|Hamsterwheek started something like a Phorm here:
|Great guy Dorman - created Sprint singlehandedly !|
|New thread to recognise the change in ticker, with graphs etc
|Another good day! How about starting another thread on the Phorm site HW? That way we can leave the doubting thomas' here to their shorting (dis)content.|
|Up again :-)|
|If Google object they are welcome to take Phorm over.|
|I would have thought there is also going to be one hell of an issue with destination sites and possibly Google about their content being interrupted.|
|Here you are - look I'm doing your research for you now HW !

Take the Tour
I clicked to take the tour.
It models you doing a Google search and then when you click on the search result, you get an advert before your destination appears.
It shows you clicking to get to Fodors.com and then up pops an advert for Expedia - INTERRUPTING your expectation of arriving straight away at what you clicked on.
The key question for this I think is - how will searchers react to being delayed in reaching their destination by an advert which they have to either 'skip' or 'close' ?? After all, we've got used to zipping along through searches at a fair old rate haven't we ?
In web-design now, the 'skip' instructions for flash websites are dying out, because designers know that visitors get well p.....d off and with most sites just want to get to the site.
If you've got a clever games or arty site, or that sort of thing, then the flash introduction is quite fun. On a commercial site its just a wind up.
I find it absolutely bizarre that any ISP, boasting about their broadband speed would then sign up to have adverts interrupt and slow down the search process.
imo that is not the solution to the free broadband problem that they have.
To be fair, the demo does say that the adverts will be highly selective.
But just how selective do you have to be, not to wind everyone up ?|
|Lots of new brands on the way - this is gonne fly !|
|121Media is now known as Phorm
We are delighted to announce that 121Media has been rebranded as
The Phorm name became official on Thursday May 3. We will introduce the brand, via our website and other communications, during the week commencing 7 May. The other new brands associated with the Open Internet Exchange (OIX) will be unveiled over the coming months.
Our company has experienced rapid evolution since its IPO in 2004. We have continued to develop our technology, recruit new talent and experience to our team and forge deeper relationships with our partners. The decision to rebrand was inspired by these changes and by our fast-growing international opportunities.|
|Did they say why they've done it anywhere ?|
|One trade gone through so far today - 11k at over £17.
Obviously the new name is more popular than the shorters hoped !|

|Yup - PHRM. Price seems unchanged, as you'd expect.|
|Is the new ticker PHRM? Not getting a price this morning.|
|good call on this one very hairy - its done you well! :-)|
|Right............ keep taking the pills|
|You'll be glad to know that I've discovered a theory why 121's price has held up. Most mornings when you go to ADVFN's front page, OTO is the first epic shown on the volume leaders (and quite often on the risers), before the system updates.
Therefore a huge number of investors will have come to have a look at the company out of curiosity and amongst them there will be a good selection of high risk, blue sky investors ! Simple. Nice free PR.
If they are going to change the epic, I predict a painful slide in the price.
There we are, thats the best I can do this morning, but many a true word etc
|Phorm is a very silly badly thought out name. I'm surprised they didn't call the company Phishing!
Secondly why on earth would they waste considerable money changing the company's name when they don't have enough working capital to last 12 months?
|You phorm your opinion, I'll phorm mine.
Price ticking up again I see ;-)|
