|By Business Wire

Support.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:SPRT), makers of Support.com® Cloud software
for Support Interaction Optimization, and a leading provider of tech
support and turnkey support center services, today announced that a
1-for-3 reverse stock split of its common stock will be effective at
12:01a.m. Eastern Standard Time on Friday, January 20, 2017. Trading of
the Company’s common stock on The NASDAQ Capital Market will continue,
on a post-split basis, with the opening of the markets on Friday,
January 20, 2017, under the existing trading symbol “SPRT” and under new
CUSIP number 86858W200.
As previously announced, the Company’s stockholders approved a proposal
authorizing the Company’s Board of Directors, in its discretion, to
effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s outstanding shares of
common stock at a ratio ranging from 1-for-3 to 1-for-7 to be determined
by the Board, and effected, if at all, within one year from the date of
the stockholder approval. On December 9, 2016, the Board approved a
1-for-3 reverse stock split of the common stock and approved the filing
of a Certificate of Amendment to the Restated Certificate of
Incorporation of the Company to effectuate the reverse stock split. The
reverse stock split is intended to increase the per share trading price
of the Company’s common stock to satisfy the $1.00 minimum bid price
requirement for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market.
As a result of the reverse stock split, every three (3) shares of the
Company’s outstanding common stock will be converted into one (1) share
of common stock, without any change in the par value per share.
Fractional shares will not be issued as a result of the reverse stock
split; instead, holders of pre-reverse stock split shares of the
Company’s common stock who otherwise would have been entitled to receive
a fractional share will receive a cash payment in lieu of such
The number of issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common
stock will be reduced from approximately 55,652,323 shares to
approximately 18,550,774 shares, and the number of authorized shares of
common stock will be reduced from 150,000,000 shares to 50,000,000
shares. The number of authorized shares of preferred stock will remain
the same. The reverse stock split will also affect the Company’s
outstanding stock options and other exercisable or convertible
instruments and will result in the shares underlying such instruments
being reduced and the exercise price being increased proportionately to
the reverse stock split ratio.
The Company’s transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company, N.A., will
act as exchange agent for the reverse stock split and will send
instructions to stockholders of record regarding the exchange of
certificates for common stock.
The Company will post a Reverse Stock Split FAQ on its website at www.support.com

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...

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.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.
