The Hipcricket Partneship Allows MM to Offer its Customers a Phone # DB 2nd only to Facebook
Hippcricket currently has more than 45 million active mobile phone numbers collected from the many campaigns it has managed for its brand customers. This phone number data base is second only to Facebook in the mobile ad space. Hipcricket’s total mobile marketing service suite reminds us of the platform of products and services that Aquantive built so successfully for online marketers prior to being purchased by Microsoft for more than $6 billion.

MM BETTER BETTER BETTER buy HIPP. MM's biggest competition, Google, just proved it has a true weakness in mobile advertising and marketting and an OTC company HIPP was THE solution. Big companies like modellise have a lot of $ to throw at MM but they wont do it wrecklessly exposing themselve to infringment etc..
Google couldnt gurantee that patent infringement protection on its own. it needs HIPP and MM needs to puonce on that weekness and buy the ONE company that even big bad google recognized can guarantee providing mobile marketing services to big companies WHILE ALSO PROTECTING THEM FROM BEING SUBJECT TO PATENT INFRINGMENT. HIPP has the best mobile services capability AND the patenetded legal cover included. WIN WIN!!!
This is fodder for day traders until it files for bkrcy. Its top shelf clientele will not renew campaigns. Obviously they didn't have enough top shelf clientele otherwise receivables would have been collectable. They sold services to the all of the riff raff who never had intentions of paying and the few reputable clients they had who did pay couldn't carry make up the gap to the tune of $100 million. There are just too many well run competitors, who are in no danger of bankruptcy, now swooping in to provide services to the cream of Velti's clients. They don't have the cash to fight the multitude of lawsuits and also run the business. While Velti fights to survive, its competition will instead be dedicating their resources toward continued growth. Unfortunately for Velti, their good clients have better managed and cleaner run companies to flock to. ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE...VELTI IS WEAK...AND NOW ON DEATH WATCH!!!
I am a long who hasn't posted in a very long time. I am looking for the board where the longs now share/discuss pertinent info for longs. I have been long for a few years and am holding. Any info to join the new board would be appreciated.
This board has truly become a cesspool of idiotic bashers who never back up their posts with any facts. BTW bashers, opinions are not facts; they are just like butt holes...everyone has one and they ALL stink. Try using facts bozos!! I dare you!!,l;
That was probably the best post in a while. Again, it represents logic based on all of the realities of the current state of the company after it has undergone some turbulent circumstances. I have been invested since it was branded Modavox and I have continued to invest based on the risk/reward and have accumulated 120,000 shares at a pretty good cost basis. I doubt that there is any significant bad news baked into the current pps and I actually agree that the current pps is reflecting irrational pessimism. Irrational investors who want big returns also want to buy shares low when the story and the news on the stock is all positive and management has the company running on all cylinders, reaping huge profits. Good luck finding that company and you might as well spend your time searching for the Holy Grail instead. The naysayers always bash and use childish gibberish and comments that are completely devoid of any supporting DD.
I find it quite satisfying to know that they will miss out on this investment and all others that offer substantial upside. They are the chaff, the boys, the average Joe, the one who caught the average size fish, the one who married the plain average girl instead of the hottie he had balls too small to approach. Yes this investment requires big balls and I don’t blame the small-balled basher for not investing. It’s not their fault they inherited their dads yellow belly and mini-balls.
Justnik comments are clearly examples of what happens when you eat lead-paint chips during the devlopemental years. Don't try and make sense of it. Just tell him you like the helmet he was precribed by his neurologist and shrink, agree with his psycho-babble, and wait till his attention gets captured by a shinny object in his home and then he will go away.

Qualcomm Bets On Mobile Ads
March 11, 2008
Qualcomm continues to invest outside its core business of wireless chips: The company has purchased Irish mobile advertising firm Xiam for $32 million. Xiam's demographic/behavioral targeting software lets mobile carriers offer their subscribers customized ads and content offers, like music, games, etc. Qualcomm says the deal "will be neutral" to its 2008 earnings.
Make no mistake; Qualcomm is a definite infringer on Augme IP. They purchased a behavioral targeting company name Xiam back in 2008 and have since incorporated their behavioral targeting technology into their Qualcomm Brew platform.
If Qualcomm has had (or does still has) any interest in acquiring Augme is an area of speculation but any supposed interest by QUALCOMM is most likely not solely based on the shared patent filing services they both use. I am sure that shared service has kept Augme's IP within Qualcomm's radar but QUALCOMM has been using their money since 2008 to step outside of its core chip business and behavioral targeting is what they have put those efforts towards. Augme's suits have Qualcomm nervous and subsequently interested in their IP because Qualcomm knows they are the BIG target on Augme's list of infringers and will be promptly sued once the IP get a validation event.
Do your DD and Google "Qualcomm behavioral targeting" and read through some of the results. It's not easy to find the all of the dots to connect but the dots are there and they do connect.
Technology makes strange bedfellows!!!
