    Kevin, one more question

    Could you give us your opinion of this study? I would particularly like you to address the conclusions.

    • Gee yesterday I messed up Apple was $3.56 a share in June '97 so today 100 shares would be $250,000 and 100 shares of REFr bought the same day @ $6.13 would be worth a cool $290 Sorry for the bad tapping on the keyboard

    • I just ran the numbers, comparing a 10 year "investment" in REFR with a 10 year investment in SPY, (The ETF which represents the S&P 500).

      I thought that SPY would well represent what the average investor had accomplished over the last decade.

      Well, it has been a tough 10 years, if you bought SPY at the close of 8/22/2002, you are only up 46.49%, A positive return but not great. You did collect a decades worth of dividends, and that is some thing.

      Now, REFR closed at $11.35 on 8/22/2012, for a LOSS of 73.92%,at today's closing price, and no dividends whatsoever to help soothe the pain. REFR pays no dividends.

      YES!!!! Live Long and Prosper!!!! Just avoid REFR.

      2014 Mercedes C-Class spotted

      The redesigned 2014 C-Class from Mercedes-Benz has already been spotted testing in the winter, and on the open roads in the summer time.

      Now the next generation luxury cruiser has been caught in autoblog’s spy photos lapping the Nurburgring.

      It says in a report the style looks to be similar to that of the last generation, and is supposed to be based on cues taken from the F800 concept.

      Autoblog also says its interior tech will feature a tablet-like display, already found in the new A-Class. A panoramic glass roof is also expected, and will use Mercedes’s Magic Sky Control.

      The biggest news for the new C-Class is that it will be the first small car in the Benz lineup that will use a hybrid system for power. Diesel and petrol engines will also be offered, and all powertrain options will likely be mated to a new nine-speed transmission.

      About six months after the sedan launches, a wagon should hit the market, followed some time later by a coupe and convertible.

      Meanwhile, the online auto publication also reports that the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is getting a mid-cycle refresh that will rid the car of its iconic quad-headlight setup, and add new style to the front, rear and side body panels.

      “Captured in our spy photos, the E-Class we see is a prototype wagon, but still shows off the new front end lines of the car,” it says.

      Covered in heavy plastic cladding, the front end update is concealed very well. “Still, we see that the quad headlights have been integrated into one another, and are now a more standard two light setup,” the report adds.

      It also says the LED daytime running lights have also been moved, out of the bumper and into the bottom portion of the headlight.

      The new E-Class will also lose its full car length belt-line, otherwise known as Pontoon styling.

      The line that runs the length of the car will stop around three-quarters of the way to the back, where a new line will start underneath.

      The overall look of the new E-Class is aiming to be more luxurious, to separate it further from the sportier C-Class.

      Technology will not be in short supply, as the new E-Class is destined to get improved night assist, dynamic light assistant, intelligent lane assistant, intelligent brake assistant, congestion assistant, magic ride control and heads-up display, the report says.

    • Kevin, there is another way to look at the performance of this scam. In june 1997 Apple was 43.56 today it is almost $700, in June 1997 REFR was $6.13 today it is in the terrible twos. So much for the promise of REFR technology.

    • Okay, first comment: Who uses single glazing windows anymore?

      • C'mon, Kevin, read the study and give your take on it. Or are you afraid to read it? Are you afraid to learn about its conclusions?

        That's it! The bashers are afraid of the truth. Kevin et al. are like vampires: They cannot look into the sun ... in this case the truth about SPD. Proof positive you are all frauds.

      • GLASS ON WEB - Glass News - SPD SmartGlass – The ideal solution for LEED® Projects
        SPD SmartGlass was designed to maximise the use of natural daylight in buildings to improve the well-being of the people within. The use of SPD SmartGlass on commercial projects can help achieve up to 8 LEED certification credits.

        What makes SPD SmartGlass a sustainable building product?

        Buildings are the largest source of energy consumption in the world, and energy lost through today’s inefficient windows accounts for 30% of the building heating and cooling energy consumed in the U.S.

        SPD SmartGlass is significantly more energy efficient than static glazing, providing a comfortable interior for occupants with an uninterrupted view as the need for blinds/curtains is eliminated. SPD SmartGlass provides a sustainable eco-friendly building interior whilst also enhancing the corporate image of the building.

        SPD SmartGlass can contribute to the following LEED credits:

        Sustainable Sites
        • Credit 8: Light Pollution Reduction (1 Point)

        Energy and Atmosphere
        •Prerequisite 2: Minimum Energy Performance (Required)
        •Credit 1: Optimise Energy Performance (1-19 Points)

        Indoor Environmental Quality
        •Credit 6.2: Controllability of Systems – Thermal Comfort. (1 Point)
        •Credit 7.1: Thermal Comfort – Design. (1 Point)
        •Credit 8.1: Daylight and Views – Daylight (1 Point)

        SPD SmartGlass has proven itself in testing conducted by Cambridge University in a number of different worldwide simulated climate conditions. These include locations such as Dubai and Houston, Texas, which are associated with very heavy cooling loads. In both locations SPD SmartGlass showed identical solar heat gain reduction. Due to energy consumed by HVAC systems in these hotter climates the savings in cooling loads by using SPD SmartGlass can be up to 65% of associated energy costs.

    • Hawaii: One doesn't have to even read the study to know the real facts of the matter: No one wants the crap, unless it were given away at a price so low as to allow no royalties to REFR. Even then they probably don't want it, because SPD is nothing more than a cheesy gimmick whose attraction quickly diminishes.

      That is all one needs to know about this so called "technology" that has been rejected by everyone (except stock promoters such as yourself) for 30+ years.
