    I like ihub because they control bad posters. But the format is not as easy as Yahoo's boards. And you're right, tumble weeds... More so with microcaps then major companies. Same thing with Morningstar. But, if I can get one or two posters there to post here it will add to our conversation. Have to admit, activity here has picked up since Feb when a few of us from Glu came looking. Getting more postings will help develop strategies, opinions, and even add to the facts list.

    Nice pop this morning. Have to admit this is the most activity ALSO has seen in a long time. Just hope its movement catches the eye of other investors.

    c'mon you mutha, run!

    Thanks Blu. I still haven't gotten any more than the auto.

    I've been thinking about ALSO and its product, and Meta and its product. Very similar. What if ALSO would rather close shop and its 6 remaining staff members head to Meta?

    Stock, have been looking online for more info on Kanye and Glu. There is nothing stating they have teamed up. Kanye has been working on this game about heaven and mom for over 6 months. Reporters have asked Glu but have not heard back. Kanye does have a game called, "Kanye Zone." It was created by Otter Spice Production in 2012. So, it may be possible Glu will develop a game. If Kanye can make money for Glu then I'm all for it. It cost money to create and market a game. But, if this is more a niche market, let Otter have it.

    I understand fully what you're getting at. In short, "keep it in the family." I just don't see a large scale audience wanting to send Kanye's mom to heaven, or for Kanye in the music business. Oddly, I could see a game for Suge Knight. or the like. I don't know "who" Glu would target or how large that target would be. I don't think de Masi would object if Bruce Jenner signed with someone else. Kim and her sisters are hot. They have a huge following from preteens to mid 30's. Their brother has a very small following. Maybe you're right and de Masi will do something for Kanye only because of Kim. But I think it will be as popular as Zynga's "Draw Something." Yes, I could be wrong.

    "Thug fans..." (hee hee hee...)

    I'm not sure but I thought Kanye may have already inked a deal with another game developer. And I don't think it's likely de Masi will allow Kanye to dictate the game. Glu's portfolio of games is strong. The games that were mistakes have been eliminated. If de Masi and crew don't see the money they wont do it. Perhaps they'll create a came around him. One that will make money. But now my thinking is back to "thugs." What fan base will they be targeting? I don't see Kanye as an asset to Glu. Plus, Glu needs to get moving on a sports game. If they did take Kanye on his game would be released in late 2016 or sometime in 2017. Don't see Kanye with that kind of patience.

    Mark, have been looking over Meta's site a little more. These people seem to be way ahead of ALSO. They have headsets and are offering up development kits to developers. Maybe your question should be, did Meta invest in ALSO? I will say it would be interesting if the two merged.

    Just got an auto response from Meta. They hope to respond within one or two days. Guess that gives them a leg up on ALSO. Wrote ALSO and never heard back. Not even an auto.

    Good question, Markstrong. I went to Meta's site, took a look around and contacted them. I asked if ALSO made an investment with them. If I hear back I'll let you know.

    I would think "pre-teen" to late teens. Several of my neighbors have girls 10 and/or 11. They are all focused on Jenner and her modeling. Also a few friends who teach middle school. During lunch break, before and after classes talk of Kim and her sisters. Even the book covers and notebooks are of the sisters. Pre-teen is a very big market.

    (Third time trying to post this.)

    First, I mentioned I was thinking of picking up a few more shares, and if I did the price would drop. Well, I didn't buy those shares. ALSO is moving up and down without any help from me.

    ALSO saw a nice pop after Friday's article. I'm wondering if any of you took a little profit off the table. I'm also wondering now that the price is coming back down if you'll pick up some more for the next pop up. I'm still planning to pick up those 2K shares I mentioned. Until ALSO is a privately held company, if that will even happen, I plan to keep on trading it.

    Just a side note, after 15 years EA is dropping Tiger Woods and replacing him with Rory McIlroy. Certainly hope Glu moves on their sports game.

    Blu, Andnow4me posted the info under "New Article for ALSO."

  • point-taken@att.net by point-taken Mar 16, 2015 10:28 AM Flag

    You may want to read this article. It paints a completely different picture.

    http://www.hotstocked.com/article/89539/infinity-augmented-reality-inc-otcmkts-also.html

    It closes with a comment of ALSO going private.

    A little OT from Himax. I've been following Infinity Augmented Reality Inc (OTCMKTS:ALSO). Have watched it slide from 30 cents to 5 cents. Lately interest has been growing with it. They've developed a simple cost effective approach to AR. The cameras are off the shelf and the headset uses little energy. And as I mentioned, interest is growing. Friday ALSO popped up nearly 50%. If any of you have time I'd like to get a little feedback on it. Someone posted on the ALSO board a recent article that was quite favorable. Thanks.

    And, with out a doubt, HIMX is in the right place at the right time. 2015 is for AR/VR. We will see many good things happen with HIMX this year.

    Well, that is what I've been thinking regarding posting on their FB page. It might get someone to respond. I did go to their website and clicked on Investor Relations. There I used the "contact" and sent a question about the split. It's been two weeks and no reply. (Of course, they may have been focused on getting ready for the London Show. So, who knows...)

  • point-taken@att.net point-taken Mar 15, 2015 4:44 PM Flag

    Whoa, that's some write up. Money in the bank. Very little debt. What's not to like. I guess I'll pick up a few more shares. Of course, once I do it will drop back to 0.05. Looks like Bluhorseshu and Andnow4me have made some money based on timing. Congrats!

  • point-taken@att.net by point-taken Mar 14, 2015 12:37 PM Flag

    As you may have already guessed ALSO has a Facebook page. I took a look. It doesn't have an "active" board, but they do show product and recent headlines. (Most recent is the link Bluhorseshu posted) I clicked on "Newsletter." Nothing there yet. Hopefully ALSO will start producing one. Could not find any info regarding "reverse/forward split." My thinking, we should all "friend" ALSO and start a conversation on their FB page. If nothing else, check them out.

    This is pure speculation

    Glad you share the same speculation. And even if a buyout price came in at $2.00/$2.30 it would still be a tidy sum.
