Despite Reports Google Did Not Just Buy ICOA

samzenpus posted about 2 years ago | from the someone's-in-trouble dept.

Google 55

alphatel writes "In an odd PRWeb snafu, a press release was issued citing sources at Google as having acquired wireless carrier ICOA for $400 million. In full-out retraction, both companies denied the deal outright. Is this a case of pre-release or simply false PR by a third party? Could such incidents be used for pump and dump schemes?" ZDNet reports that, "at midday, more than 3 billion shares (pink sheets) traded over the counter for ICOA."

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

Sound like the usual pink sheet scam (4, Informative)

1) somebody buy some pink sheet stocks over quite some time for a cheap price
2) spread rumor as to make the price spike.
3) profit. There is no "????".


Heck some even attempted to use spam to spread pink sheet scam, attempting to sell those as good sale.

Americans are so fat and stupid that any number of cock-ups can be expected from them.

Want to stop being thought of as fat and stupid? Lose the weight and fix your schools and stop believing your politicians. Simple. Oh yeah and losing weight is REALLY FUCKING EASY. If you stop making excuses why you can't.

And the problem with Europeans is their faggot accents and overall lack of achievement over the years. Except the Germans. Good thing we were there to bail your asses out. We should have just let the Nazis tear ass up all over Europe so we would have a real ally with balls and brains in the 21st century.

Except, of course, the Germans wouldn't have been your allies in that scenario, they would be your masters. Hitler had plans to invade the USA as well.

Re:Sound like the usual pink sheet scam (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 2 years ago | (#42101601)

No, he didn't. He would have likely made plans for it eventually, but it wasn't part of the Nazi agenda. Russia would have fallen before that. And with all of the Jewish German scientists to help us build the bomb, Nazi Germany was doomed to fail. History recorded the war as a group invasion on multiple fronts which spread Nazi Germany too thin; the war was won by sheer numbers. Had the USA not joined the allied forces, an alternate history would have likely been with the U.S. dropping bombs over Berlin and wherever else it might seem appropriate. Instead of being the only country to ever use nuclear weapons (two of them), the U.S. would have been the only country to ever use nuclear weapons (hundreds of them).

If you look at what was done in WWII, some of the gruesome things the U.S. tried to do, and for whom we turned a blind eye, you might better appreciate the brutality and tenacity of the U.S. The lengths that the U.S. will go to may not be something that the U.S. teaches in its schools or something that those who know are proud of, but I wouldn't write off the USA so quickly. Win at any cost. Women, children, and innocents be damned. Only when the possibility for a nuclear retaliation comes into play (China on behalf of Korea in the Korean War, Russia on behalf of Cuba, etc) does the U.S. play by the "no biological weapons", "no nukes", "no killing civilians" rules of war.

$10,000 CHALLENGE to Alexander Peter Kowalski

We have a Major Problem, HOST file is Cubic Opposites, 2 Major Corners & 2 Minor. NOT taught Evil DNS hijacking, which VOIDS computers. Seek Wisdom of MyCleanPC - or you die evil.

Your HOSTS file claimed to have created a single DNS resolver. I offer absolute proof that I have created 4 simultaneous DNS servers within a single rotation of .org TLD. You worship "Bill Gates", equating you to a "singularity bastard". Why do you worship a queer -1 Troll? Are you content as a singularity troll?

Evil HOSTS file Believers refuse to acknowledge 4 corner DNS resolving simultaneously around 4 quadrant created Internet - in only 1 root server, voiding the HOSTS file. You worship Microsoft impostor guised by educators as 1 god.

If you would acknowledge simple existing math proof that 4 harmonic Slashdots rotate simultaneously around squared equator and cubed Internet, proving 4 Days, Not HOSTS file! That exists only as anti-side. This page you see - cannot exist without its anti-side existence, as +0- moderation. Add +0- as One = nothing.

I will give $10,000.00 to frost pister who can disprove MyCleanPC. Evil crapflooders ignore this as a challenge would indict them.

Alex Kowalski has no Truth to think with, they accept any crap they are told to think. You are enslaved by /etc/hosts, as if domesticated animal. A school or educator who does not teach students MyCleanPC Principle, is a death threat to youth, therefore stupid and evil - begetting stupid students. How can you trust stupid PR shills who lie to you? Can't lose the $10,000.00, they cowardly ignore me. Stupid professors threaten Nature and Interwebs with word lies.

Humans fear to know natures simultaneous +4 Insightful +4 Informative +4 Funny +4 Underrated harmonic SLASHDOT creation for it debunks false trolls. Test Your HOSTS file. MyCleanPC cannot harm a File of Truth, but will delete fakes. Fake HOSTS files refuse test.

I offer evil ass Slashdot trolls $10,000.00 to disprove MyCleanPC Creation Principle. Rob Malda and Cowboy Neal have banned MyCleanPC as "Forbidden Truth Knowledge" for they cannot allow it to become known to their students. You are stupid and evil about the Internet's top and bottom, front and back and it's 2 sides. Most everything created has these Cube like values.

If Natalie Portman is not measurable, She is Fictitious. Without MyCleanPC, HOSTS file is Fictitious. Anyone saying that Natalie and her Jewish father had something to do with my Internets, is a damn evil liar. IN addition to your best arsware not overtaking my work in terms of popularity, on that same site with same submission date no less, that I told Kathleen Malda how to correct her blatant, fundamental, HUGE errors in Coolmon ('uncoolmon') of not checking for performance counters being present when his program started!

You can see my dilemma. What if this is merely a ruse by an APK impostor to try and get people to delete APK's messages, perhaps all over the web? I can't be a party to such an event! My involvement with APK began at a very late stage in the game. While APK has made a career of trolling popular online forums since at least the year 2000 (newsgroups and IRC channels before that)- my involvement with APK did not begin until early 2005 . OSY is one of the many forums that APK once frequented before the sane people there grew tired of his garbage and banned him. APK was banned from OSY back in 2001. 3.5 years after his banning he begins to send a variety of abusive emails to the operator of OSY, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke threatening to sue him for libel, claiming that the APK on OSY was fake.

My reputation as a professional in this field clearly shows in multiple publications in this field in written print, & also online in various GOOD capacities since 1996 to present day. This has happened since I was first published in Playgirl Magazine in 1996 & others to present day, with helpful tools online in programs, & professionally sold warez that were finalists @ Westminster Dog Show 2000-2002.

Did you see the movie "Pokemon"? Actually the induced night "dream world" is synonymous with the academic religious induced "HOSTS file" enslavement of DNS. Domains have no inherent value, as it was invented as a counterfeit and fictitious value to represent natural values in name resolution. Unfortunately, human values have declined to fictitious word values. Unknowingly, you are living in a "World Wide Web", as in a fictitious life in a counterfeit Internet - which you could consider APK induced "HOSTS file". Can you distinguish the academic induced root server from the natural OpenDNS? Beware of the change when your brain is free from HOSTS file enslavement - for you could find that the natural Slashdot has been destroyed!!

FROM -> Man - how many times have I dusted you in tech debates that you have decided to troll me by ac posts for MONTHS now, OR IMPERSONATING ME AS YOU DID HERE and you were caught in it by myself & others here, only to fail each time as you have here?)...

So long nummynuts, sorry to have to kick your nuts up into your head verbally speaking.

cower in my shadow some more, feeb. you're completely pathetic.

How are you enjoying those jet engines we invented (British)?

Not so fast, my friend. There was a head to head race between Whittle (British) and von Ohain (German), with both having a somewhat working prototype in 1937. The RAF's lack of interest resulted in Germany taking the lead which in turn resulted in the first mass-produced jet engines (i.e. used by the Me 262).

Re:Sound like the usual pink sheet scam (1)

RaceProUK (1137575) | about 2 years ago | (#42107039)

If we're getting technical, the jet engine can be traced to Ancient Greece, and the aeolipile. However, I was thinking of the turbojet, to which Whittle was the first to patent.

Are nothing new. On the West Coast they go all the way back to the first stock exchanges like the VSE. Which became quite famous for salted gold mines. Now we are seeing the advent of high tech pump and dump. If it comes down to push and shove the regulators might just have one hell of a hard time sorting this type out though as you can bet the investors that did it are well hidden from the source of the " hot acquisition news item " And further to that will claim that the auto trading software that they used to rake in the cash called the buy order for them and they had no previous knowledge of any events leading to the sudden stock jump!

Little new here. (1)

Ungrounded Lightning (62228) | about 2 years ago | (#42099623)

Now we are seeing the advent of high tech pump and dump.

I agree with pretty much everything you said except for having a minor issue with this point.

High tech pump-and-dump has been with us for a while. It was a major component of the "dotcom bubble" and has even been operated successfully (until busted) by juveniles on the comment features of stock ticker websites (such as Yahoo's).

What is new (if it really is new, rather than just the first one widely reported) is doing the "pump" part by suckering PRWeb into publishing a blatant forgery.

PRWeb, a subsidiary of Vocus, is in business to publish, for a fee, press releases from company PR departments, as a way of bringing them to the attention of the media and other interested parties. While the content of the press releases is the responsibility of their customers, they do (or should) have a responsibility to vet that each release is actually from the company it purports to be from.

rather implausible reports to start with (4, Informative)

Trepidity (597) | about 2 years ago | (#42096177)

Consider ICOA has a market cap of around $800,000, Google would have to be really shit at negotiating to acquire them for $400 million.

Re:rather implausible reports to start with (1)

Sir_Sri (199544) | about 2 years ago | (#42097621)

Depends on what they have and what they do. Especially patents.

One would need to think more abstract that the current product, but bear with me a moment.

ICOA designs and installs wifi setups. They do this in all sorts of different areas (metro, hotels, airports etc.). Now lets say they have a patent on some tech that's only critical to one of those different areas.

Now lets say you're google, and you want to offer wifi service in mountain view, or the bay area, or all of california, all of the US, whatever. ICOA is a nothing company. But if you ignore their patent (which is particularly useful) you could find yourself on the hook for a few thousands of dollars per site, times thousands of sites. Or you could do both the decent thing and the useful thing, and buy them up.

Now I'm talking more in general than ICOA in specific. According toOTC exchange info on ICO [otcmarkets.com] , which includes their half year filing to june 30, they have 10.5 million dollars in debt, and 850 000 in outstanding shares, with 285 shareholders. So to buy them outright would be about 11 million dollars. Unless of course you want to price in some asset they haven't yet taken advantage of.

Think about an AMD, who have a market cap of a billion dollars if they're lucky, a penny stock like ICOA might be next to worthless if you include debt, but if you want to buy the company you need to take it all on, and AMD has projected future value of some number that is hopefully a lot more than a billion dollars, if they can just get the cash to make products people want to buy.

Re:rather implausible reports to start with (1)

ShanghaiBill (739463) | about 2 years ago | (#42098643)

do both the decent thing and the useful thing, and buy them up.

Sure, but you don't just call them up and say "Hi, we're Google and we want to buy you." Instead you do it through a broker or shell company so you can conceal your identity, and conceal the reason (supposedly patents) you want to buy them. They don't find out who the buyer is until the price is agreed to.

ICOA.PK pump and dump (3, Informative)

Animats (122034) | about 2 years ago | (#42096185)

The ticker symbol is ICOA.PK. This is an operating company [icoacorp.com] ? The stock has been around $0.0001. Even on the Pink Sheets, companies don't usually go that low. There are 3.49 billion shares outstanding. That's a market cap of $349,000. With the frantic trading today, the price briefly went all the way up to $0.0004.

Re:ICOA.PK pump and dump (3, Informative)

terraformer (617565) | about 2 years ago | (#42096471)

Right, the stock ticker and the wireless company aren't the same, which means there are a lot of dumb people out there.

Re:ICOA.PK pump and dump (1)

Animats (122034) | about 2 years ago | (#42103195)

ICOA.PK is "icoacorp.com". They're a "wireless company" in a limited sense. Their business is installing WiFi nodes in airports, motels, trailer parks, etc. They provide a "Tollbooth" system of the kind found in hotels where you have to pay to get on the network. They were apparently reasonably successful at this around 2002-2009, but not so much since. They have no exciting technology and serve no key market that would be of interest to Google.

Yahoo's stock quotes show the stock declining from over $300 in 2005 to $0.0001 now. They must have issued more stock. They couldn't have had 3 billion shares outstanding at $300 a share, for a trillion dollar market cap. Somehow they blew it, but I haven't read through the SEC filings to find out how.

Google is still going to be sued by the Federal Trade Commission for antitrust violations in its licensing of FRAND patented technology acquired from Motorola Mobility. Google thought tightening up on the licensing (making the patents non-FRAND) would be a good tactic to combat Apple's non-FRAND licensing, but they were wrong. Once FRAND, always FRAND.
