clear violation of the various IDSY Rental Fleet patents. IDSY must immediately file a suit. IDSY blew it by not suing ZIPCar. We can blame Jagid for that. This is clearly on Ehrman. Hit them early before this takes off.
I don't care if they are a new VMS customer with a potential to be large in that space. That was Jagid's mistake with ZIPCar. Either you have IP or you don't. Let's see if Ehrman has baaaalllls or not.
Not talking about huge sums of money. Just the principal of defending IP. A suit will also lead to publicity and then more settlements from others as well.
GENERAL MOTORS IS launching a car-sharing program. It’s called Maven, it’s available in exactly one city, and, frankly, it’s an unexciting riff on ZipCar. But GM isn’t really competing with ZipCar. It’s placing a bet on the future.
The Detroit automaker’s done a lot of that this month. It introduced the Chevy Bolt, the first mass-market electric car. It bought the remains of Sidecar, the defunct Uber competitor, to strip it for parts. It’s working with Mobileye to develop maps for robo-cars. It’s working with Lyft to build a network of driverless vehicles.
And now Maven, which the company announced Wednesday. At first glance, you might consider this an odd move. Maven is available only in Ann Arbor, Michigan—though GM plans to move into other cities soon—and it doesn’t offer the convenience of Uber or Lyft. Oh sure, there’s money to be made in car-sharing, as ZipCar and others have shown. But it’s small potatoes for a company like GM. It isn’t until you take the long view that this move makes sense. Maven can be the foundation for the self-driving car network GM wants to build.
Maven is key to how GM is addressing that shift. At first, it will be available to students and faculty at the University of Michigan’s Ann Arbor campus. Chevrolet vehicles—Volts, Sparks, Malibus, and Tahoes—will fill 21 parking spots. Users can reserve cars through the Maven app, and use their phone to unlock and start the vehicle.
and if you shorted Avis and Hertz instead of TAXI, you be up 2X+ on a much more liquid stock. Like I said, you all svck
aren't you the same guy who argued with me when the stock price was $36 just a few weeks ago? dude, your DOWN 33% in 2 weeks. Obviously you missed something
Dougherty dropped coverage. Explains the Friday sell-off. Now that IDSY has a Line of Credit, a secondary is unlikely. Dirty game these underwriters play: initiate coverage, get secondary underwriting fees, dump on dummies like caseyboy2 who bought at the $22.75 secondary, drop coverage
I always suspected something was amiss with the Dougherty coverage
except that interest rates are going up and the cycle is now going against them. Would you pay $15K for one of their used cars? I wouldn't touch them
why has no audio been provided? Other companies I follow already have the audio available. Some had real-time time streaming. This is one strange company
Needham conference sure sounded positive. Does not seem like dividend is in any jeopardy
One thing I learned is PCGS has 70% of Vintage coin market but only 30% of Modern market. CEO did say they were gaining share in modern market
