  • Partner Expansion, Competitor Financing Speculation, New Price Targets Make Energous Look Cheap [View article]
    Dallas Salazar: The system demoed at CES was not working - that is, it was not functional and did not charge any phone devices wirelessly. The phones were charged by the attached battery chargers, and the batteries were not charged wirelessly. The phones without chargers were discharging rapidly, as shown on the CES video. It was a hoax, and not a very elaborate one.

    TraderDrew25: I have seen no such list. Which specific predictions of mine have been inconsistent with the company's actions?

    If the company is not doomed to failure, why create an account and start posting yesterday?

    I do not consider commenting on articles a waste of time. Do you?

    But yes, Neonode is worth zero, and eventually it will converge to its fair value, regardless of articles and comments.

    Daniel Carlson: What was Neonode's share a year ago and what is it now?

    The cars.com article was written by a "web writer," whose previous experience is limited to being a Volunteer Teacher at Amazing Grace Preparatory School Kumasi, where he developed curriculum and taught English and Information and Communications Technology (computer basics) to 7th and 8th graders.

    Good luck!

    917: You are confused. In January, it became clear that Neonode would do a dilutive equity financing within a few weeks, never reaching breakeven, and I said so. This still stands - dilutive equity financing is imminent and the target is end of June or earlier and that is still within a few weeks from January, just as I said. Your assumption that quarterly revenue remains the same (or grows sequentially) is not supported by management disclosures.

    To answer your question: Neonode needs a dilutive equity offering or a toxic convert because it is running out of cash, as usual.

    Neonode's automotive adventure is already over. Has NN1001 even passed AEC-Q100 qualification tests? Infrared touch is inappropriate in the car, for obvious reasons (TPK has spelled them out). Buttons and knobs need no replacement (and cannot be replaced due to regulations), and capacitive has solved door safety for children many years ago (and capacitive door sensors are free!): http://bit.ly/1Bd5wzM

    TechViking: There was no promise - there was a condition. The link exists as TPK is a public company, but finding public information that proves that Neonode is a scam is surprisingly hard for some people.

    Aaron Faulkner: Cars still come with CD players - lets's all invest in the latest CD (Compact Disc) technology! CDs are outdated and obsolete, Neonode's tech is outdated and obsolete.

    If Neonode had patents on infrared touch, then anyone using infrared touch would have to pay, regardless whether Neonode developed the solution or not. What is the difference between Garmin's infrared touch and Neonode's infrared touch? Which is better? How much does it cost per inch?

    Zforce Air is ridiculous from an engineering viewpoint. It is virtually the same technology used in a TV remote (actually, much less sophisticated). When was it first announced? 2012? Which device is using it (other than the failed Kickstart case)?

    What high-volume models and what trend? According to Neonoode, there are over 3 billion touch-enabled devices sold each year. How many of them use Neonode's technology today?

    Aaron Faulkner: I am confused - why is Garmin not paying anything to Neonode for this infrared touch solution? Doesn't Neonode have patents and such?

    In other worlds, why would Autoliv, Harman, or whatever etc, pay anything to Neonode, except for a bit of enginneering service (which is unprofitable for Neonode)?

    You do realize that infrared touch is out of patent, outdated and obsolete technology, that is best suited for shooting balloons, right? http://bit.ly/17SrdfB

    TechViking: How do you get Neonode's technology in 2% of cars sold? Which cars other than Volvo XC90 are currently actually available for sale?

    Neonode entered the automotive segment in July 2010 by signing a license agreement with Daesung ( http://reut.rs/1dkvagM ), the leader in automotive electronics, which never generated any revenues, as far as I know.

    Aaron Faulkner: When was the Garmin GTC 570 infrared touch "controller" released and is it using Neonode's technology? An article says the thing was available in 2009 ( http://bit.ly/1BceHAn ), which clearly means that it does not have anything to do with Neonode.

    Neonode's technology, as pointed out numerous times, is obsolete and outdated. Neonode's solution is not 25c per diagonal inch, and the lowest-cost capacitive touch solution is not $1 per diagonal inch. Neonode's touch solution is more expensive than capacitive touch (specifically, embedded capacitive touch) and is inappropriate for virtually all computing devices, as evidenced by Neonode's market share.

    If "financial breakeven" occurs in Q1 2016, that would prove again that Neonode's management intentionally misled investors that the breakeven and profitability would occur in 2015.

    Dilutive equity financing is imminent (should happen by end of June, contrary to the CEO's promise last year that no financing would occur before breakeven is achieved). Stock is worth zero, of course.

    TechViking: If you are a believer, then you need no links. Volvo is a Chinese-owned failing auto maker.

    TechViking: So, if I provide the link, will you admit that Neonode is a scam and that Mr. Petter Hörling has no clue?

  • Key Takeaways From Neonode's Most Recent Quarter [View article]
    917: If Neonode did not have any licensing revenues from the automotive sector in 2014, then Volvo's Sensus Connected Touch, which uses Neonode's technology, was a complete failure. Volvo introduced it in 2013 and Neonode realized over $120,000 in related revenues 2013 (according to the 2013 Q3 10Q, see Pro Point). Desay must have also kicked Neonode out (Neonode had $97K receivable from Desay in Q4 2013).

    What is Neonode's market share? As explained numerous times already, just one capacitive touch module maker, TPK, with 10% overall market share, has over 100 car wins (including 3 with Volvo), and all auto OEMs are working on capacitive touch (according to Atmel). Infrared technology is obsolete and outdated (has less than 0.2% share now), and is not even considered a credible player in automotive by IHS.

    Dilutive financing is imminent (by the end of June). Neonode's stock is, of course, worth zero.

    Daniel Carlson: I would, after you answer these questions that arise from your promotional piece:

    1. In which quarter did Neonode's technology become cheaper but of equal (or better) performance compared to capacitive touch?

    2. What is Neonode's current market share and what was it a year ago?
