  • 3D Printing Debunked, Part 1: Consumers [View article]
    Ku
    "Adults I know are buying their kids 3D printers because they want their kids to be in front of it and to be cool."

    Yes, the same reason adults bought desktops in 1999.

    You are basing part of your analysis on a department that Nokia no longer owns, and you made a future prediction that included that department. How can a nonexistent department have future impact on a company?

  • Advanced Cell Technology On The Doorstep [View article]
    If you look at the dates, you'll see the January date was pushed back to Aug. But, since Myles has said they may not publish anything, "if ever," it really doesn't matter.

    The only thing that matters is "a" publication, and everything else leading to that is called disaster, dilution, lack of funds, money pipes that may dry up.

    Currently, shareholders have zero idea when, if ever, any publication will materialize. We really don't.

    And, for that reason, anyone thinking about getting into ACTC should heed JMY's current advice, and stay out until that publication presents itself--if ever.

    Val

    "the idea that it is selling a portion of its troubled business should not be viewed as a positive regarding industry structure and long-term investment returns. "

    Then why do you include a nonexistent aspect of Nokia in your valuations?

    If I have to choose between walking or that thing, it's walking all the way.

    The garbage part, for one example, was your comment about Nokia phones and Nokia selling them. I think you may be around seven months out of date.

    Yes, you surely do have a fair value from "some time."

  • 3D Systems: Consumer 3-D Printing Gets A Boost [View article]
    AH

    My sentiments exactly. What do consumers think they will use the system to do? Like you said, make a phone cover for their iPhone? Oh, great, with only 999999Trillion covers, what the consumer will do is rush down to Staples to crate their own at 100x the cost.

    What the consumer needs is the Star Trek replicator.
    "Tea, Hot, Earl Grey!"

    I guess if the consumer had a personal 3D printer, he or she could make, in privacy, simply sex toys? Well, that's something. I guess.

    Not failure, but the means by which consumers put computers and their potential to use. A consumer might buy a 3Dprinter and print a baby toy, to use AH example. But that alone isn't going to pump up 3D printer sales.

    Consumers in the 90/early 2000s thought they needed a "computer" when all they really needed was email and a word processor. Why do you think Desktops have taken a dive? It's because phones and tabs do everything consumers need, like Facebook, pictures, and chattty chats, whereas tech savvy computer gamers still use a desktop--they need it for graphics reasons, mainly. (And once we can plug our phones into a 23"monitor and play games like Crysis, etc, on them, there will be no more "desktops."

    In other words, computers were too complicated for the average person to take the time to learn how to use them, unless they had to for work, and that's my point, and Andreas' too.

    AH,

    And the same could be said for Desktop Computers on the 90s. Everyone had to have one, and most of them sat as a mantle piece in the living room--no one having the interest to actually sit down and figure out how to make them "do things."

    Most people figured out all they really need is email and a word processor, and printer. No they use a "tablet." The analogy is that a "computer" like a 3D printer, is simply a tool that you must understand how to run before you get any output. Like you said, most people--not gonna happen.

    AH

    I'm glad they stated this early on so I didn't waste anymore time reading:

    "Nokia continues to be troubled. Though the firm looks forward to a new line of Lumia products, competition remains fierce from the likes of Apple (AAPL), and significant traction from new product launches will be hard to come by."
