    This should make it easier to purchase for the holidays! I'd also assume demand is strong if have the world's largest retailer jumping on board. In addition, I'd also assume they've been able to ramp up production significantly if they are now carrying these in EVERY walmart in the US. We may have a pleasant surprise come this next ER!

    Upon further review, it appears these are not actually in the store (at least in my area, based on zip code). Walmart is giving the option to purchase online and pickup in store, with an expected arrival date of Dec 17th, at this time

    Either way, it's still good to have another distributor on board! We haven't had this type of support in some time! I'll take it!

    Auto Makers Losing Battle for Dashboard Apps - WSJ

    Hyundai gives up building its own software; CarPlay, Android Auto gain new support

    After several years of building its own software to connect mobile apps in its cars, Hyundai Motor Co. is throwing in the towel, becoming the first global auto maker to embrace software from potential rivals Apple Inc. and Alphabet Inc.s Google.

    It may not be the last, according to drivers and industry researchers. New car buyers are asking for vehicles that have Apples CarPlay and Alphabets Android Auto, which control the dashboard displays now providing drivers with information and entertainmentand perhaps future revenue from purchases.

    CarPlay and Android Auto only recently have been installed by auto makers, but could be in 80% of new cars sold by 2022, says researcher IHS. Autotrader.com, an auto website, says 44% of its customers surveyed would pay $1,499 more to get a car with CarPlay or Android Auto.

    Tyler Theilken, 24 years old, of Springfield, Ill., recently installed Apples CarPlay in his Jeep Wrangler using an aftermarket Alpine Electronics Inc. system. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV, which owns the Jeep brand, offers its own rival UConnect system, and Mr. Theilken has used Ford Motor Co.s rival Sync system.

    I dont see how any in-car system could be better, he said of CarPlay. I think one day, those [auto maker systems] are going to be gone.

    Car makers are loath to give up the key information and entertainment links in their vehicles, hoping to turn dashboard technology into a reason for buying their vehicle and potentially to earn revenue by selling information and mobile connectivity.

    As a result, many auto makers continue to spend big money working on their own systems, even as they increasingly offer links to Apple or Googles systems alongside their own. General Motors Co. and Honda Motor Co., for instance, recently started installing CarPlay as an option in new vehicles, and both say the software is well received. Android Auto is coming soon for their newer models.

    Jay Guzowski, a senior product manager at American Honda, said the company cant give up on its own system, called HondaLink. Not everybody has an Apple or Android phone or they arent interested in using that environment, he said.

    Other car makers, including top global seller Toyota Motor Corp., are largely avoiding Silicon Valleys tech giants and rely exclusively on their own systems to maintain the most direct link with customers.

    In part, Toyota and others say Apple and Google systems arent the right fit for every buyer. Not everyone owns a smartphone capable of linking to CarPlay or Android Auto, and the third-party systems cant be used in every market.

    In countries including China, the modified Android operating systems used in phones wont work with Android Auto and Apples iPhone isnt as widely used as it is in Europe and the U.S. In addition, the Apple and Android systems dont typically link to the buttons on a cars steering wheel, or function well in areas with poor mobile phone reception. The systems also dont connect to the autos heating and air-conditioning.

    Potentially handing troves of driver and driving-data to Apple or Google also presents red flags, and has ignited debate among auto executives.

    We are competing for mind-share inside the vehicle, said Don Butler, Ford Motors director of connected vehicles. The Dearborn, Mich., company first released its Sync system, which runs apps, sends texts and receives messages through voice activation, in its 2008 model year cars.

    Ford developed an open-source language for apps that it is trying to convince other auto makers to use so that car companies dont have to each develop their own connection to popular online music services, such as Spotify and Pandora.

    There is evidence auto makers face a tough sell to keep customers from defecting to rival systems. CarPlay and Android Autos voice recognition, which rely on cloud-based computing, can make retrieving driving directions, using phone functions or asking for music selections easier.

    California research firm J.D. Power and Associatess June survey of new car buyers found the greatest complaints involved vehicle connectivity systems. The auto makers voice recognition and Bluetooth pairing were top concerns, it said.

    Over the last five years, a lot of these auto makers have spent a lot of blood, sweat and tears developing their own system, with their own brands and thats threatened because of customers preferring to use their Apple and Google smartphones, said Mark Boyadjis, senior automotive analyst with IHS Automotive.

    Hyundai, which has a research and engineering center in Silicon Valley, agrees. Basically what weve found is that it is very hard if not impossible to keep up with just the music apps that consumers want, said Cason Grover, a manager in technology planning for Hyundais U.S. arm. When you have got solutions like Android Auto and CarPlay, they can just go to them.

    Hey M8 in regards to SPHS everyone on stocktwits seem to be fascinated by this Aspire deal? SPHS can make them buy 13M worth of shares, I don't get if that is in the open market or private deal but is this considered good for us? Or does it mean dilution in outstanding shares, also technically can't aspire just dump the shares once they forced to buy? Trying to see what other catalyst will rock this to $6+ thanks in advance!

    Also XOMA making waves AH but don't see much info on that just a phizer deal dated Dec, 3 2015 :/

    I'm no pro, by any stretch of the imagination, but I don't see a head and shoulders nor a double top. What I see is consolidation as we made a lower high and, depending on today, a higher low. Yesterday we closed right on the 50-dma. If it holds today, we should, in theory, bounce around in a tightening range until next Friday's ER. Now if the overall market conditions would stabilize, the likelihood of following the consolidation pattern will be more favourable.

    Hi slipstream89 !!

    That is an interesting financing deal to be sure, SPHS sold 600,000 shares for $ 2.0 MM bucks (May / 2014) and they can apply for more sales when they choose for an additional $ 13 MM dollars worth of common stock. You don't see deals like this very often, or at least, they involve a warrant attachment that allows the holder of the warrant to exercise the paper for common stock at a pre-determined price. Nice work SPHS!

    “The $2 million proceeds from this transaction will enable us to fund an investigator-sponsored proof of concept study in localized prostate cancer. The remaining $13 million available under the purchase agreement, if drawn down at the Company’s option, will be utilized to fund future development of PRX302 in BPH and localized prostate cancer as well as general corporate purposes.”

    SPHS has roughly 13 more months to take them up on that deal. To answer your second question, those are newly issued shares and dilutive to the number of shares outstanding. They won't call on the financing until the stock is higher and that involves next steps for PR302, .... that's the news I'm waiting for.

    Yes, Aspire can dump those shares but they won't be sold at todays' pricing, they will dump them at a much higher price, probably at least within your $ 6.00/shr plus range. Aspire gambled on getting lower cost per share financing from SPHS over that 30-month period and it looks as though they will receive fewer shares now.

    I don't know what's going on with XOMA today, I haven't followed it that closely. I'm buying THLD as they have cash of over $ 1.60/shr in the bank. This is why I look for large cash reserves to offset bad results in biotech.

    This is the BBRY thread so I have to mention something about BlackBerry. We needed to close above $ 7.67/shr to turn bullish again earlier this week and closed just under it at $ 7.64/shr. We proceeded to drop off the next day, and today, we dropped below the 50-dma for no apparent reason and without so much as a struggle to get down here. All of this on zero news so its little wonder that most investors cry foul and believe the market is manipulated. We haven't even tried to rally to the 50-dma ($ 7.41/shr and rising) which is a standard practice after MM's go head hunting for sell stops. The volume is poor for a breakdown as well. So you have to wonder how they brought it down again. I thought the Walmart news was particularly positive for the company as it signals to the world that BlackBerry can deliver on the number of unit sales potential out there and it is so easy to buy something unlocked at Walmart at the best price available today. I was wrong I guess. Let's get back to operating under true TA and not this manipulation on no news.

    I can't take an article seriously when the writer can't calculate the % increase from 800k to 900k. I stopped reading at this moment.

    But I wiill say this, if hardware is up to 900k, then next Q results in March are going to be huge. And yes, this is only my opinion.

    Yeah. If sales drop 1.2 mil in a year, but go up 100 000 in one quarter, the next year, then somethings gone right.

    Here's a quick chart to show us where we have been over the past few weeks:

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-bb-dec-10-2015.png

    We based out at a level that should have been oversold by now and have since bounced off that level to regain the 50-dma. The downtrend is our next target and it would be nice to close in the $ 7.50 plus area today. The volume is solid on the rally so there appears to be some support here. Not much else going on here, let's hope the general market holds up so we can rally back to a decent level prior to earnings.
