Barely making Nasdaq, but 3rd highest paid executive -- June 1, 2009
"No. 3 on the list was Scott Silverman, former chairman of Delray Beach-based VeriChip. He took home $8.2 million in 2008, largely as a result of VeriChip's 2008 sale of much of the company to Stanley Works for $48 million. "It probably is surprising that a company our size would have the third-highest-paid executive," Silverman said. "But I would also submit that this was a transforming event for our shareholders, and a once-in-a-lifetime event for me."

Spoken by Joe Grillo -- Oct. 30, 2008

"Moreover, we think that our non-core asset sales have resulted in a significant reduction of operational as well as financial risk to the Company, as we have sold business assets that lacked critical mass and that were causing management distraction and other misallocations of resources. As a result of these sales, our Company is now in two clearly-defined, solid operating lines of businesses, Animal ID and Emergency ID ( Ed: euphemism for HUMAN ID ) , both long-established since the 1940s ( Ed: Human ID mainstreamed in 2004 ) , with considerable continuity in customer base, distribution channels and high brand equity. In our view, both lines of business offer substantial growth opportunities, and, even more important in the current environment, relatively recession-resistant economics. We believe that people will continue to see value in protecting their companion pets and in food traceability, and that the new satellite system upgrade will continue to drive sales of our military, commercial and recreational GPS locator beacons for many quarters to come. ....
As I have said on many occasions, Digital Angel's two main operating businesses both operate in highly fragmented markets, which we believe will give us ample opportunities for consolidation [ Ed: interpreting man same as animal; objects to be monitored ] once we have further strengthened our financial position. "
....... Denmark, where this month we have closed a factory and are moving our European production to Poland
...To that end, we are making changes in the sales departments in all areas of our businesses, bringing in new talent and introducing better thought-out incentive programs for our salespeople, thus positioning ourselves not only to survive the tough times but to be in a superior competitive position when business conditions improve.

01.08.03: IBM's newest health-related technology wirelessly links heart monitors to mobile wireless devices such as cellular phones. The premise behind the device, called Peace of Mind, is to inform physicians or relatives if the heart-monitor wearer experiences cardiac distress. A person using Peace of Mind would have
a heart-rate measuring patch on his/her chest that would activate if the person's heart rate rose above a predetermined rate.
Using Bluetooth, a relay device that works with Peace of Mind, an alert would be sent to a designated cell phone or personal digital assistant loaded with special IBM software, to initiate an alert or rescue. IBM's technology has not yet been released in any devices on the market.
Digital Angel International, a wireless safety and locations systems company, has developed similar technology.
Its wristwatch-size health monitoring device uses a satellite chip to pinpoint the location of the person in distress, and contacts help with the location. Original IBM press release.

"There is nowhere on Digital Angel's site where it says it will not introduce similar implants for people. If it will never introduce them, let that be declared to the market. But it appears Destron Fearing was bought specifically for these patents."

Main goal : biosensor feedback via implanted chip; wireless transmission to web anytime, anywhere; 24/7 tracking,monitoring
A miniature sensor device -- smaller than a grain of rice and equipped with a tiny antenna -- will capture and wirelessly transmit a person's vital body-function data, such as body temperature or pulse, to an Internet-integrated ground station. In addition, the antenna will also receive information regarding the location of the individual from the GPS satellite [Ed: 2006 update; not GPS, but from low earth orbiting satellites LEOs and zigbee mesh networking] .
Both sets of data -- medical information and location -- will then be wirelessly transmitted to the ground station and made available on Web-enabled desktop, laptop or wireless devices. This demonstration represents the first time these technologies have been united into one functioning system

"CityTalk" to Acquire 3 Companies: Wireless Tower, Spectrum and Network Assets
acquiring wireless networks to coalesce rapidly -- Nov. 30, 2006
Move Follows Recent Merger with Semotus (software ) , Inc. and Hiring of Stephens ( Investment Bank ) Inc.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CityTalk, Inc. (CTI), an emerging player in the fast-growing cellular market, announced today it has
signed a definitive agreement with a U.S. regional flat rate wireless company to acquire selected wireless infrastructure assets
[ Richard] Sullivan ..." The experience of the CTI team in executing acquisitions, growing operations, building networks and accessing the capital markets should coalesce to provide exciting growth opportunities for our shareholders. Key acquisitions are an important part of our strategy. In addition to the agreement we are announcing today, we are in various levels of discussion with a number of regional wireless carriers, each of which will add important experience, reach and financial results in support of our plans.
Stephens Inc. is a full service investment banking firm headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas

And as wireless-service providers roll out a new technology called WiMax, allowing for broadband access from within a 30-mile radius of its antenna, they will likely attach the new antennas required for that technology to existing wireless towers, which they will lease. After all, building wireless towers can be costly, to the tune of $200,000 per site, and gaining municipal permits for construction can turn into a multiyear headache. As a result, it's much easier to rent tower space from existing companies.
