whatever happened to MSFT in this space...LOL
maybe they will have to buy SMSI to have any presents in connectivity. MSFT is getting locked out as a major player in this space.
Yeah? Find me a post where I said anything about me being a "great trader". And good luck to you.
I may be the "board dweeb" as you put it, but I'll have to say you are the board idiot. WTH is a Paten? lol
wifi & lte 4G chipsets (support 3.5G) will exceed 3.5G shipments in FY10, so what does that tell you? smitty in the sweet spot. Again IMO, smitty can do $150M top-line in FY10. FY11 @$200M top-line we have a stock approaching???. Re-read the Patent's that have been issued for multi conX scenario's..... this is going to be all smitty's if they execute.
"What's a Paten?" Short for Patent (.)
A patent is a set of exclusive rights granted by a state to an inventor or his assignee for a limited period of time in exchange for a disclosure of an invention.
The procedure for granting patents, the requirements placed on the patentee and the extent of the exclusive rights vary widely between countries according to national laws and international agreements. Typically, however, a patent application must include one or more claims defining the invention which must be new, inventive, and useful or industrially applicable. In many countries, certain subject areas are excluded from patents, such as business methods and mental acts. The exclusive right granted to a patentee in most countries is the right to prevent others from making, using, selling, or distributing the patented invention without permission.
Under the World Trade Organization's (WTO) Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights, patents should be available in WTO member states for any inventions, in all fields of technology, and the term of protection available should be minimum twenty years. Different types of patents may have varying patent terms (i.e., durations).
