Interviewed on ABC news last week. Revealed he was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma on his nose. Not the most serious of skin cancers, but still enough to get your attention. Has since become an advocate of skin cancer awareness as related to uv from exposure to sunlight. Targeting children for education of this growing problem.
After numerous delays, looks like Sea Glass carousel will open on Memorial Day. Finally starting to see the flexibility of spd technology.
By the way, Hugh Jackman, another potential marketing celeb to add to the list. An Australian, American and European connection.
Honestly Lester, to anticipate anything with this company or spd product launches is an exercise in foolhardiness. Both long and shorts that have been around here long enough know what I'm speaking about. Take today's cc, anyone that thinks they will learn anything by asking questions will get the "optimistic inside out" answer from Joe. Heck, it's nothing but a joke now. And anyone that might invest in this company should take that approach. And my theory about the e class is just that........an exercise in foolhardiness.
Tenor, be careful with that logic, will get the hardliners up in arms. Just by looking at the current numbers on the surface, when s class sedan kicks in, could in reality be profitable. However, I believe the e class with side spd windows included could be the true turning point for this company. No doubt we need the additional oems, but the e class could really turn their heads and move them into action.
Aw c'mon Lester, surely if you can wait one year, six years isn't that much longer. As Joe says that's "soon".
Oh, by the way, we're all "new" here.

Sorry, for the late response, been away. You are correct if your trading timeframe is a week.
Have to agree with NDixon on the likelihood of BMW, just don't know if it will be 6 months or 6 years. Either way for Joe that timespan means.............. "soon".
"you can be sure that it would not be beneficial to shareholders"
Don't consider the majority of those shorted shares to be "legitimate shorts". But either way, they're using the opportunity that a dysfunctional management team has given them over an over throughout the history of this company. The price fluctuations really have no bearing on my outlook at this time. Filter out the noise from the cheerleading from both sides. Two things to watch:
Total cash and non-cash compensation
Total revenues per PR
One thing I would like to see (although I'm not a fan of the profession) is the longtime, "outside" shareholders retaining a panel of their own, of attorneys ready to react in response to those shareholder concerns that are not in line with management or a gutless BOD.
From what you have reported, I agree. From your experience is there a point in the process when you use common sense over ego and say, "hey, maybe we better find a way to settle this" ? I know I over simplified that concept, but is there a turning point in a majority of the cases? How often do the "legal" heads admit its time to settle?
with no knowledge of how the scale is tipping. But if my company was in litigation on some matter and the odds were not in my favor for a positive settlement; wouldn't it be in my company's best interest to accumulate as many shares possible of the company in which I would be settling with, knowing the future of that company and the odds on favorite for a price jump when such settlement is announced?
Yeah, well, not the first time and won't be the last. And I'm glad you're ok with that. Unless fundamental investing has changed, then I'm happy with my assessment.
Shareholders could care less about the shorts. They have always been here and will always be here into the future. Shareholders are focusing on contracts, revenues and earnings. That is what affects the sp in the long run. RFI managemet would love to have nothing more than long/short term investors or traders worry about the shorts, shifting focus away from the lack of revenues.
I enjoy humor in advertising so I'm debating whether I would like to see MMc chauffeuring Bruce because he loves driving a Lincoln so much and volunteered for the job or having the boss be an unknown chauffer watching MMc playing with all the gadgets in the back seat. Bruce tells MMc to tint the roof because the sun's uv rays are bad for the skin. And then "Born in the USA" comes on the radio and Bruce says he loves that song. As they arrive, Bruce throws off his chauffer#$%$ and coat and enters into a raucous crowd in jeans and t-shirt. Both going up to the terrace and the glass roof featuring a light show is applauded by all.
Well lets see, we have Mathew McConaughey endorsing Lincoln. We have numerous licensees advocating the benefits of spd glass and the protective quality of skin. We have an American icon that is an advocate of skin cancer awareness. We have the largest spd glass roof in the world being exhibited at a world event in less than a month. Wouldn't it be "smart" for the friends of the USA Pavilion in Milan 2015 to team up with Lincoln and the American Cancer Society, and have Mathew McConaughey and Brue Sprinsteen "the boss" seen arriving in the back of a Lincoln Continental adjusting an spd roof because of the sunlight, listening to "Born in the USA", to dedicate the opening of the U.S. pavilion? It doesn't get much better than that.
James Biber: "The key concept is therefore one of reuse: the digital glass roof will be resold by its manufacturer for another building."
"Unlike many of the other pavilions, we did not opt for a green roof, choosing instead a “digital” glass roof which turns dark blue or transparent on command. *This is not simply a shading system* and its 300 panels can be individually regulated as if they were giant pixels on a screen."
