Here's what I remember...

I was in R&D but I quit a while ago. Whenever R&D produced something, the people in operations would ask if it could do this or that. The guys in operations thought they were clever by poking (insignificant) holes in what R&D have produced. The guys... read more

New intraday low of $2.09! WFT stock getting soo close to that $2.00 mark. $1.99 and it is bye bye for sure. Anyone who thinks WFT can pull out a good earnings report is ludicrous. More sell off's of important product lines, more layoff will cost so... read more
