Is it the wide-angle lens that makes Go-Pro so popular? My brother has one and (oddly) there is no screen on it.

This is just the post IPO pop.   Next will come the post IPO drop.  


Both are highly manipulated via the market makers for the issue.  Much churn involved and early investors who have preferred shares are often allowed to get out during the pop phase.


Nothing new here.

OT -

parse this:

Bulgaria sells treasuries to ensure banking liquidity

bulgaria central bank sells its treasurys

sopping up money (levs) in the process

meanwhile bulgarian govt *lending* levs to banks

repayment, plus interest, will further sop up levs

short-term removal of levs courtesy of the central bank

longer-term removal courtesy of the gov

that's how you "ensure liquidity" in bulgaria

Its because it's "ruggedized" and has a zillion mounting options.  We stick them on the sides of our cars at the dragstrip sometimes to record a pass to throw up on the internet and show our friends.  We've mounted them underhood, under the front bumper and even back off the frame to record what the rear suspension is doing on a hard launch.

They're pretty cool.  Wouldn't buy stock in the company, though.  Don't see what's stopping anyone else from making a competitor to it and eating their lunch.

I use them to record my keying in of comments to ZH for later analysis. It attaches directly to my forehead.  Very practical product, indeed, a real must-have.

Flesh light has come out with an attachment for the iPad that one can fornicate with.  Combine that with a waterproof case and you got yourself an IPO to wank for.

I have one.  My kids got it for me for fathers day.  I put it on the helmet of my motorcycle for my cross country trip.  It is Ok.  Editing the video is going to be a pain in the ass.

When I get home it will sit on my shelf until I can think of something else to stick it on.

I have video on my snapshot camera, my iphone, and my high end "professional" DSLR.

Did it increase in value 100% yesterday?  Not based on my videos.

What's the point of
Go pro cameras???

Seriously I have those Chinese knock off cameras way before existence of Go Pro for outdoor use and they are great for those limited purpose and cheap unlike Go Pro, most likely a Chinese relabeled brand similar to magnet ball fiasco.

Go Pro May becoming Gobitcoin lol

For those interested I have an IPO I'm working on it's called Pie plate on a stick.  It'll revolutionize the small gardening ecologically sound pest control segment overnight.  I've pushed the proposal to a cross section of important professionals while in aisle 3 at Canadian Tire, then assisted them to their cars with their product requisitions because the stuff they bought was heavy.  They, and I, all believe that it's worth a zillion billion dollars in Seed capital and the returns on the pie plate on a stick should exceed the world GDP yearly many times over.

ISO Adoption for Market Share:

Testing has been favourable during this planting season, small animals and birds were repelled by the awesome power of pie plate on a stick.  Only to be matched by it's durability and safety.  These conclusions of durability and safety are demonstrated of when the pie plate on a stick fell over during a gust of wind.  The pie plate on a stick neither exploded or removed anyone eye, plus could be set upright. 

These safety measures and processes are important prior to pie plate on a stick to obtain various ISO certifications to ship internationally into other markets.  This additionally requires international translation requirements to package to freight ports outside of the main shipment channels defined by BDI.



Consumer response and the science behind it, has helped shape the Pie Plate on a Stick marketing efforts.  The marketing by line will be:

Pie Plate on a Stick. It fucks with their rods and cones or some shit, and they stay out of the garden.


Packaging and Contents

As the copyright and trademark to Pie Plate on a Stick is still under going review, some of the more technical processes will be kept secret as to it's manufacturing.  So for the purposes of this IPO presentation it will simply be detailed instructions on the following:

  • how to buy a pie then eat it;
  • how to locate a stick;
  • attach some string to the pie plate;
  • attach some string to the stick;
  • ???
  • Pie Plate on a Stick

The complexity of the manufacturing in step five is the 'secret sauce', it is rumoured to be 'placing pie plate on a stick in the ground' but again the lawyers will have to work it out in no less than 84 ISO process and manufacturing review boards.  And of course the patent office. 

Some background on the professional lawyers hired for this process, they have been in the practice, and are very adapt at, of helping spend other people's time and money.  We have been assured they will help us spend other people's money as fast as possible much to the relief of the lawyers working for the investors.

Thank you, as a pre-post-shady announcement we will be having an over the top IPO party using your money to throw a party, as soon as you give it to us.  This helps in development efforts and community relationships Pie Plate on a Stick is hoping to focus on, therefore rocket boots, great hats and banana fudge sundaes will be given out.

I have no idea what this company does, nor do I have the slightest interest in learning what this company does.

In fact, other than the fact that I am avoiding work for the moment, I wouldn't even bother writing a comment

about this company.

They make decent little cameras that you can mount them on helmets and get first-person footy, or you can use 'em like regular video cameras to film other people.

Take away point - they actually make something, unlike facefuck or twatter, which just make zombeez.

They make nothing.  GoPro is made in china, once again, the only thing they "make" is marketing to sell overpriced garbage to idiots.
