President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Salisbury stated, "I am pleased to report that the Bank ended 2012 with continued improvement in many critical areas to enhance the financial condition of the Bank in these troubled economic and political times. Our $72,000 of earnings for this quarter represents our eighth consecutive profitable quarter. Our $265,000 of earnings for the year 2012 compares to $365,000 for 2011. Earnings for 2012 were reduced by the $120,000 non-cash expense of stock options, while 2011 was not so burdened. The grants of new stock options in 2012 were for the purpose of retaining, attracting and incentivizing Board members and key team members, and, when exercised, adds additional capital to the Bank. In 2012, $158,000 of new capital was obtained by the exercising of stock options. Stock option expense for 2013 will be minimal as compared to 2012. The combination of positive earnings for two consecutive years and the addition of the new capital have increased the Bank's capital to assets by 39.6%, to 9.16% at December 31, 2012 from a low of 6.56% at December 31, 2010. The Bank's net interest income did decline by $200,000 year over year due primarily to the reduction in gross loans and lower yields on new and refinanced loans. The $200,000 reduction in net interest income was mitigated by a reduction in operating expenses of $100,000 and an increase in other loan related fee income of $110,000.
"The Bank continues to work diligently to address non-performing assets. As noted above non-performing assets decreased $2.6MM, or 30.2%, to $6.0MM at December 31, 2012 from $8.6MM at December 31, 2011. The Bank was able to sell $1.2MM of repossessed property during 2012 while not adding any new repossessed property. While gross loans declined $2.2MM year over year from $50.6MM at December 2011 to $48.4MM at December 31, 2012, several non-performing loans were part of the reduction when paid down or charged off. The Bank did originate and refinance $10.5MM of loans in 2012.
"In order to maximize the Bank's earnings and capital the Bank continued to reduce its asset size. Total assets decreased $9.4MM, or 12.2%, to $67.6MM at December 31, 2012, as compared to $77.0MM at December 31, 2011. Cash and cash equivalents decreased $5.6MM, gross loans decreased $2.2MM, repossessed assets decreased $1.2MM and other assets decreased $400,000. The cash and cash equivalent decrease was primarily due to the intentional reduction of out of market certificates of deposits and Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings. Lower yielding short term investments were allocated to pay off higher cost maturing certificates of deposits and Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings during 2012, which has helped reduce the Bank's cost of funds by 25% and increase the net interest margin.
"The Bank again added $60,000 for the quarter just ended to its allowance for loan loss reserve. Year to date the provision was $238,000. The allowance for loan losses totals $1.9MM at December 31, 2012. This is 3.89% of gross loans and is available to act as a cushion to absorb potential losses on existing troubled loans.
"The Bank continued to successfully reduce its cost of funds. Cost of funds decreased 25.0% to 1.14% at December 31, 2012 as compared to 1.52% at December 31, 2011.
"Nearly twenty cents of every dollar is held in domestic liquid assets to cushion the Bank from a rising interest rate environment and to allow for the funding of new loans. In addition, at December 31, 2012, transaction checking accounts have increased $2.4MM, or 24.2%, year over year.
"The Western Montana economy continues to present challenges to the Bank in its efforts to dispose of its remaining repossessed property and certain portions of its loan portfolio. Additional write downs of repossessed developed lots may be required to liquidate them in the future if demand for them does not improve. However, recently there continues to be a slight improvement in the Western Montana economy. With this improved economic outlook, positive earnings and the $1.9MM in loan loss reserves, the Bank is hopeful that its non-performing assets will continue to decline. The continued easing by the Federal Reserve could result in a continued decrease in net interest income for the Bank and could put added pressure on the Bank's earnings. On the other side, if the Federal Reserve were to discontinue its policy of easing and adding liquidity to the markets, or the United States deficits are not meaningfully reduced, then interest rates could increase. This could reduce the Bank's loan fee income associated with the origination of mortgage loans and put pressure on the Bank's cost of funds. However, we will continue to work diligently to improve the asset quality of the Bank, generate profits to enhance stockholders' equity and retain adequate liquidity in these uncertain economic times. The Bank has made great progress in the last two years and is in the position to once again grow its asset base with quality loans funded by core deposits in 2013 and beyond."

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...

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.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
