Dirty deeds, done dirt cheap:
Market makers make you weep,
playing games, now ~ every day,
Naked shorting ~ all the way!
Never saw a handsome one;
Rarely see them ~ when the Sun's
shining brighty ~ they stay in,
lurking darkly in their dens
of avarice and wickedness,
plotting ways to stall success
they all know's inevitable,
what they do's ~ incredible,
yet allowed by SEC..
This behavour is to me
theft, by law, of our gains:
Market makers are a pain!
When they dine ~ it's 'steak tartar',
when they sleep ~ their caskets
lined with shares of all our stocks,
they destroyed and never bought
Type mesVeschi is the CEO of Rockstar, an intellectual property licensing company created by a consortium of hi-tech companies that won the bidding war for Nortel's patents in 2011.
On Oct. 31, the two-year-old company filed lawsuits against global tech giants, including Google, Samsung and Huawei. The suits allege they use technology developed and patented by Canada's one-time tech darling Nortel, but refuse to pay licensing fees.
Rockstar has the rights to Nortel's legacy, as it owns 4,000 patents developed in Nortel labs. Rockstar's main goal is to use those patents to make money for its owners: Apple, Microsoft, Blackberry, Sony and Ericsson.
Veschi is proud of what he does now, but it's not the dream he had when he worked for Nortel.
"My hope was to build a business like this and be part of the turnaround for Nortel," said Veschi, whose job was to make Nortel money by licensing the technology in its patents.
There was a lot to draw from.
'Critics allege this is a real problem.... It's gumming up the innovation system and it frustrates other companies and stifles innovation and productivity as a whole.'- Jeremy DeBeer, University of Ottawa law professor.

Sentiment: Strong Buy
Over the past two decades, VoIP has revolutionised the way people communicate and has become a mainframe technology that is here to stay. Considerable cost savings that VoIP offers to both residential as well as enterprise users as compared to traditional PSTN telephony is the key market driver. VoIP adoption is rapidly growing in the enterprise space with companies realizing that efficiencies could be gained through the simplified management of a single voice & data network.
In 2013, Visiongain believes that VoIP is poised for growth, underpinned by the widespread adoption of integrated social media based VoIP solutions and the rise of market leaders in the VoIP space such as Skype. The deployment of LTE and 4G networks will transform the quality of VoIP services and propel VoIP into mainstream mobile telecommunication services creating a paradigm shift in subscriber behaviour.
As a consequence, Visiongain expects global VoIP revenues to reach $75.8bn in 2013.

I DONT CARE WHO THE HACKERS WERE AS LO NG AS WE BE REIMBURSED BY THE GOVERMENT OR THE UNITED NATIONS
Raleigh, N.C. — A former Nortel security adviser says he spent years trying to track down hackers who had infiltrated the company, one of Research Triangle Park’s largest employers at the time. He even asked his bosses to bring in the FBI, he says, but his warnings weren’t taken seriously enough.
Now, Brian Shields is using what he learned from Nortel’s 2004 hacking and eventual demise to warn others about how easily secrets can be stolen. He often speaks to security groups and has appeared on CNBC, the BBC and other international media outlets.
“Hackers are what brought Nortel down,” he said. “It ought to be very scary to every company in this country that has any concern over the info they have in their networks.”
Nortel’s hackers were discovered in 2004 when an employee noticed what looked like an executive trying to download his documents. As it turned out, the hackers had stolen seven executive passwords and had been deep in the system for an unknown period of time.
“It all looked legit, and you would not have suspected that anything was wrong,” Shields said. “We spent a lot of time trying to figure out how our CEO’s account and a senior vice president’s account were compromised, and we couldn’t figure it out.”
What he does know is that one security lapse caused Nortel, a telecommunications giant with about 9,000 employees, to collapse. Shields says he suspects the hackers were Chinese because a Chinese competitor suddenly started offering cheaper products and services that erased Nortel's income.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that this was going to Chinese competitors, because all of the sudden they are on the market and winning everything

Workers preparing the former Nortel complex as the new home for the Department of National Defence have discovered electronic eavesdropping devices, prompting new fears about the security of the facility.
It’s not clear whether the devices were recently planted or left over from an industrial espionage operation when Nortel occupied the complex.
Asked for details about the listening devices and whether they were still functioning, the DND responded with a statement to the Citizen that it takes security at its installations seriously.
“The Department of National Defence and Canadian Armed Forces cannot provide any information regarding specific measures and tests undertaken to secure a location or facility for reasons of national security,” noted an email from DND spokeswoman Carole Brown. “The DND/CAF must maintain a safe and secure environment at all of its facilities, in order to maintain Canada’s security posture at home and abroad.”
Recently released DND documents, however, indicate that concerns about the security surrounding the former Nortel campus at 3500 Carling Ave. were raised last year.

Tender for 2.5 mn Mobile Lines Bharat Sanchar Nigam plans to float a tender for 2.5 mn new CDMA 1xEV-DO mobile lines to replace its cancelled order for a million lines. After the agreement with China's Huawei Technologies for supplying 1 mn lines failed BSNL has come up with this new tender. BSNL has already scrapped its agreement with Huawei due to delays in the delivery of equipment. Lucent, Nortel, Motorola, Ericsson and ZTE are expected to bid in conjunction with local partners. BSNL has said that the bidder must have the experience of supplying a minimum one million lines of CDMA equipment, including mobile switching centers, base stations and core network technology.

BIAL has IP PBX-Siemens HiPath for captive consumption and Nortel IP PBX to meet the stakeholders' needs. We have opted for and implemented IP convergence and have the base set for triple play. Currently, it is IP voice and data. As soon as IPTV is launched, we have plans to introduce the triple play services. BIAL will implement UCM in the coming financial year. As of today, we have MSIM implemented, and with Nortel IP PBX and Microsoft handshake on UCM, we could easily implement the same very effectively for stakeholders. - See more at: google
