Had Lucent put some backing behind Durando, while they still had it, the question of MPHASE'S survival would now be moot. Gives you an idea just how badly Lucent was being run. Will MPHASE survive? Right now its chances are improving.
Durando was hanging around Lu because he was paying them 100k/mo so he could claim they were a "partner" working on the halfassed 'Traverser' that never sold, while printing some of the 4+ billion shares of mPhase that have been dumped. It was there he ran into the Russian cleaning out his lab who turned him on to the nanograss battery thingy, which was never made but turned into the sophomoric battery-in-a-Baggie that powers the $300 flashlight. Last I heard the Russian (lifton) was buying an interstate battery franchise! Roflmao!
