"In anticipation of a quarterly decline in our second quarter revenues," said Jason Williams, Bingo.com's CEO, "we reduced our marketing spend until mobile and tablet support for our gambling products are delivered by our technology supplier.

Trophy Bingo is an innovative product in the social bingo marketplace, containing many new features and unique Power Plays. We are enthusiastic about its market potential and look forward to its imminent launch."

In the first quarter of 2014, the Company ceased to capitalize the development of Trophy Bingo and commenced expensing the current development costs. Therefore, this increased the operating costs in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013. The Company provided cash of $124,241 in operating activities compared to using cash of ($298,623) in the first quarter of 2014 by improving its collections and payable timings.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
