SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/13 -- e.Digital Corporation (OTCQB: EDIG), a long standing source of innovation and future-defining patented technologies, today reported financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2013, ended December 31, 2012.
The Company reported a net loss of $334,494 or $(0.00) per share for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to a net income of $671,417 or $0.00 per share for the prior year's third quarter. For the third quarter of fiscal 2013 revenues totaled $79,072 compared to $1,281,845 for the third quarter of the prior year. The most recent quarter included $0 of patent license revenues compared to $1,155,000 for the third quarter of the prior year. Gross profit for the third quarter was $6,351 or 8% of revenues, compared to $1,140,046 or 89% of revenues, for the prior year's third quarter. Operating expenses decreased to $400,045 from $437,629 for the prior year's comparable quarter primarily due to reduced patent related costs.
For the nine months ended December 31, 2012 the Company reported a net loss of $1,043,482 or $(0.00) per share on revenues of $336,567. For the comparable nine months of the prior year the Company reported net income of $1,566,084 or $0.01 per share on revenues of $4,506,151. The Company's results are impacted by the timing and amount of license fees and there were no significant licensing revenues so far in fiscal 2013.
"Q3 was essentially a transitional quarter for e.Digital," commented Fred Falk, President and CEO of e.Digital. "With the reexamination of two of our key patents behind us, we were able to reignite our patent monetization efforts. Through our newly retained law firm, Handal & Associates, we have been aggressively pursuing parties believed to infringe the Company's Flash-R patents covering the use of flash memory technologies." In October and November 2012, the Company commenced new enforcement action by filing six complaints in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California. In December 2012 and January 2013 the Company filed an additional ten complaints asserting that products made and sold by the defendant companies infringe the Company's U.S. patents, and dismissed one defendant without prejudice. "We will continue to work hard to protect and enforce the Company's intellectual property and we expect to see positive results through our efforts," continued Falk.
In addition to the Flash-R progress, Q3 was a milestone quarter for new technology development. The Company was granted six patents for context and interpersonal awareness systems technologies, thereby establishing rights and officially launching the Company's Nunchi® patent portfolio. Over the last several months, the Company filed three new Nunchi related patent applications. The Company is also currently developing technologies in the areas of cloud technology, information security and user authentication. "As we return to monetizing our Flash-R patent portfolio we are also now better poised to pursue Nunchi licensing opportunities and to bring on-line our next family of IP," concluded Falk.

Most of the IoT Gateway scenarios involve collecting data from machines/processing and pushing data upstream to cloud for further analytics. The gateway hardware varies from Raspberry Pi to Industrial PCs. The document states the process of allowing deploying polyglot data pipelining software with the clear notion of supporting immutability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Shashank Jain, a development architect for SAP Labs, discussed the objective, which is to automate the IoT deployment process from development to production scenarios using Docker containers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
