Big developments on Adam's Platform and Media World Communications
attempt at creating the holy grail of digital compression. Adam clark,
the 28 year old australian genius who has supposedly invented a
groundbreaking algorithm to compress data like never before. There
have been developments with an independent report by the tolly group
late last year. (www.tollygroup.com) The transaction with media world
communications has been completed, and adam stands to be paid AUD 70
million for the technology plus a substantial shareholding in MWC. He
has already been paid around $5 million. The tolly report verified
that the technology works. This occured over a 2 week period of
stringent testing(check tolly website under 'testing').It will soon be
commercialised but the world is yet to know about it. The
ramifications of having technology that enables sending huge amounts
of info down a phone line at 14.4 kbps are huge. Video on demand in
DVD quality in real time down a copper phone line is one of many
killer applications.

Anyway, it should all happen in the next month. There are also reports
of Microsoft and Intel having a bidding war to buy out the company
recently, and the figure rejected by adam Clark was purported to be
US$3 billion .

Keep an eye on this company and its technology-in one month everyone
will know about it.

So we can expect the "stock on the rise" spam in about 6 days, right?

People who invest in scams like this deserve to lose their money.

"Clark created international headlines and scepticism in May 1998 when
he claimed to have invented a way to send high-quality video with
stereo sound down ordinary telephone lines, with compression ratios
greater than 1000:1.

"It was claimed commercialisation was imminent.

"Now, Tatoulis says Media World is putting a strategy together to
bring the technique to market. He promises a prototype within three
months, and says a patent is being sought."

Or maybe again in another six years.

So, why does Adam still not have a patent? Why the need for all the smoke
and mirrors? The "we cant let anyone do real testing because it would open
us up to industrial espionage" schtick just doesnt cut it for me. Eventually
at least the decoder will be open for inspection by competitors, only
patents grant protection of Adam's "IP" in the end.

The testing conditions seem to be engineered by MWC and not by the Tolly
Group, the wireless LAN analyzer especially was amusing. These tests mean
diddly squat, but unfortunately Im sure they can find some investors to buy
into it. I wonder if it will be as successfull as their gold prospecting.

No worries sev.
I understand your scepticism. This company is not listed at present.
Re-listing will occur in a month or so, so this is not an attempt at
ramping the stock-as you can't trade it. I am just alerting you to the
fact that someone has finally done it-check out the testing results
for yourself-www.tollygroup.com and look under media world
communications in the testing section.

lol... good one. I love your "proof of transport" tests. They prove that
data is being transmitted. There is nothing to say that the data is not
there for the specific purpose of passing "proof of transport" tests.

...the article is probably in the wayback machine but those who are
ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it.

What kind of an idiot are you?, sampo, comming to crap at this place?
You wouldn't even post your references properly, anyone who cares the
link is below. Go away sampo, and come back when you've actually
stopped wetting your bed every night.

Probably they did the testing in australia because the coriolis effect
has a positive effect on the algorithm in the southern hemisphere.
What a pile of shit.

Hey gunther you fuckhead, the link I gave was fine. You are an
ignorant retard-wait a month and you will be eating your words-I 'll
send you a friendly post to rub it in. Losers like you make me laugh-
you never get anywhere in life, always bagging others with your bitter
twisted attitudes. Open your mind, and one day you might live a
little.

Hey sampo, this is the deal: If this crap turns out to work for real,
I will apologize to you and take everything back. Until then, just
keep your trap shut and go back to your retention excercises, dryness
can be achieved. Actually most people achieve it during infancy.

Hey Gunther, start drafting that apology - you're gonna need it you
loser. You'll be kissing Adam Clark's feet at the end of April. He is
the new Bill Gates.

Well I can't wait to kiss this bitch's butt. Bring this shit on. We're
ready for some holy grail.
