  • Uni-Pixel Finally Completes Its 'Go To Market' Strategy [View article]
    Nomo123: XSense was dead for a year before it was "shut down" by Atmel - there have been no revenues in the past 12 months and the losses were about $20 million.

    stampcollect15: It MAY reduce accuracy for 3M's sensors. Have you used any devices with 3M touch sensors recently?

    LindonT: Do you know why the coating line in Colorado was never commissioned ( that is, the equipment is there, but has not been calibrated and is not functional)? And why is Carclo still using 0.3-meter-wide film - I thought they were supposed to move to 0.5 meter last year?

    Buysider2: Of course it could. The two investors who bought the convert are short enough UNXL stock right (they are hedged - it is called convertible arbitrage), and they don't care whether UNXL goes bankrupt in 2016 or this year. You should really talk to some financial advisor... Hawthorne likes to get paid for telling fairy tales from California.

    Buysider2: Reed Killion was not fired. The 8-K states that he resigned to pursue other interests (namely become a CEO of Cool Materials, Inc.). Are you saying that the Board lied in the 8-K?

    Hawthorne misled investors about touch sensor costs and Uni-Pixel's competitiveness, about the yield progress, about InTouch and Diamond Guards advantages, about the achievement of fully-functional roll-to-roll pilot production, about the touchless breaktrough, about the AIO PC OEM being interested in 23-inch sensors, about the reason for the customer rejecting the 7-inch sensor, and so on and so on. And Hawthorne made some forecasts which he knew would not come to pass.

    Buysider2: Nope, I implied that Uni-Pixel's former CEO, with the approval of the Board of Directors, lied to investors, and the SEC is investigating. Two of those Directors - Yankowski and Marren - filed an inaccurate 10K for fiscal 2013, which the SEC forced to be revised and an amended 10K/A was filed. Jeff Hawthorne was hired by the same Directors to continue the nice work. In my recent article I have provided more than enough evidence that he has done a good job.

    You don't like the shorts? So, you don't like the two investors who bought the convert?

    Small/mid cap growth guy: Nope, it is obvious you don't know how it works. Once you hire a qualified investment advisor, he will probably explain to you that 9% interest on the convert plus warrants combined with proper hedging (shorting the common plus some other more tricky stuff) and the $6 million in restricted cash make this a potentially very profitable position, regardless of whether Uni-Pixel files for bankruptcy protection this year or in 2016. You should hire such an advsor promptly!

    The point of the warrants is that they are free - you get a cheap volatility "asset," that you can hedge by "selling" an expensive volatility "asset." Again, a qualified investment advisor!

    Aaron Faulkner: Neonode is a corporation. Amazon is another non-affiliated corporation or a river. Therefore, Neonode is not in Amazon. Clear?

  • Are Neonode And Harman Teaming Up For A $900 Million GM Deal? [View article]
    stampcollect15: Capacitive (yes, even procap) works with gloves. Here is a demo from year 2012: http://bit.ly/1EeKLtY . Neonode's infrared tech is as imprecise as it was in 1983. Neonode is shrinking and running of out cash. NEON is not in HP. Neonode is not in Amazon. An equity raise (or a toxic convert) is coming by the end of June, within few weeks of January, just as I said. You did not get the memo?

  • Are Neonode And Harman Teaming Up For A $900 Million GM Deal? [View article]
    nysplit: The article from April 10 is current, but it doesn't say anything about Harman. Sorry.

    And Petter Horling is lying. On the picture in the article I see 1,2,3,4,5,6,8 buttons just below the screen. Why are those there?

    The article from December 2014 is also current. It does not say anything about Harman either. It talks about Continental's infrared technology, which proves that infrared technology is free and out of patent, because Continental is not a Neonode customer (and doesn't need to be, obviously).

  • Uni-Pixel Finally Completes Its 'Go To Market' Strategy [View article]
    tommyboy1: Same company. Hawthorne said commercial InTouch sensor revenues will come in Q4 2014. No such revenues materialized. Then Hawthorne said commercial InTouch sensor revenues will come in Q2 2015 (this quarter). No such revenues will materialize (read my recent article to find out why, if the ATML deal is not convincing enough for you).

    How much money was invested to crush Uni-Pixel's technology? That technology requires no crushing, as Uni-Pixel has not been able to produce and sell even one commercial sensor since the CTO, Petcavich, declared that the company had achieved fully-functional roll-to-roll pilot production in 2011, and then again, in June 2014 when Hawthorne did the same. And, don't forget - touch sensors are now free. I guess you blame the display manufacturers who offer cheap touchscreens with free embedded touch sensors.

    And why oh why is the SEC still investigating this scam?

  • UniPixel up 11.9% on deal to buy Atmel's XSense touch sensor assets [View news story]
    tommyboy1: It is an incredible deal for ATML - it receives cash in exchange for getting rid of a worthless asset saddled with liabilities. It is a horrible deal for UNXL, as it accelerates the upcoming bankruptcy by at least a few months. I know exactly how this is played out - Chapter 11 in 2016 (if not earlier).

    The deal was done so that Jeff Hawthorne can keep his salary for a few more months after the InTouch commercialization failed this quarter.

    LindonT: Actually, technically it is GF2, not GF. Otherwise, I agree.

    Small/mid cap growth guy: You should ask your financial advisor about how convertible arbitrage works. Or, if you don't have an advisor, you should immediately hire one.

    The investors in convertible bonds DO NOT CARE AT ALL where the stock price will be in the future, because they are hedged by shorting the stock. They only two things they care about is when is UniPixel's default (bankruptcy) going to occur (but they have the cushion of $6 million in restricted cash) and whether they have properly estimated the volatility of the stock price over the next few years.

    A habitual liar and a good operator are not necessarily the same thing.
