    multicast chips

    Hey jazz, multicast enduser support has arrived. the current Insignia LTE tablet, it just needs for the pipe Verizon to broadcast.
    with 3GPP release 9 specifications. It delivers category 4 throughput of up to 150 Mbps and supports eMBMS (LTE broadcast) and other advanced features. The VZ20M module includes all elements necessary for a complete LTE modem system.

    If you recall the demo at SuperBowl, VZ had 2 tablets, a Sequans and along side a Samsung---the Sequans tablet was running multicast sessions and the Samsung was not.
    For some reason(and we know why), Insignia is not pushing the Multicast part.. Either VZ is not ready(I doubt it), or is waiting for Sammy/QCOM to catch up...

    Saying that, take a close look at Sequans tablet in the SuperBowl demo, then look at the Insignia.....Other than the trademark labels, physically both tablets are identical....Now comes the heavy lifting, Marketing and getting VZ to break away from the gorillas and lend a helping hand to the small potato.

    That multicast feature is the ticket--hope VZ turns it on real soon, at least in stadiums for sports/concerts events. Afterall, eMMBS is merely a signal--it could be applied to landlines(routers M2M)..
    wake up sequans, get AT&T,T-Mo,Sprint approved quickly before the gorillas stop you again....

  • back in 1997 when he took over Apple (AAPL) which we know now was days away from bankruptcy.
    this is Jobs speaking:
    I called up Bill and said, “I’m going to turn this thing around.” Bill always had a soft spot for Apple. We got him into the application software business. The first Microsoft apps were Excel and Word for the Mac. So I called him and said, “I need help.” Microsoft was walking over Apple’s patents. I said, “If we kept up our lawsuits, a few years from now we could win a billion-dollar patent suit. You know it, and I know it. But Apple’s not going to survive that long if we’re at war. I know that. So let’s figure out how to settle this right away. All I need is a commitment that Microsoft will keep developing for the Mac and an investment by Microsoft in Apple so it has a stake in our success.

    Sorry boys and gals,GTAT didn't have the guts and glory it takes to survive as Apple did back in 1997.

    They are probably already crating up the boules and ship them to a facility awaiting in China.

    2 things;
    Sapphire making requires tons of gallons of water. Mesa,AZ sits in the middle of a desert.
    Sapphire making reuires tons of KiloWatts. Mesa,AZ infrastructure can't supply it.
    Intel has lots of Semi palnts in AZ and they have priority to grab the KiloWatts.
    Farmers/Poultry-Veggies have priority to whatever H2O AZ can spare.

    APS power outage; 2,000 customers in west valley affected, including PIR
    It's called racing under the lights for a reason but tonight, for more than an hour, there was no racing at Phoenix International Raceway.
    The lights went out and portions of the track went pitch black all because of a large power outage striking the west valley.
    It left fans and drivers completely in the dark.
    FOX 10's Jessica Flores has this report from the track.

  • On October 31, 2013, GTAT Corporation (“GTAT”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of GT Advanced Technologies Inc., and Apple Inc. (“Apple”) entered into a Master Development and Supply Agreement and related Statement of Work (the “MDSA”), pursuant to which GTAT will supply sapphire material exclusively to Apple for consumer electronics. GTAT has granted Apple certain intellectual property rights in connection with its sapphire growth technologies .

    On October 31, 2013, GTAT also entered into a Prepayment Agreement with Apple pursuant to which GTAT will receive approximately $578 million (the “Prepayment Amount”), in four separate installments, as payment in advance for the purchase of sapphire goods. GTAT is required to repay this amount ratably over a five year period ending in January 2020, either as a credit against Apple’s purchases of sapphire goods under the MDSA or as a direct cash payment. GTAT’s obligation to repay the Prepayment Amount may be accelerated under certain circumstances. GTAT’s obligations under the Prepayment Agreement are secured by certain of its assets. While the MDSA specifies GTAT’s minimum and maximum supply commitments, there are no minimum purchase requirements under the terms of the MDSA.

    Finally, on October 31, 2013, GTAT entered into a lease agreement (the “Lease Agreement”) with an affiliate of Apple in order to lease a facility in Mesa, Arizona that GTAT will use for the purpose of manufacturing the sapphire goods under the MDSA.

    drunkenmasterfoo is suggesting to WFM(if they are reading this board) to make an investment in Eberly's and resurrect the Eberly farm and processing plant. WFM is known for investing in local farms and harvest plants.
    I am in the west coast ans I read further about Eberly's and they come across as the real McCoy. I'd say it would be worth it for WFM to send in the scouts.

    Barclays is the Designated Market Maker (DMM) for the company’s stock.
    Probably one of the have to understand the nyse stocks have one dmm assigned to them, while in the Nasdaq each stock have multiple Market Makers....
    Yume mngmnt do not understand the inner workings of a DMM(NYSE) vs Multiple MM(Nasdaq)...
    i.e.Yume has way better revs and tinyer losses them MKTO, well just compare the price multiples of the stocks....
    MRKT trades in the Nasdaq

    now compare the CEO's and notice the differencies....
    Jayant--well, is a Hardware Engineer. DSL equipment and service provider for ISP’s and carriers.
    technical and marketing positions in AMD’s networks division, and AT&T Bell Labs, where he worked on high-speed LAN systems, hardware and DSL technologies.

    Phil--is a well-known writer and speaker on topics related to digital marketing, marketing automation, big data, and entrepreneurialism, and is the author of Revenue Disruption (Wiley, 2012), which delivers bold new strategies for any company to transform its sales and marketing to accelerate revenue growth.
    was President and COO of Epiphany, Earlier, he was COO at Red Brick Systems, held leadership positions at Metaphor Computer Systems, Stanford University Medical Center, and Masstor Systems

    I think yume will continue to grow it's revs sequentially higher and probably will be profitable way sooner then it's comps, but doesn't have the suave to command a higher price multiple....
    A lot of it has to do how the CEO and CFO rock the Investors Markets cradle...

  • The skis and helmet he was wearing were reported to be rented, however, and are in the possession of the police, who are examining them for defects.

  • "The helmet does a very good job at protecting against skull lacerations and skull fractures, but it doesn't seem to have much effect on concussions or traumatic brain injuries"

  • according to Jasper Shealy, professor emeritus at Rochester Institute of Technology, helmets do not prevent injuries such as the tearing of brain tissue. Shealy has been studying snow-related injuries in Vermont for 30 years, and says that helmets might not be able to protect the wearer against what he termed ‘rotational’ injuries. His research, he added, has failed to register a decline in head injuries as a result of helmet use. He concluded: “The helmet does a very good job at protecting against skull lacerations and skull fractures, but it doesn’t seem to have much effect on concussions or traumatic brain injuries. Our guess is that this is due to the fact that those injuries are occurring at such a magnitude of energy that they overwhelm what a helmet can do for you.” A review of 16 studies on ski and snowboarding injuries was recently carried out by the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma in the US, in which the unanimous conclusion of the authors was that helmets save lives. Dr Adil H. Haider, trauma surgeon and professor of surgery at Johns Hopkins University, said: “They (helmets) protect against serious, even fatal head injuries. There really is a great case to be made for wearing helmets. By increasing awareness and giving people scientific proof, we hope behaviour changes will follow.”

    One thing for sure though, hide away the yahoo checkbook from BOD, MM and Goldman before they cause more grieve to yhoo shareholders and
    Take the remaining BABA shares in yahoo possession and distribute them to existing yhoo shareholders. immediately.
    hint: baba is way more valuable than yhoo

  • Yahoo sold half its stake in September 2012 for $7.1 billion before tax, or $13 a share. (Alibaba would close at $94 exactly two years later.)
