    Yet Another Apple Speculation

    Are you pretending to be dumb ?
    Quite successfully. I might say.
    I think there is possible partnership between Apple and eMagin and as part of that partnership Apple needs engineers that would complement eMagin team.

    Yet Another Apple Speculation

    Well, if Apple is just buying OLED screens from LG for their watches why do they need engineers to :
    "• Establish validation procedures to determine acceptance of tooling into development builds as well as mass production. "
    and
    "• Escalate/Lead progress of development activities at supplier on site and serve as point of escalation for critical process related issues. Assign follow up action items, as needed, to drive ongoing improvements to process capability. "
    and
    "• Manage supplier yield in depth of level from glass input to final assembly with strong driving force based on display manufacturing process knowledge and experience. "

    I mean, LG is a big manufacturer ( probably as big as Apple) with its own set of procedures and controls. Would Apple need to interfere there on a technical level if something is not going well ?

    You're quite good with options as I follow the posts here.
    Maybe you can make up some indicator that weighs in option prices. After all, the usual problem with all TA is that it looks back , so you can compensate it with options information that is a sentiment into future prices.

    KOPN news

    Yeah, what's up with KOPN volume ?

  • surrealskiller surrealskiller 21 hours ago Flag

    Not Always, just occasionally.
    There was a drop to 1.86 in October 2014 that lasted like a day and then bounced back .

  • surrealskiller surrealskiller 21 hours ago Flag

    I had assignments in the wrong day of the month ( well that was with Intel and it was because of dividend but nevertheless it may happen).
    I cannot make the sense of volume - 114,566 shares traded in pre-market.
    If someone wanted to manipulate it then 300 shares spread over 6-8 trades would do the trick.
    It seemed like a fire sale when someone had been forced to close position (margin call ?)
    Why sell at 2.50 if you can wait for few minutes and sell at 3.00 ?
    If you'd be a short , you'd want to do it during market hours to trigger Stop Loss orders.

  • Most of the trades in premarket were at 2.50 price.
    Whenever I sell contracts and they have been exercised it usually happened in strange hours like 6am.

    appstore

    These supposed to be AR specific apps.
    "any android app" won't help - you want to have specific apps so that you could gain advantage and it would justify money spent on hardware. And you probably don't want to have anything from Google Play as those apps are riddled with ads. Google wouldn't mind though to literally shovel those ads into your eye.

    The super secret slide presentation mentioned that appstore was launched i December 2014 and strangely enough I couldn't find link to it on Vuzix web site.
    Then I gave it a thought and put appstoreDOTvizixDOTcom in the browser and here it was.
    As I understand the Appstore Client for m!00 is still in development - the support page on Vuzix site is still showing it as "coming soon" but you can take a peak on what apps are available.
    I cannot say i was overwhelmed but it's a start. Most are kind of demos - e.g. "EON AR Vibrator Truck" but there is your lovely Junaio Mirage developed by Metaio and barcode scanner developed by Honeywell.
    My bet you can even download them onto your android device after you register and login.
    If someone would develop a golf app (measure the distance using camera, pull wind speed and directions from weather sites , combine together into an "recommended angle arrow" ) that would help sell those glasses quick.

    Interesting.
    I use standard RSi and SlowStoch indicators , don't remember who recommended them. But I usually don't take them as absolute values , I rather use them in the comparison with themselves few months back . E.g. if previous major dip had RSI =35 and then it reversed so that's the "oversold" level for the stock, don't expect it to go to 15. Somewhat similar to yours approach I guess but not formalized.
    I used to add Money Flow indicator which is RSI weighted by volume and I thought it makes more sense but I found it correlates too much with RSI anyway .
    And of course, some stocks trade well with those indicators (e.g. IBM, BA) and some don't (e.g. OLED) . I think it has something to do with implied volatility - when IV is high then stock price is less likely follow technicals.
    And then there are just some strong patterns (e.g. "flag" ) that quite often resulted from some news released. News usually trumps the technicals
    Just some ideas for your models .

    scammy made some money in EMAN too.
    A nickel per post , I guess. Probably less because posts have no effect.

    Why would Apple acquire software company if they don't have hardware for it ?
    Their software is mostly AR - cardboards and dive mask won't work
    Look for Junaio in app store /google play and see the screenshots of what is their browser supposed to do.

    Cool Glass will be M100 killer

    surrealskiller surrealskiller May 28, 2015 10:27 PM Flag

    My Dear Tank,
    Vuzix got money from Intel to save them from oblivion. It's not 'a seal of approval' . Intel will get their money back one way or another.
    I am not sure what is your definition of success but EMAN just returned to profitability.
    Can you tell how many m100 were produced or sold ? I cannot get those numbers from 10-Q. From Amazon web site it looks like 2 in last 3 months. That's retail front end and probably should not be counted. Maybe numbers from partners are better .
    Chinese just announced a cheaper version of Google Glass with faster recharge time. They are not targeting m100, they are riding GG hype wave and taking opportunity of the vacuum created by Google exiting their GG Explorer program and not announcing replacement yet. But in the process they are going to kill m100 as well as Epson smart glasses and others.
    If I sound inconsistent here that's because I have too many doubts to invest in Vuzix and I spill them here and see if people can prove me wrong. Some of the posters here do actually provide good input to think about. i consider message board as a discussion place, not a cheerleader competition or Investor Anonymous support. I am a very patient investor and if I missed an opportunity to get in early it doesn't mean I cannot get later if it's worth it.

    Yeah, new board readers , please go back up to that message by Acy that stated that 'emanscam and garce are actually the same poster'. Emanscam never disproved it , btw.
    Then try to reread all messages again and keep your sanity.
    Or you can try read all messages backward . Or try to put them into Goolge translate and read them through cardboard VR glasses - left in English, right in Icelandic .
    it works wonders, me and myself both find it very helpful albeit from different perspectives.
