    INVN setting itself up to be acquired (IMO)

    I agree with Dseigel's assessment that this acquisition should help solidify chances of INVN in the I watch, but I wonder about the timing. Seems like today's acquistions are fantastic, but INVN will need some time to digest and (my guess is) merge the technologies involved into new combined sensors. I wonder how fast that can be done and whether we are talking about Iwatch 1 or Iwatch 3 or whatever the name sequence is.

    The PRelease says Movea is the owner of 100+ patents and I have to think patents are going to have monster value in this industry as companies consolidate and uses expand based on various combinations of patented technologies....

    This move (IMO) really sets INVN up to be acquired itself as one of the big boys will surely be interested in "capturing" this technology and various patent rights for itself and to the exclusion of its competitors. I suspect several upgrades might be released based on just this rationale and, at the end of the day, INVN will not be around by the end of 2015 having been gobbled up by Apple, Samsung, Google or another player in the field.

    Just my reaction: Lex
