BOCA RATON, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 11/19/12 -- Hollywood Media Corp. (NASDAQ: HOLL) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

On a continuing operations basis, which includes the contribution from Tekno Books, the Company's 100% owned subsidiary under the Intellectual Property division, net revenues for the 2012 third quarter were $0.1 million compared to $0.2 million in the prior-year period.

Loss from continuing operations for the 2012 third quarter was $2.3 million, or $0.10 per share, which includes a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $3.6 million relating to the Company's Ad Sales division, which compared to a loss from continuing operations for the 2011 third quarter of $5.6 million, or $0.24 per share, which includes a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $4.8 million relating to the Company's Ad Sales division.

Net loss, which includes discontinued operations, was $0.5 million, or $0.02 per share, in the 2012 third quarter, compared to net loss of $5.4 million, or $0.23 per share, in the prior-year period.

At September 30, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $6.0 million and no debt as compared to cash and cash equivalents of $3.7 million and no debt at December 31, 2011.

Following the close of the 2012 third quarter and not included in the Company's financial statements for the recent period, Hollywood Media Corp. announced on October 1, 2012 that it received the first $7 million earnout payment in cash from Key Brand Entertainment Inc.

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...

Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today. By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds. Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small, but are focused on specific tasks. The ability for developers to deploy multiple containers – thous...
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo, November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
