017: ~27 million
2018: ~28 million
2019: ~24 million
2020: ~22 million
This really does not look like Echelon thinks of smart grid roll outs as being stalled for 4 years.
But don't quote ME on these numbers if they happen to be wrong. I am just reporting on what Mr. Slackey recently presented to the investment community.
I sure lost.... precious time clicking dumb messages like this so I can hit the ignore button.
I will ! Just as I have been paying like many others for the past 30 years or so . But hey , all things come to a close . I have disconnected from cable subscription due to , finding that I was paying over $100 a month for TWC and not feeling I was getting my money's worth . At first it felt strange after all the years , you get used to it , But after a few weeks it felt very liberating and not to mention , I didn't feel like I was being brainwashed by the advertising which in most cases lasts longer than the show I was watching , if you add up the minutes .It was simply awful . So , in response to your question , We all have been paying and not getting our money's worth if you ask my opinion . I will be ready to pay again for ITV as long as it's going to be enjoyable and satisfactory to my tastes and needs of watching not theirs. A.D

$21 sounds realistic, but I assume that the board wants more and rightly so. Including new management team and business plan presentations the board is probably squeezing the last penny out of the negotiations. 2 more days!
Flank or tube?????? Gotta go. My South African lobster tail is done. Gotta make the brown butter.........

I think the last thing that Cook and Co. will do is take on debt.
are you a mowrawn or what- there aint a shred of Marxism left on the planet- a handful of countries claim to be soshulist yet but like Cuba they are reforming to hybrid capitalist soshulist economies. This is a concept that you are incapable of comprehending. Its sort of like the theory of relativity where the speed of light is constant under all situations which is similarly difficult to envision- Get help- surely there are educational facilities available for the mentally challenged who are allowed to roam free from their institutions
Supplier for Everett-built Boeing jets faces possible
A company that supplies parts for Boeing's Everett-built jets could face a strike by Machinists.
Over the weekend, members of Local District 751 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers rejected a contract offer from Hytek Finishes. Union members also authorized a strike of the Kent-based manufacturer.
The union has not yet set a date for when the strike will start, said Kevin Cummings, the union's lead negotiator. Cummings said he has offered to hold one more bargaining session with Hytek management before the union sets a date for the strike.
"We want to give management one last chance," he said in a statement.
Hytek's 180 Machinists do metal coating and finishing on aircraft parts for all of Boeing's widebody jets: the 787, 747-8, 777 and 767. All four are built in Everett. A second 787 assembly line is in North Charleston, S.C.
Hytek is a subsidiary of Bellevue-based Esterline Technologies, which also owns Everett-based Korry.
The union says a strike at Hytek would be disruptive not only to Boeing but throughout the aerospace industry.
"There are very few companies in the world certified to do this kind of work, and fewer still in the United States," the Machinists' Cummings said.
Besides Boeing, Hytek's customers include BAE, Bell Helicopters, Gulfstream, Triumph Aerostructures and United Technologies. Hytek workers also supply parts for the Pentagon's F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
Workers at Hytek voted to join the Machinists union in 2011.
The union says the key sticking point has been Hytek's unwillingness to negotiate fairly. The National Labor Relations Board in November ruled that Hytek had committed eight violations of the National Labor Relations Act.
The Machinists said Monday that they are going forward with strike plans and conducted training on Saturday. The union has 33,000 other members nearby to support the Hytek workers during the walkout, many of whom work at Boeing.
Boeing already faces a potential strike by 7,400 members of the Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace. After nearly a year of negotiating, the technical workers represented by SPEEA rejected Boeing's second contract offer last week and granted negotiators approval to call a strike. SPEEA-represented engineers approved the contract.
Boeing and SPEEA are to resume talks Wednesday with the help of federal mediators and with hopes of avoiding a strike by technical workers.
