Go ahead and buy the bonds and I'll buy FE. Coma back in 2015 and we'll compare notes. Bye.
I don't think GE is interested in this space anymore. They are set to drop their financial group too. They want to focus on fewer markets... less distractions and easier to manage.
They have increasing competition but they are the leader and will most certainly continue to innovate.
The price action this week seems to suggest this is more than a rumour. Dam wish I had bough a bull call spread when it tanked last earnings report. Oh well...
On the topic of large area displays, Samsung and LG have already produced large area OLED displays yet there are no equivalent QD emissive displays demonstrated....gee I wonder which technology is the lead candidate for next-gen displays?
I'm not sure that screen printing will ever be a viable alternative to inkjet for solution-based processing of OLEDs, but I am confident neither of these two printing techniques will work for QD emissive displays. As you are so gung-ho on QD, I suggest go read up on how they are printed. You obviously have a lot to learn there (more than me for sure).
Huh?? The QD print technique I have read about has exactly nothing in common with conventional 'screen printing' or 'inkjet printing' methods. You make it sound like contact printing QD's is as simple as screen printing a T-shirt logo... sheesh. I'm no expert by far, but it appears I know more than you about this.
Also, I noticed you conveniently ignored my question about the lack of any announcement of large area RGB QD emissive display prototypes. I wonder why (well not really)?
Way easier? From what I've read, RGB QD emissive displays require contact printing, and I expect this approach will inherently suffer from high costs / low yields, just like shadow mask evaporation does in the case of OLED. Inkjet-style printing of OLEDs is contactless.
Encapsulation is only one aspect of an OLED manufacturing technology. OLED and QD involve many complex processing steps and materials, all of which need to be developed and optimized. I have not seen any announcements of color emissive QD large area display prototypes... why is that?
From a technology development perspective, I believe OLED is and will continue to lead QD as far as emissive displays are concerned. QD is interesting, but far behind OLED in the race to commercialization.
And why do you mention flexible screens... TV's can be printed up on standard substrates.
MBT.TO is now a pure-play consumer telecom provider. Will BA.TO move to buy the company to expand into Manitoba now that the Allstream division that sells into the enterprise data market is no longer part of the company? I'd say yes. Interesting times ahead.
I suspect that a manufacturing process relying on OLED material evaporation with shadow masking will prove to be comparatively expensive even when yield issues are resolved. OLED TV screens will likely displace the dominant LCD technology only when a low-cost solution-based printing process is fully developed and implemented in mass production. To be frank, I expected much faster development in this area than has occurred to date.
Not much news out there about this incident, but it appears quite significant.
Niger officials said crushing and grinding units had been badly damaged at the Somair mine, which is an important part of France's energy supply chain. Niger provides around one-fifth of the uranium for France's nuclear reactors.
Looks like the market disagrees with your assessment of her capabilities. I am willing to give her the benefit of the doubt.
Nah, I think I'll stick around. This will fill the gap at 28.78 from early 2012, probably sooner rather than later, but by 2015 when my leaps calls expire for sure.
