Revenues for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2014 were $7.6 million and $22.4 million, respectively, which compares to $6.4 million and $21.4 million for the comparable prior year periods. The Company incurred a net loss for the three months ended January 31, 2014 of $847,000, which includes a charge of $150,000 in the third quarter of the current year for a legal settlement provision. The current quarter loss compares to a net loss of $782,000 for the comparable prior year period.

John H. Freeman, Dataram’s president and CEO commented, “The Company continues to execute its plan of cost reduction and sales expansion. The twenty two percent sales increase over the same quarter of last year and slight increase over the previous quarter of this year is a result of our product expansion, increased sales of Advanced Micro Devices (“AMD”) Radeon Memory products and growth in our AMD relationship. We continue to work to expand the number of outlets for our AMD Radeon branded consumer and server memory.”
Mr. Freeman concluded, “On March 20, 2014 we completed the sale of 219,750 shares of common stock for net proceeds of approximately $583,000 to an institutional investor in a registered direct offering. In addition, certain institutional holders of warrants exercised their warrants for 86,100 shares of common stock for net proceeds of approximately $301,350. The net proceeds from these transactions will be used for general corporate purposes, development of new software products and continued expansion of our AMD business and relationship. These monies are providing a foundation for increased growth in sales and software.”

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
