    Another mPhake red herring: FROST & SULLIVAN AWARD FLUFF PR

    The MO (modus operandi) since 1996 has been to resurrect a dead technology pay a lab service typically at a University to play with it (run tests and experiments, etc.) then associate it with sexy names to name drop ad naseam i.e. Army, BMW, Porsche etc. All the while cranking out those self-paid for FLUFF PR's to HAWK it and sukker in NEWVIES, thereby spiking the price up in which the insiders (warrant and CD holders) who loaned mPhake money, sell. And all the while NEVER TAKING ANY OF THEIR DIVERSELY DIFFERENT 7 TECHNOLOGIES in 16 years to mass production during all that time.

    Ok newbies, here's one more of many FACTUAL EXAMPLES of TACTICS mPhake uses to run their sc-am.

    This week, mPhake cranked out one of those infamous nothing FLUFF PR's (publishing of PR's are paid for by the company folks, it's tantamount to tooting ones own horn).

    "mPhase Technologies Receives Frost & Sullivan 2013 Innovation Award
    Company stands out for success in technology innovation
    PR NewswirePress Release: mPhase Technologies, Inc. – Tue, Jul 2, 2013 11:14 AM EDT"

    BUT, lets take a CLOSER LOOK as to what is REALLY GOING ON.

    - Frost & Sullivan is a FEE-BASED "partnership". In other words mPhake PAYS THEM for their efforts.

    Don't believe me? Below is ripped straight from the FROST & SULLIVAN website:

    "Growth Partnership Services
    Frost & Sullivan, the Growth Partnership Company, founded in 1961, partners with clients to create value through innovative growth strategies. Our subscription-based research empowers your team with the knowledge to make intelligent decisions, and our best practices ensure your execution is creative, cost effective, and efficient. "

    mPhake is, quote, a "partner" and so mPhake, in FACT, has PAID the FROST & SULLIVAN Co., that awarded them the "AWARD".

    See how it's never what it seems with these shysters! Durando spends his days creating illusions to sukker you in.

      Promega to refuse Frost and Sullivan Award

      Mannheim, 7 August 2006 - Promega GmbH, Mannheim, refuses the Frost & Sullivan Europe 2006 Product Innovation Award. To publish the receipt of the award, Promega would have had to obtain an ‘Award Licence’ from Frost & Sullivan.

      The life science company Promega with its company headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin, USA, was chosen as the winner of the Frost & Sullivan Europe 2006 Product Innovation Award for its cutting-edge portfolio of reagents and systems (kits and full automation) used for nucleic acid purification and similar success on the European market.

      However, in order to be able to publish the receipt of the prize, Frost & Sullivan required Promega to purchase an “Award Licence”.

      “We clearly regard the fact that the publication of obtaining a prize is associated with costs for the prize-winner as ethically very questionable,” said Dr. Peter Quick, CEO of Promega GmbH.

      “We find that this equals an invitation to corrupt behaviour.

      We will therefore not accept the prize.” Promega GmbH had mentioned its concern vis-à-vis Frost & Sullivan but clarification of the issue could not be achieved.

    • Here's more about this silly award giving FROST & SULLIVAN Co.

      From the COMPLAINTS BOARD dot comm website:

      "Frost & Sullivan

      Fraudulent/misleading "awards" sold to businesses.
      Complaint Rating: 73 % with 22 votes
      Frost & Sullivan sell "awards" to businesses, as alleged recognition for something special about the target company, something that F&S has supposedly done extensive research about. In reality, many of those awards are handed out (not for free, they are sold as commercial products!) with little or no real justification. The only justification is that award sales generate substantial revenue for F&S.
      In fact, companies are actively targeted for award sales, based on a) whether they seem to have a liking for awards, and b) whether they look like a potential future client to F&S.
      Similarly, identical awards are often sold to direct competitors in an industry, which ought to be an impossibility. To get around that, F&S invents convoluted award names that differ from each other only in some insignificant detail."

      AND
      From the BILL AND TED ARE DEAD blog site from an alleged EX-EMPLOYEE of F&S:

      "26 Responses to 'Frost & Sullivan Award'"

      I agree with you completely… F&S is one big joke. I should know, I used to work there, and wrote many of these awards myself. Yes, the awards are usually selected by a careful analysis… meaning they are given to the company whom they feel will be gullible enough to license the award and purchase the paperweight. Sorry, my friend, but your boss, or whoever paid for the licensing fee, got hosed. I’d do a Google search for “Frost & Sullivan”+Promega to see what this company, a major player in the biologics industry, has to say. While I wish the best for you and your company/professional career, you’re absolutely right… F&S is not a magical fairy that will grant anyone professional success."
