    This could scale up big time. Once Nassau County ramps up to their stated business with AbTech this may very well go nationwide, beginning in the troubled Northeast and spreading down the coast. Maybe even the West coast will take notice.

    ZAGG vs. LOGI

    I agree.ZAGG now has a great balance sheet but they have to return to being a double digit growth company instead of a cash cow. With their international growth plan and the hiring of some very qualified pro's,it appears that they are on the right track,time will tell.

    LOGI need to buy ZAGG in order to upgrade their product line that they compete with ZAGG. Most of ZAGG's products are better quality and functionally superior to LOGI's. A buy out would be a good move for them!

    I agree. Whit ZAGG's 20% ownership OF HZO, this could add an enormous amount to ZAGG if some huge contracts evolve with HZO.

    May be tied to the recent run up. Since the company started two years ago, it has grown exponentially and secured more than 30 electronics manufacturers as clients. They are companies that produce devices for consumers, the medical field, the military and the industrial sector.

    For example, HZO coating is found on wrist-sized GPS locators from the company Laipac. For the military, the process is used on electronic compasses used by U.S. Special Forces. It also can be used on glucose monitors for diabetics so they don’t have to take them off while showering or swimming. The next big category of devices that could benefit from HZO’s process, Bartholomeusz says, is in "wearable computing," gadgets that are worn on the body, such as the Pebble watch or Google Glass.

    Bartholomeusz won’t say who their biggest customers are in consumer electronics right now, but they are "some of the biggest and most well known brands in the consumer electronics industry," he said. So far, the company has treated about 1½ million devices with the process.

    "We are growing in all of these areas. If you look at our growth year over year, we’re encountering triple-digit growth each year," he added. "There is tremendous market demand for this solution. We don’t have known competitors. Our growth rate is predicated on how fast we can grow."

    Possibly a buy out by Logitech because ZAGG appears to have better rated products that are in the same category as Logitech. This would be a great way for Logitech to gain market share with the ZAGG product upgrades. Time will tell.

    I think something is up also. I also believe it may have something to do with HZO. The possibilities with HZO are enormousness if they start getting contracts with some big electronics companies. There is something in the air!

    I agree,ZAGGs keyboards are a superior product when compared to LOGI's. LOGI could improve their product line by taking out a competitor with a far superior product that sell more than they do because of it!

    This may be HUGE for ZAGG who owns 20% ? Of HZO. This is probably the reason for the huge up tick in both volumn and PPS increase today!
    Intel (INTC) is working with waterproof coating solution HzO to improve its high-end mobile and smart water products, reports DigiTimes. Citing sources from the upstream supply chain, Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), and Samsung (SSNLF) will join Intel in working with HzO's waterproof technology. THIS MAY BE HUGE FOR ZAGG!!!

  • Following is a statement from Steve Fleischli, senior attorney and water program director for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC):

    “After six years of litigation, it is finally official: Los Angeles County must take responsibility for its polluted stormwater runoff in the Los Angeles and San Gabriel Rivers. This water quality victory puts an end to Los Angeles County’s persistent attempts to avoid liability for its massive water pollution problem, which threatens the health of millions of Southern California residents and visitors who enjoy beloved local rivers and beaches.

    “Los Angeles County needs to face the facts and get to work to clean up its mess. It’s time for a cleaner water future for the region. With a trove of 21st century green infrastructure solutions, the County has no excuse not to ensure this pollution is addressed immediately.”

    Following is a statement from Liz Crosson, executive director of Los Angeles Waterkeeper:

    “Today represents a significant milestone in efforts to clean up the Los Angeles and San Gabriel rivers. No longer can the County deny the problem. No longer can the County ignore the law,” said Liz Crosson, executive director of Los Angeles Waterkeeper.
