Some have asked about the plans for the Phantom Game Service and Phantom Entertainment’s involvement:
Here are some answers for you.
Unless Phantom Entertainment, Inc. receives a better offer by September 15, 2008, Phantom Entertainment, Inc. will be selling the assets associated with the Phantom Game Service to Phantom Game Service, Inc. on September 15, 2008.
Per the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, Phantom Entertainment, Inc. will initially be acquiring 49% ownership in Phantom Game Service, Inc. and will also receive 7% of the annual gross revenue from Phantom Game Service, Inc.’s online game sales through the Phantom Game Service software. Therefore, Phantom Entertainment, Inc. will retain a vested interest in the Phantom Game Service.
Here’s a link to the SEC’s Form 8-K disclosing this transaction:
And here’s a link to the actual Asset Purchase Agreement as filed with the SEC:
You would need to contact Phantom Game Service, Inc. directly for information on the company but, since it is a Delaware Corporation, you can look up Phantom Game Service, Inc. on the State of Delaware’s Division of Corporations website; here’s the link:
As quoted in the corresponding press release:
Pointing to the spirit of the agreement, John Landino, President and CEO of Phantom Entertainment, Inc., said: “This agreement is a win-win for all parties. It allows us to shed business segments that are not related to our core objective — the Phantom lapboard wireless keyboard, while giving us an immediate cash infusion as well as future revenue streams based on royalties. Phantom Game Service, Inc., in turn, receives an extremely valuable IP and trademark in a business segment that is poised for outstanding growth.”

ELUSIVE TV-INTERNET MARRIAGE promised by Intel, introducing first specialized CE system-on-chip, couch potato-friendly interface created with Yahoo.Posted in Message from the CEO with tags couch-potato, livingroom computing, sofa gaming, TV internet on August 21, 2008 by phantomadmin
SAN FRANCISCO — Intel has created the technologies to finally weave the Internet into TV, it said
Tuesday. To back the claim, the company put executives from Comcast, Sony, Disney and Yahoo on stage at the Intel Developer Forum.
Intel introduced a “widget dock” developed with Yahoo. It’s intended to create a simple, unobtrusive, visual Internet interface that doesn’t block the TV picture. Viewers can customize it and navigate it with a few clicks of familiar remote controls, said Patrick Barry, Yahoo vice president of connected TV. Developers quickly can create new interactive applications, he said.
The company also announced the Media Processor CE 3100, a system-on-a-chip to support high-quality video and audio, along with Web technologies such as Flash, Java, Ajax and successors. The chip is the first built by Intel specifically for optical media players, cable set-tops, digital TVs and other connected CE devices. It features more than 150 million transistors, 46 clock devices and “15 complex and unique pieces of IP,” said Eric Kim, senior vice president of Intel’s digital home group.
