    • ssss

    • You called it right, I was watching the trading
      and I was coming over here to offer congrats and
      such, and the site was down again.

      Secret!?! We
      won't hold ya to it. You can tell. (Sure we won't)

    • As I mentioned yesterday we will be above 21 day M.A. and at this
      writing at 10.55 P.M. EST we are well above 21 day M.A.
      Enjoy ride till it hit supply area at....secret

    • This is just my opinion, but I beleive the
      warrants can be exercized upon the achievements of certain
      production milestones for RMBS technology. This is why Intel
      has supported RMBS technology so strongly. Let's say
      for grins and giggles that I am correct in assuming
      that RMBS will be a $1,000 stock 4 years from now
      those warrants are now worth close to $1B for intel,
      exercizable over a five year period during which RMBS market
      share is still growing they may have to take a $200MM
      charge per year to that point it will be
      chump change because I am sure that RMBS revenues will
      be huge...remember we are talking about a company
      run by Harvard and MIT boys....they have probably
      created a no lose situation with absolut support of

      Again just my opinion...


    • That is an informative site.....Thanks!


    • Institutions also sold 2.7M shares over the last 90 days. The news is good - they are accumulating more shares.

    • This is what they said in Dec. about their
      contemplated uses of RMBS in their products:


      ORANGE, California, December 14, 1998 - Transcend
      Information Inc., one of the world's largest OEM memory
      manufacturers, has entered into an agreement with Rambus Inc. to
      produce Direct Rambus RIMM modules.
      Intel, with the
      endorsement of leading PC OEMs, is enabling Rambus(circle-R)
      memory for use in performance desktop PCs in

      Transcend's agreement clears the way for its full
      implementation of Rambus architecture in Transcend's
      award-winning product line. Rambus high-bandwidth memory RIMM
      module enjoys broad industry support. System
      applications for Rambus
      RIMM modules include personal
      computers, workstations and servers. Rambus RIMM modules
      will provide up to three times the effective
      performance over today's PC100 SDRAM DIMM modules. At the
      same time, Rambus RIMM modules use
      industry assemblies similar to those of today's DIMM
      memory modules. For PC main memory, a Direct Rambus
      memory system will fit within the same physical, power
      and thermal profiles of a similarly configured
      100-MHz synchronous DRAM memory

    • Faster processors, the Accelerated Graphics Port,
      and faster serial buses are the platform ingredients
      driving the need for higher system memory bandwidth. As
      processor performance increases and more and more
      multimedia and 3D functions are incorporated, high-bandwidth
      memories are essential to sustaining system performance.
      Intel's goal is to ensure that memory subsystems continue
      to support evolving platform requirements through
      1999 and beyond. It is especially important to ensure
      that the memory roadmap evolves together with the
      performance roadmaps for processors, I/O and graphics. To
      meet this goal, Intel continuously works with industry
      memory vendors to set leadership directions in the
      adoption and support of new memory technologies (EDO,
      SDRAM, Direct RDRAM) paving the way for faster, cheaper
      PC platforms.
      The current state-of-the-art
      memory technology is synchronous DRAM, or SDRAM. Through
      1998 and the beginning of 1999, mainstream memory
      bandwidth requirements will be satisfied by 100-MHz SDRAM
      performance. In parallel with Intel� Chipset product
      development, Intel worked with leading DRAM vendors providing
      the specifications to facilitate the development of
      SDRAM components and memory modules before the
      platforms were introduced. This process achieved industry
      adoption of 100-MHz SDRAM to complement new, faster
      Pentium� II processor-based systems. Beginning in 1999,
      the PC platform will start using Direct RDRAM to
      further enhance the interactive lifelike visual
      experiences on the standard PC platform, including
      workstation-quality 3D graphics and consumer-quality video.

      Video, richer 3D applications and the natural adaptation
      of the PC platform to the Visual Connected PC and
      Constant Computing environment keep evolving the PC
      architecture. New PC designs that will be based on faster
      Pentium II processors are driving the need for
      ever-higher system memory bandwidth. Intel's leadership and
      industry participation are delivering new memory
      technologies which enable the development of higher
      performance PCs.
      Direct RDRAM technology is needed in
      the 1999 time frame to further support PC
      applications that will provide interactive, lifelike
      experiences. Intel and Rambus are working together to extend
      Rambus technology to meet PC platform memory
      requirements for 1999 and beyond. At the September 1998 Intel
      Developers Forum (IDF), Intel and Rambus demonstrated the
      technology using an Intel test chip. The demo focussed on
      showing the very clean signals running at over 400 MHz in
      various trace configurations. During the presentation
      sessions Intel and Rambus architects explained how the
      fast data rates are achieved, and what system design
      considerations the PC motherboard designer has to be aware of.
      In November 1998, Intel showed a technology demo of
      a PC system with Direct RDRAM to press and analyst.
      This signified a major milestone on the way to full
      production in 1999.
      Intel has delivered the PC100 SDRAM
      Component Specification, as well as the Serial Presence
      Detect and 100-MHz DIMM specifications to major vendors
      and OEMs. These specifications as well as "Gerber"
      files were updated in February 1998, on the Intel
      Developer Web site. They provide the information needed to
      develop memory modules to support the latest Intel�
      platforms through 1998 and the beginning of 1999. The
      latest addition is a specification for "Low Cost 8Mx8
      based Unbuffered PC SDRAM DIMM," that allows for single
      sided assembly for 64-MB modules.
      Direct RDRAM is
      on track for a 1999 ramp. PC OEMs are encouraged to
      design systems that can support multiple speed versions
      of RDRAM, in particular 300 MHz and 400 MHz. This
      will allow for the most cost and availability
      flexibility. PC OEMs and DRAM vendors should continue the
      process to further discuss the anticipated product ramp
      in 1999.
