Last time I recalled they still have LinkedIn and GitHub and Bing and teams and stuff and everything and likely also Bliizard. You are going to continue to use those without a question. $msft

Discord is a very sticky chat app. Microsoft’s now has a lot of things that you have to visit everyday like GitHub or LinkedIn so they’re definitely on the right track. $msft

How KULR Technology (OTCQB: KULR) Could Disrupt the Electronics and Battery Industries
By: supernova lazy guy    
   on Nov 15, 2019

Hello all. I'm a consultant for KULR and the CEO of the Company I've known since my college days at UC Santa Barbara in the early 90's. On that note make sure to read the disclosure statement at the end of this post. Recently the Company was interviewed on CNN: https://twitter.com/i/status/1190275818704003072

What is KULR Technology?

Overheating caused by increasing power demands of electronics and the batteries that power them, can impair system performance, reliability, and reduce lifespan. The KULR Technology team has a longstanding history of producing high-performance, passive cooling solutions (heat sinks and thermal interface materials) for electronics used by the aerospace and defense industries. The Company has been working diligently over the last two years to commercialize its NASA utilized heat sink and thermal interface solutions across multiple consumer facing industries including the automotive (electric vehicles), medical equipment, power tool, shipping and logistics, and consumer electronics.

The Simple Science Behind KULR’s Core Technology

KULR’s cooling solutions are elegantly simple, yet highly effective. The Company’s products take advantage of the exceptional physical properties of carbon. Carbon in diamond form is one of the most thermally conductive materials (~2,000 W/m-K) on earth, being 5X and 8X more thermally conductive than copper and aluminum, respectively. In carbon (graphite) fiber form, overall thermal conductivity can approach the extraordinary levels of diamond, when configured as a dense array of vertically aligned carbon fibers to increase surface area (Source: “Carbon Fiber Overcomes Electronic and Thermal Design Challenges”, Tirias Research). This is KULR’s core technology. Materials with high thermal conductivity are effectively used to passively cool electronics, batteries, and even motors by moving heat away the heat source (i.e. semiconductor chip or lithium-ion battery cell). KULR’s carbon fiber-based cooling technologies outperform traditional materials used for thermal management.

KULR’s technologies also allow for thinner and smaller end-product form factors and are lighter in weight than conventional thermal interface materials (i.e. thermal pads) and heat sinks (i.e. copper and aluminum). Reduced size and weight of a thermal management solution provides electronics manufacturers with greater product design flexibility.

Recent announcements regarding Tier-1 developmental partnerships have been made as the Company has recently moved into later stages of product development with various world-class companies. You may find more information related to this here: https://kulrtechnology.com/news/

The Company's deck is available here: https://kulrtechnology.com/category/presentations/

Currently KULR's trading volume is very low. However, low stock volume isn’t necessarily indicative of a poor investment and can occur for the following reasons: 1) A lack of investor awareness. The company is vastly unknown to the broad investment community. This is especially true in the OTC marketplace where the investment pool is quite small relative to the NASDAQ or NYSE markets. 2) Most immature, development stage companies will fail to commercialize their businesses in a meaningful way so many investors shy away from such high-risk investments 3) A lack of credibility due to the prevalence of “bad actors” in the OTC marketplace. Quite a few OTC companies resort to illegitimate promotional tactics to generate volume and price action. In the last year, the OTC markets has made efforts to clean house, which serves to improve the investment landscape: https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/otc-markets-group-launches-new-stock-promotion-flag-300620465.html

One should understand the risks associated with investing in low volume stocks (liquidity risk). Additionally, understanding asset allocation strategies and performing extensive due diligence is always prudent prior to making any investment. Opportunities do exist to invest in development stage companies with good business models that have potential to flourish. Although such cases are uncommon, low volume stocks can also create opportunities to capture multi-baggers while they “remain outside the purview of mainstream traders and investors”. Microsoft (NYSE: MSFT) and Infosys (NYSE: INFY) were once very low volume stocks.

I've already posted a lot of information. More to follow.

Tom

**Disclosure: This information does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of offers to buy any securities of KULR. My family has invested in KULR and I'm personally acting as a consultant for KULR and have been compensated in shares for that role. I'm an unlicensed financial professional but performed extensive research on the Company and believe KULR has real potential to displace conventional thermal management or "cooling" solutions for the electronics and battery industries. This is my opinion and you should always perform your own complete due diligence before making any investment decision. There is obviously risk of loss when buying or selling securities and generally even greater risk associated with buying or selling micro-cap stocks. Some real challenges faced by micro-cap companies include raising capital, increasing liquidity, attracting institutional investors, gaining analyst coverage, and general mistrust of the micro-cap market. Micro-cap companies also tend to lack in resources and often struggle to commercialize their products or services in a meaningful way.

Microsoft is gravitating toward open source nowadays and I think this makes it even harder to compete with them. Because it's open source they can do whatever projects you can do but with a lot more resources. And now with Github they basically know what you're going to do with your code, how you store your code and how you build and deploy your code later on. In a way they can kill a project in the early stage if the project get traction and threatens Microsoft in any way or maybe just make a similar product of it. Good news for Microsoft but not sure it's as good for other software companies.

Great company, the feeling is the market cap would stay above 1T this time. Market downtrend doesn't seem to affect it much. It's a wonder how a company this large can still grow so fast. I was previously in $work and I was shocked to see Microsoft Teams overtake Slack in DAU in such a short period of time so I had to sell Slack. Also as a software developer you just cannot leave Github and Linkedin. You need to check Linkedin everyday and all your code is on Github. And all of a sudden it makes sense for them to roll out something like github Actions which is a CI/CD service and take a stab at the Ci/CD market. The acquisition of Github & Linkedin makes more sense to me now.
