    Hmmm, I no longer can see Atomic's posts on this board. Not sure how that happened but it's a good thing. Judging from today's stock price retreat...I guess there weren't many people other than Atomic that were impressed by TD's presentation yesterday.

    HEVC roughly doubles the compression ratio of h.264, enabling it to deliver similar video quality at around half the file size (or higher quality and resolution at the same file size). It’s going to become increasingly important to both big companies and consumers as 4K content becomes more prevalent—streaming providers like Netflix and Amazon will be able to provide higher-resolution streams without quadrupling their costs, and people with new 4K-capable phones will be able to shoot high-resolution video without eating up all their storage. HEVC also supports 8K video, laying the groundwork for even higher-resolution video in the future.

    HEIF is just as interesting, and if anything it will make a bigger difference to normal people. That’s because HEIF is not only capable of reducing the file size and increasing the quality of still images, but it can blur the lines between photos and video. It’s a JPEG and a GIF replacement all in one.

    Apple releases new Mac Sierra operating system today.
    It has HEVC. The new standard for video according to Apple.
    With the rising popularity of 4K video, a new industry standard arrives on Mac — HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding, also known as H.265).1 It can compress video up to 40 percent more than H.264, the current standard for video compression. Using HEVC, videos stream better and take up less space on your Mac, while preserving the same visual quality.2

    Those of you that keep hoping for insider buying, give up and sell your stock if that what you are waiting for. Senior management has way to many free be stock options to do that. It will never happen. In fact, as you all know, the CFO has a sell program in place.

    Asustek to launch next-generation ZenFone 5 in March 2018
    Monica Chen, Rome; Steve Shen, DIGITIMES [Friday 22 September 2017]
    Asustek Computer will release its next-generation ZenFone 5 family products at the earliest in March 2018 as the operations of its smartphone business have returned to a growth truck as a result of recent restructuring, according to company CEO Jerry Shen.

    Shen is currently leading a trade mission to promote the company's ZenFone 4 in Europe.

    Sales of Asustek's ZenFone 3 devices have been gaining momentum in France, Italy, Spain and Russia, and the sales momentum is expected to continue on ZenFone 4 products as the company is expanding its cooperation with telecom operators in the region, Shen added.

    Thanks to improving operating efficiency and rising ASP of ZenFone 4, Asustek's smartphone business is expected to swing back to profitability in the fourth quarter of 2017, Shen said, adding that by the third quarter of 2018 Asustek is likely to be one of the profitable seven smartphone vendors globally, Shen stressed.

    Meanwhile, Shen said that HTC's decision to sell its Pixel team to Google will not have a significant impact on Asustek's smartphone business as Asustek and Google have been cooperating closely and Google's Pixel smartphones are targeting the high-end segment compared to Asustek's focus on the entry-level to mid-tier sector.
