TMF ran an article on Yahoo Finance on 13-Apr-2012 about 3 high-tech companies. Sketch notes follow.
IQE – makes semicondictor wafers that have more functionality and lower power consumption than silicon devices. GaAs (Gallium Arsenide) chips makes them very suitable for mobile phones, satellite and microwave communications, high-frequency radar systems and solid state lighting.
Lo-Q – makes little handheld devices that look a little like tamagotchi machines, and allows you to jump queues in theme parks. You rent the device, and put yourself in a "virtual" queue, so that you don’t have to stand in line physcially. It shares its revenue with the park operators. The company does business with 4 or the top 10 theme park operators.
blinkx – a video search engine. You can visit its website directly, and it also makes its money from signing up partners. Its search technology is licensed exclusively from Autonomy (what’s the stop Autonomy applying a squeeze?). There’s a blogger who writes about blinkx exclusively. He’s not a happy bunny.
