When investors think of the next Internet revolution already known as Web 4.0, they are probably assuming it will come from the likes of Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) or perhaps important Web 3.0 stocks like salesforce.com, inc. (NYSE: CRM) or Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI); but investors might want to look beyond the familiar names and consider a small cap called Massive Dynamics (OTC: MSSD). Just as Apple, Google, salesforce.com, inc. and Activision Blizzard were at the forefront of Web 1.0 to Web 3.0, Massive Dynamics is focused on the Web 4.0 revolution.
What is Web 4.0?
The Internet has come along way since its early beginnings as a research tool for universities to share information. The Internet’s first evolution was into Web 1.0 where webpages were largely static and users did not bother to return once they had the information they needed. In 1999, the term Web 2.0 was coined to describe websites that were using technology to go beyond static webpages to get Internet users to keep coming back for more. Web 2.0 also saw the rise of user created content like blogs and podcasts along with the rise of social media sites like MySpace and eventually Facebook (NASDAQ: FB).
By 2007, Web 3.0 saw the rise of a deeper level of engagement with more precise social media rules and etiquette. Web 3.0 also saw a number of new technologies being developed to help arrange the data available on the internet and it brought about online communities, virtual worlds and massively multi-player online role playing games (MMORPGs). Important Web 3.0 stocks would include names as diverse as salesforce.com in the CRM space to Activision Blizzard, a major publisher of mobile interactive entertainment products and MMORPGs.
Today, we have entered Web 4.0 where being on the Internet is almost a necessity and the desktop PC with its Windows operating system and software is being replaced by netbooks, smartphones and tablets that allow for more mobility along with an operating system that is in the cloud and Apps that are used rather than traditional software. In other words, Web 4.0 is an era where the Internet is always on, we are always connected and even more powerful tools and technologies are increasingly needed.
Web 4.0 Stock: Massive Dynamics
That’s where small cap Massive Dynamics comes in. A leading-edge designer, developer and manufacture of accessories and equipment for Apple, Android and PC devices along with long range wireless technology, Massive Dynamics is at the forefront of Web 4.0 with its just announced TeliPad device. Specifically, Massive Dynamics’ new TeliPad product eliminates the need to carry a separate smartphone if you already own certain computing tablets because it "adds" a two-line smartphone to an existing Apple iPad (including the Mini), Android tablet or Windows tablet. The TeliPad itself is roughly the size of a credit card and can be adhered to the back of a computing tablet or simply kept in close proximity because it works via Bluetooth while the smartphone function is designed to work on AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Cellular One networks along with any network that supports SIMM (Note: Right now, the TeliPad is not supported by Sprint network systems technology).
What’s great about Massive Dynamics’ TeliPad is that its much more economical ($89.95) for consumers to buy than most smartphones ($400 to $600 range). And for investors, it means that Massive Dynamics is not exactly competing with Apple or other tablet makers because you still need to own a tablet in order for its TeliPad to work.
It should be mentioned that the TeliPad is not Massive Dynamics’ only product as the company has also developed the RANGER MD8 – a device that uses biquad antenna technology to detect quality wireless signal to 8 miles away. The RANGER MD8 Product is intended to allow people living in ourlying areas to reach urban wireless signals or for any application where a long range remote receiver is needed. That product is expected to be available this month.
The Bottom Line. As we enter the Web 4.0 phase, investors should look beyond established Web 1.0 to Web 3.0 stocks like Apple, Google, salesforce.com, inc. and Activision Blizzard and consider small caps like Massive Dynamics as stocks like it that have technology to enable Web 4.0 will be at the forefront of the next Internet revolution.
