We are extremely attractive to page companies, because we significantly increase their user base.
As a small company our fastest way to market was going to be by working with other retailers that were known for pioneering new technologies and categories.
We initially targeted pager networks, which have been suffering for the last decade due to cell phone sales.
We created the ability for people to insert enterprise or personal data.
The orbs have probably sold better through catalogs because they can be categorized unlike at most stores.
All of the devices work out of the box without any subscription fee.
Every time we bring someone in we ensure that they are a strategic thinker, but even more important that they understand that if the products aren’t successful and the products don’t sell that there won’t be anything to strategize about.
There will be hundreds of new companies that will be created to develop these very simple data devices.
There are already a lot of devices in our lives that have rich text or the ability to handle graphics. Our devices are designed to be understood in less than a quarter of a second.
Our system allows you to respond to the information that is important to you. It allows you to sense and be attuned to more streams of information in parallel.
Our criteria for good data feeds are that they need to be dynamic enough to be interesting, something that users want to attune to throughout the day, etc.
Integral to the orb is our low cost long-range wireless radio data system and a protocol that allows us to send this data over 90% of the US population every 15 minutes throughout the day.
The orb allows for constant dynamic feedback.
