Moller International/Freedom Motors August 2019 Newsletter


  • The SEC had temporarily stopped Moller International (MI) stock from being traded on the Over the Counter Bulletin Board (OTCBB). This is because MI’s accountant was unable to file quarterly or annual reports since September 2015, due to MI’s dormant state. MI primary address was also not updated since we moved to our new facility, even though we have promptly alerted SEC. Finally, when we did receive the letter due to the good deed of the current occupants of MI’s previous location, we sprung into action and rectified the first issue we have with the state of California. We also ensured MI is represented by legal counsel who continue to engage with SEC. Now the MI stock is trading again.  As we know actions speak louder than words, we wanted to reach out to you through this newsletter to let you know MI is making every effort possible to keep from being delisted.

Although the leaders in most classes have run away with the titles, the remaining podium places are to be decided (weather permitting) over multiple races. If the Windguru weather forecast holds true, sailors can expect 10 to 12 knots form the South East and the Race Officers on three courses, to whip through the remaining race schedule and bring this 22nd edition to its natural conclusion.

Handing Over the (Digital) Keys: Should You Trust a Smart Lock?

The use of ‘smart’ and ‘IoT’ started off with people buying products for their sexy new functionality without giving much serious though to what downsides and dangers might result. We will see more comment from many different sources over the coming months and years. Below is a nicely thought-out advisory that is very worthwhile reading. However, a word of two of caution. Fear of risk can be even more dangerous than the risk itself. It is also true that any given risk can affect different people in different ways. With any electronic device, and most other products, there is always some potential risk. With electronic, particularly IoT, devices most potential risk is invisible. It becomes a question of deciding how important the functionality is against the probability and impact of the potential threats. Most of us don’t want to spend any time considering this vital equation because we know that bad things always affect other people – UNTIL THE DAY THAT THEY AFFECT US. The answer is to remain alert, read well-researched advisories like the one below, and then decide what you need to do and what level of risk is acceptable, but don’t take the marketing hype too seriously because it only mentions the good things………..BRN Ed.

Advancements in the home automation industry have afforded us the ability to steer clear of the mundane – and, frankly, annoying – tasks of everyday life, including that sweat-inducing episode of rummaging through your purse to find your house key while also holding six bags of groceries. But that innovative location-tracking feature on the smart lock that unlocks the door before you ever reach your doorstep poses yet another example of the privacy paradox — some may love the convenience and also wonder where all the data crunched into that convenience is going and who’s eyeing it.
