    Workforce Reductions

    by retiredexaon Feb 23, 2015 2:35 PM
    iamgarce iamgarce Feb 24, 2015 7:26 PM Flag

    except that VZ is not cutting it's way anywhere ...
    anyone can look at a piece of information and draw whatever conclusion you want ..
    fact is , there is no longer work for many of those people and the outlook doesn't show the
    need for such a large force ..
    have you ever worked for a huge company ?? anyone who has can tell you that there some
    "in house retirees" and also some signifigant number who can comfortably retire , then when
    you look at whatever newer employees get cut, most can still go out and get a decent paying
    job .... no doubt , there will be many caught in the trap .... the 40 and 50 somethings with a
    big mortgage and kids in or heading to college ...
    fact is , nothing should be made of the cuts ...
    VZ is going to sell a bunch of towers .. then lease them back .... i have to imagine that that means
    far fewer VZ employees needed for maintenance and probably even upgrading ...
    when you analyze a company , you have to think, , then sleep on it and think some more ..
    never quit thinking .. .g

    Harry , let me put you hip to something ..
    Just the fact that VZ could spend $23 billion to get FIOS started should tell you that this is a
    very large , very powerful company , add to that 130 bil price tag to buy VOD wireless , no problems
    servicing the debt ....
    It's one thing to root for an underdog , but don't bet against a winner ... g

    Great to see IBM firing its patent weapon

    not leveraging the patent trove has been a huge mistake for IBM , i don't know why they avoid it like the
    plague .. they don't wan to manufacture anything .. okay , then restructure the show , such that licensing
    brings in some serious quid , or set up small firms to to do same .. g

    they catch those and the posts don't go through , they could filter these guys out also ...

    run , though i do not like the term "it's different this time around"
    1) Eman has delivered early user hardware in the form of 2k x 2k chips to an as yet unannounced partner ,
    2) mgmt has stated that there will be paradigm for hmd's
    3) Emagin is inside Esight , which has been getting tons of buzz for their product to enable the blind to see
    4) Emagin has new military contracts that it's working on .
    this is a lot more to go on than previous er/cc's
    the tech world is abuzz with wearable whateveryouwanttocallit ...

    said to say , anything short of breaking up the company will just be exercises in futility ..
    an astute business person grown from another pasture is needed to "fix " structural problems ..
    however , the saddest thing is that BOD needs to be overhauled and i don't see that happening ..
    for a company like IBM , the BOD is supposed to be stacked with people from those businesses
    that know what is needed and urge the company to execute ...
    somehow , the BOD and the C suite are either "in sync" and have no problem with a slow sinking
    ship , or they are just disconnected and can only tread water ...
    too bad ... looks like another GE story unfolding , fortunately , for GE , they have finally done
    what's needed , tho' it took a debacle to get them off the dime ... garce

    Does eMagin have bad luck?

    shack , how do you figure that ?
    don't answer .. i know all the answers ..
    that's why so many other companies are smoking Emagin... Google , Apple , FB , SONY , SAMSUNG..
    all companies with huge R&D budgets and vast production capacities ... they are selling
    everything OLED from general lighting to mammoth tv's ... correct ??
    Blaming mgmt is really getting tired

    and , once again , you are simply amazed that the company survives and that there are still shareholders
    who like the prospects ...
    one question ...
    when do you get the tingle ? when you hit the post button ?? or when you get a response ??

    after reading his blather ,i have to agree .. he omits many of the points that make OLED the only choice for
    some apps ...
    as OLED adoption and HMD developments continue , there will be oppositional camps and plenty of
    tripe over the wires ...
    then there will be the confusions with semantics ,,, marketing vs science .... g

  • eSight has gone viral and millions have learned about us in just the past few days! We will get back to everyone soon. Thanks for bearing with us.

    for Emagin at the SHOT SHOW ..
    check out aceofsp blog ... lots of articles .. mostly about our customers and their use of emagin displays and
    a few directly about Emagin .. we were not set up there , but our customers certainly were ... garce

    hit the new link on Acy's blog , about Google Glass is not dead .. interview with E. Schmidt ..
    most of it's blah and blah .. but a key point not mentioned .. Adding Jerry G. to staff , he danced all around
    the new specs coming , but sure sounds like it has to be OLED .. about the only way to greatly increase
    battery life , is to use less of it(or make a big one .. lol )
    Any have a clue as to who sponsored that focus group ?? was it Emagin's ?? or were they invited ? Have
    to believe the rush for those 2 x 2 protos was for this event .. Google has promised big things at the
    big gaming hoopla in June .. later .. garce

    2 big yield matters

    by iamgarce Mar 16, 2015 7:21 AM
    iamgarce iamgarce Mar 16, 2015 8:02 AM Flag

    nano ... FA is failure analysis ... at this time , i would posit that group as being the key group ..
    consider the primary factors for yield ...... materials / equipment / handling / process specs /
    operators ... and also for new products ... design flaws ...
    you can't fix yield issues , if you don't know what the cause is ...
    ALSO .. there is a reliability factor that falls under the quality umbrella , but reliability is not the
    same as quality ..
    2 strange cases that i was around will point some of this out .
    **** back in the late 70's Purdue chips were a new thing , made at EF and shipped to San Jose
    for BAT ... yields went into the crapper and nobody had a clue why .. the chips were perfect
    when shipped , then yields on the modules went to single digits almost overnight ..
    What was discovered was that the circuits were so sensitive that operators , in San Jose,
    when handling them , were blowing out the circuits , thanks to static electricity ... the
    fix was for everyone to wear grounding bracelets and all work done standing on rubber mats.
    **** a much trickier one came in the 90's when all of a sudden one of the products was getting
    field fails ... really bad news ... that product was using new ceramic substrates .. this
    was a cost effective move to make a cheaper substrate for an OEM customer , using
    silver plated pins and braze material vs. the standard gold plated pins with an 80% gold
    braze material ... what was eventually discovered was that when in use , the silver actually
    migrated from one i/o pad to another and shorted everything out ... that one took some
    redesign to be able to prevent the migration ...
    what this points out , is that even after the yields get up to a decent level , there are some
    things that will only show up after so many hours of usage (more of a reliability thing , but
    far more damaging than in line yield issues )..
    later ... garce
