  1. The terrible truth is that the temporary CEO (a patent attorney by trade) has filed for a thousand worthless patents in the past with regard to this company. Investors FINALLY began to see through the veil and realize that those patent approvals were nothing more than worthless attempts to either pump the stock price to raise funds (twice last year) OR attempts to keep the stock above $1 (which is was dangerously close to recently). His newest attempt is unique by the fact that is a merger between two worthless companies with investors footing the bill (yes it’s another fund raising attempt). Watering down a 40,000,000 share company with 134,000,000 new shares. Save your money rubber necks and move on. This train wreck was a DOA case months ago.
