GSBC promises world domination, Fortune-500 position, all-nude revue

Ok, I can't verify that last part, but after reading this marvel of a press release, can you blame me? I know that sometimes I let my competitive nature get the better of me and I feel the need to bash on some poor PR, but in this particular case, I don't think I could do any worse than to simply request you read it. Look at this:

Ronald Flynn then said "using and applying the current contracts and our current target markets we estimate that GSBC will have revenue over the next five years of $43.2 billion USD. Our revenue model coupled with our global acquisitions will help us dominate as we own the hardware and now the software and as I've stated before we want to corner the digital signage business.
and this:
After the introduction, the CEO of GSBC stated, "I would like to thank everyone involved with GSBC for your continuous support and want to make it clear that our initial target market will start in Asia. We are convinced that NET.TV which is listed on the German DAX, under the symbol WGJ.F and in America under the symbol NNNV.PK, will most definitely corner the market in Europe. We will have over the next 36 months a large market share around the world and will continue our quest to become the largest digital signage company on the planet."
Well, it's nice to have a goal. Then there's this:
Later that evening, GSBC kicked of the event with many Thai superstars such as Pamela Baudin, Thailand Superstar Show, dancers, and singers. The event lasted until midnight.
Money well spent, I'm sure.

Forget for a minute that the press release reads as is if it were written by a 3rd grader doing a report on "what I watched daddy do at work today." Forget that every other sentence starts with " Ronald Flynn." And even forget that you've probably never even heard of most of the companies that are preparing to own the digital signage market, crushing the competition into little more than dust. $43 billion in revenue? To put that in perspective, Google did about $10.6B last year, and Cisco did about $28.5B. I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest GSBC's projections might be a tad optimistic.

But then again, if they were (completely hypothetically speaking, of course) preparing for some kind of stock pump-and-dump operation, all this posturing might make sense. You'd have to be targeting a very specific group of wealthy but relatively unintelligent investors, but I understand that there are some of those out there.

And of course, there is always the outside chance that GSBC really does have something amazing cooking that they've been keeping under wraps and will soon unleash upon the digital signage industry. I'd much prefer to see that, in fact, since healthy competition will do more good for the industry than an ugly scam will.

[2007-02-16 11AM UPDATE]: Dave Haynes at the sixteen:nine blog has summed up his opinion on the matter with an oddly appropriate image.

look, they have a new website www.gsbc-group.com...
are they the same as www.gsbc.tv?

Bill Gerba said...

Yup, that's the same company, since it lists the companies they recently bought. And of course the contact link just goes to an email address and the Offices link is broken, so it's the same quality all the way through.

Dave Haynes at the sixteen:nine blog seems to be following the company pretty closely:

Nope. gsbc-group is formed by Ronald Flynn who is kicked out of the board by GSBC. www.GSBC.TV is the original website, where www.gsbc-group.com is a fluke. Even the logo is not the same...

I need to investigate more on this.

Bill Gerba said...

Very peculiar. It would seem like the gsbc-group.com site does have something to do with them. Better Whois lists this information for the domain's owner:

Digital Streams Pty Limited
59 Grosvenor Road
Lindfield, NSW 2070
AU

Domain Name: GSBC-GROUP.COM

Administrative Contact, Technical Contact:
Digital Streams Pty Limited peter.smith@m-cast.com
59 Grosvenor Road
Lindfield, NSW 2070
AU
+612 9416 3114

Record expires on 22-Feb-2008.
Record created on 22-Feb-2007.

So it's a quite newly acquired domain, and technically owned by m-cast, one of GSBC's recent "acquisitions."

In my opinion, Everyone should do their homework on Ronald Shane Flynn. He has left a trail of debt, destruction and deceit over the past few years and has now a greater target audience to mislead. Many have lost money in his so called production companies, the least of which he narrowly escaped a class action suit in Australia where many investors lost their money after he disapeared overseas. He has had huge tax problems in the USA which is why you will never see him touchdown there for fear of impeding imprisonment. He is a master of manipulation and will exploit every angle of law and regulation to his advantage. I have known him for a long time and urge people to be wary of investing any money in any business he owns or has affiliation with.

Shares of acquired company IDST
by GSBC returned for exchange have
gone walkabout.
Found by a very smelly firm Takeshi Finance who will buy them at a mind boggling sum for an up
front sum with banking details.
I've washed all the green from behind my ears.

I recently sold my shares through that firm and was extreamly pleased with the way things worked out. Not sure about GSBC but in my case it took about 4 months before the money was sent to my account.

To Whom It May Concern,
The tide has finally changed! Success is the sweetest revenge. I suffered on a daily bases and let jerry and his other cronies and clowns feed into the GSBC frenzy of deceit and lies! I waited and just bided my time. I lived everyday waiting to write this letter. And now finally that time has come.“Bam” these assholes and there blogs have to live with the fact that what they wrote was just a bunch of crap! Fightersoft and every investor have won big time.
My son is a great kid he knows me well enough to know better and i will thank him for defending me from these jerks who were writing bullshit on the net! It now has been told to me that my ex in Australia was behind the blogs from Melbourne. And as luck would have it my old partner in America was so jealous of the articles and stories he told someone who knew me who was doing it! The English blog came from a guy heavily involved in a company that was supposed to join forces with GSBC but did not. The other blogs came from enemies from paragon who I severed ties with because they did not do what they were supposed to do!
The once GSBC shareholders who were left standing in the lurch with nothing I have personally took care of and made them whole again. And let’s be clear it was not my responsibility to help investors as I was not a director of the company and had resigned 1 year before GSBC went DEFUNCT.....
WHY DID I HELP YOU ASK?
At one time I was running and building that company! I had personal relationships with many of the investors. The fact is I know firsthand what it’s like to be duped and made to look like an idiot. My intentions have always been good and fortunately I could help so I did!
So in closing if there is one person who thinks I have done them wrong feel free to email me at FIGHTERSOFTINC.com I am here and ready to talk!

Regards
Ronald Flynn

Fightersoft technology is being used by mobile operators, TV stations, mobile phone manufacturers and web & mobile portals to offer a new kind of services to their users and generate new revenue out of the way people watch TV, show videos, locate friends, find places to buy and exchange messages.

Fightersoft has developed a number of technologies and applications, all focusing on enabling users of mobile phones, and regular computers, to communicate with other users. With Fightersoft technology users can watch TV, show videos, locate friends, find places to buy and exchange messages as easy as humanly possible.

FS VideoStream is a cutting edge technology that allows both audio & video streaming to any mobile device or computer, using any kind of internet connection available – mobile or fixed – on both low and high bandwidths. This streaming technology has been developed over a period four years and is compliant with PC’s running any operating system, such as Windows, Mac OS and Linux, and also with handsets that run under almost any mobile operating system. FS VideoStream allows users to watch real‐time Web TV services, live video reports, Video‐On‐Demand services and streaming video commercials in buses, trains or in shops with using just a 3G card as an internet connection.

FS MobileTracking is a mapping application that can be used for local positioning; social networking and commercial locations based services. It enables mobile users to see their own location on a map, see the location of their friends (if they also use FS MobileTracking) and exchange messages with those friends.
FS MMM (Multi Mobile Messaging) is a downloadable application which allows users to send SMS, MMS and file uploads for free, just by using the mobile internet. The Multi Mobile Messaging can also be connected with all other Fightersoft applications.

MapAds is a new commercial application that can be integrated with FS MobileTracking and FS MMM. It allows a mobile operator to add advertisers’ locations, and other commercial location based content, to the maps shown to their users. MapAds is a segregated system which allows commercial content only to be visible for the users of the mobile operator which has added the content.
MapAds 1.0 is currently under development and is expected to be released in April 2008.

User Administration, Front-ends & Interfaces
For most Business‐to‐Business clients, who are using the Fightersoft applications to create its own end‐user products, Fightersoft has to develop tailor made software to integrate the new – Fightersoft based – products into their existing product portfolio and back ends. These tailor made developments mostly consist of user Administration facilities – sometimes combined with billing functionality, front‐end web based and mobile front‐ends – carrying the clients’ branding instead of Fightersoft’s, and interfaces with back ends and existing products.

Application and licensing For the Business‐to‐Business market Fightersoft focuses on licensing out its applications. Based on experience Fightersoft’s applications offer a strategic expansion to the end‐user product portfolio of:
Mobile network operators
Mobile device manufacturers
TV Stations
TV Signal distributors
Web portals
Computer hardware manufacturers
Security & defence operators

Licenses are being sold for periods of 3 to 5 years. License fees are based on the intended number of end‐users, specific industry, and the geographic region where the end‐user products are being sold.

License Fees are a combination of a flat fee plus a variable component, mostly based on the number of end‐users. In case Fightersoft needs to develop tailor made integration software, or needs to install hardware, a set‐up fee will be charged as well.

Marketing Consultancy
Fightersoft is also able to provide marketing consultants to advice the clients about how to generate maximum commercial benefit out of the usage of Fightersoft’s application.

ICEEYOO.com
Most of the Fightersoft applications are also available in Freeware versions, which are offered directly to end‐users. Fightersoft has created the brand name ICEEYOO (pronounced: I see You) for its user portal, named “Control Center”, from where registered users can access all their personalized functionalities and download Freeware software on their mobile phones. www.ICEEYOO.com is currently under development and is expected to be released in March 2008.



Organization
Fightersoft Multimedia Corporation is registered in the State of Nevada, USA and was previously known trading on NASDAQ under symbol (FTMC.OB).

Regional Offices
In the first quarter of 2008 Fightersoft will set up regional subsidiaries to manage the roll out of the company in Europe and Asia. The offices will be based in respectively The Netherlands and Hong Kong SAR.

Development Center
All Fightersoft technology and applications are developed by the Fightersoft Development Center, based in Romania. It is here where the ground work has been laid for four years which resulted in the successful technology that Fightersoft is able to offer.


The tracking software is currently running and working with more than 150 network operators from around the world from over 40 countries. There is more than 5000 new places (CELL IDS) discovered everyday all over the world by our current registered users. There are about 3 messages (MMM) sent every second to and from our registered users around the globe. We have over 80 percent cell id coverage in Romania (named cell ids in our database); over 90 percent cell id coverage in San Francisco California and the list goes on!
We have over 120,000 unique visitors to our products pages every month and about 6-7 million hits every month. The streaming software has been downloaded over 2 million times (including updates), the tracking and messaging software over 60,000 times and the file upload portal generated more than 22 million hits alone this year!
The WebTV project (started in late November 2007) in Romania which has scored about 35,000 registered users (this includes unique username and e-mail addresses, profession, age, sex, monthly income, phone numbers, place of residence etc) until late February. The data we gathered will be used for highly targeted advertising because we can generate special reports about exactly who watched a particular show, how long was he or she watching it, and to what channel did he or she switch on after the show – all of this coming in real time and very accurate. Fightersoft is the wave of the future it does everything and connects everyone in the world with a click on your mobile phone!
Mobile Tracking System
Windows mobile 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 (MTS also works on all java and Symbian phones including the Symbian 9.1 3rd Edition). The Mobile Tracking System from Fightersoft Multimedia provides real time tracking and messaging services.
How does it work? The client version of MTS is a Smartphone/PPC (POCKET PC) application that can get the identification data of the current cell in use by the mobile phone/PPC. With this information, the client application connects to the MTS server via GPRS and the server returns the location description of that cell id to the phone. Based on this concept, MTS can provide a number of interesting services such as mobile phone tracking, viewing of pictures from every part of the world, messaging services and the best is yet to come. MTS also supports GPS receivers and displays map and satellite pictures using Google Maps.
"More and more advertisers realize search engine optimized (PPC) pay-per-click is the only way to stay on top of their competition," One of the most-innovative solutions Fightersoft offers to meet this evolving marketplace is what we call dynamic ad management via the Fightersoft software, The idea is to use hard data to find out where the customer is headed and get there first.

The Fightersoft technology technique and monitoring allow them to integrating data to predict an ad's effectiveness, and then modifying the advertising campaign to meet the need. The fightersoft technology allows for constant monitoring, running software that researches one-quarter of a million keywords up to 10,000 times a day and tracking every move the phone subscriber makes. It also tells us how fast the subscriber is travelling and exactly where they are at all times.

"All of these efforts will keep our search engine marketing campaigns fluid and flexible, which is the best way to approach today's Internet environment and mobile phone users.

Recent reports suggest the PPC market, where advertisers pay web publishers and search engines for the number of clicks they receive, is expected to grow 500 percent in 2008. This growth is fuelled not only by the natural advantages of PPC, but also by new innovations and competition. Fightersoft debuts this year and promises a highly targeted and dominant search-engine through its proprietary software which will rival the leaders of Google and Yahoo by using mobile phones to receive all the pertinent data.
PPC Fightersoft mobile data also will have many inherent advantages over traditional search-engine-optimization, or SEO, marketing, which involves incorporating key terms and phrases for search-engine capture. PPC often is seen as simpler and easier way to manage, producing more-immediate results that can be tracked more effectively. This may be why PPC advertising accounts for 83 percent of the search engine marketing industry, according to the Search Engine Marketing Professional Organization, or SEMPO.
The underlying current telephone technology is globally broken! However the fightersofts technology works and stands alone! There are hundreds of different phone models and the Fightersoft technology runs on all of them.
How hard is this? Nokia makes a competitor to Loopt called Nokia Sensor. In the last five years, Nokia has only been able to get its software working on ten of it’s over 50 currently sold phones. And Nokia doesn't even have the challenge of porting its software across the operating systems and architectures of multiple manufacturers. However Fightersoft technology works on virtually every mobile phone ever manufactured and its software is porting every operating system. Modifying the software for each phone's display is a matter of brute-force labour. There's no intellectual way around it. Fightersoft is one of the few companies that have been able to pull this off, but only because we have a 24 year old genius who spent 5 years writing a new code that interfaces with both the internet and virtually every mobile phone ever made. Imagine the major telecoms with their army of Ph.D. hackers can’t compete with the fightersoft technology!
Spectrum Blue Steel has continued to put its money where its mouth is. We have not only paid for all the marketing and road show costs but we have helped in the negotiations with major telecoms all over the world as was publicized in Fightersofts last public announcement. We here at Spectrum Blue Steel believe that the next announcement will set tongues wagging, when investors realize what happened to the technology and who is coming on board as officers and directors of the public company.
How many telecoms are we negotiating with us you ask? Remember our software has broken the mould as it works with all mobile phones and software. This was a feat thought by many in the mobile phone industry was next to impossible. Fightersoft however is and can be used with any telecom company on the planet! Fightersoft is currently finalizing negotiations with orange telecom and many other giants in Asia as stated in fightersofts last public announcement.
The results speak for themselves! Fightersoft is growing and very soon the stock will be affected by the world news that will be announced. Perhaps the most intriguing question is what is the value of this software and what should the stock price be. The value of this software is priceless it is the answer to an all connected communications environment. The stock price should be comparable to any successful telecom company as we can be a partner to any major telecom company!
The advantages of a youthful company are measurable both in productivity and creativity. Fightersofts people are young and work long hours, and they set high standards for themselves. Most people see Spectrum Blue Steel or me personally as a chief strategist for the fightersoft public company. I have seen extensive product-development efforts, and have met regularly with the top executives who are building what I believe is the next fortune 500 company on the planet!
I hope this information and report is useful to you as a shareholder of the company. We believe strongly that Fightersoft is the next generation in mobile communications. We are advising every investor to call the Fightersoft management team or Spectrum Blue Steel and find out how to secure and procure additional stock in this once in a lifetime revolutionary communications company!
In closing you will find my personal and business numbers below. Please don’t hesitate to call if you would like to take advantage of this premium opportunity.
All the best
Ronald Flynn
