ZTE9 Network Technology (Wuxi) Co. plans to release the Fun Box console this month, Qin Yina, a spokeswoman for Shenzhen-based ZTE said in an e-mailed response to questions today. The Fun Box, powered by Nvidia Corp. (NVDA)’s Tegra 4 chip, will only be sold in China, Qin said.
The venture faces competition from makers including Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) in a video games market that consultant PricewaterhouseCoopers LLC estimates is the world’s third largest. In January, the government lifted the ban, intended to limit the effects of video games on young people, in the new Shanghai free-trade zone.
The cube-shaped ZTE9 Fun Box comes with 2 gigabytes of RAM, USB and micro-USB ports, dual antenna Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled game controllers, Qin said in the e-mail. Users can stream high-definition online videos through the box, in addition to video from connected USB devices, she said.
The venture is in talks with developers in China and overseas regarding titles for the console, Qin said.
Microsoft and BesTV New Media Co., a subsidiary of Shanghai Media Group, in September said they formed a $79 million gaming venture to take advantage of the new rules permitting consoles. Microsoft didn’t say whether the venture would offer its Xbox console or a new device. The business will deliver a new generation of innovative family entertainment, the Redmond, Washington-based company has said.
What do you expect when the kockamamie PR release says:
SUMMER 2014. Four months of lost sales AT least, as if
some gamers are anxiously awaiting this must have product.
Shows DR's expertise in managing anticipation.
Another fumble this time at the opponents 50 yard line.
Also I forgot to add:
"The biggest thing for sevens is making sure it grows in the way it should grow and people keep enjoying it," Lomu says.
"But the beauty is that it can only get better.
"When you've got 142 countries playing the game, that's awesome to see. And this is the next level."
You got that right 142 countries, now just sell 100 units in each one ( low in my opinion ) and gee wiz
we have revenue.
from BBC today:
(CNN) -- Many have matched his size, some his speed, but no-one ever combined the two to such devastating effect on a rugby field as Jonah Lomu.
The former All Blacks winger became the sport's first global superstar when he burst onto the international scene at the 1995 Rugby World Cup and now, almost two decades on, his appeal shows no sign of slowing down.
In his capacity as ambassador for the recent HSBC Sevens World Series tournament in Wellington, Lomu was given a hero's welcome at the New Zealand capital's Westpac Stadium.
Can KAREN convince DR to take advantage of this. Marketing, Marketing, Marketing. Yes students that is the word for today.
Well, DR has been peein on us for years telling us its only raining.
Are you trying to say that when the drectors get together they discuss nothing, no input? Success in any business starts with ideas, planting the seed that will bloom, just ask Chauncey Gardner. Or Whatsapp, Or coupon, Or any no revenue no profit outfit. I am sure Scott has some great ideas, some that will be realized some not. Just let us hope that DR does not through his hubris hold us back.
PS-- I dreamt that the potential is 20M + units, I wont say the stock price as it would make my conversation with Gabriel look silly. Still holding despite

SO invenotory shows available only for a very short window, and they sell

Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC) is causing increasing concern and a rising number of cases.
Some 1,241 patients were affected within the Central Manchester University Hospitals trust area from 2009 to 2013, the figures show.
Despite infection control, the numbers have increased year on year
From BBC news, could be opportunity-who knows.

They have no cash , which is bad.
Secondary coming , real soon in my opinion.
I will be out real soon, even though I saw their potential
4 years ago. Its been a good ride, lately , and GLTA longs.
You missed but one negative.
My hope is that they can move forward despite him.
I feel Karen and Scott may just hold the life preserver, and let's all hope they prevail.

Those are the CA subsidies for every car for the carbon credits.
Now, if one were to remove those taxpayers politically motivated
