Reedman, Jr. to its Board of Directors. Mr. Reedman brings extensive automotive experience to Integral as they continue to gain recognition in the automotive sector for their specialty material ElectriPlast™ a hybrid conductive plastic, which mimics the shielding and conductive properties of metal but is 40-60% lighter than aluminum.

I will be working very closely with Integral to help further their successes throughout the transportation industry and beyond."

At this rate, we should have more board members than shareholders by year end.

But its sad to note than none of these recent BOD members mention anything like "represent the shareholders". Also, there is no mention of how much stock they own in this company. Wouldn't it be nice if board members had some substantial skin in the game?

What this looks like is another equity-for-services play. There is no cash left, ITKG sorely needs some credibility and some consulting services so these guys are compensated with a position on the board and some options.

Looks like endgame stuff to me.

I thought the 10Q was supposed to have revenue broken out or at the very least discussed in more detail. Am I missing something? This was mentioned several times by management and would be a big let down if they left that out.

I found this to be a bizarre appointment. This fellow seems very accomplished in automotive retail. That's all fine but he has no stated experience whatsoever working with tier 1 or 2 suppliers to bring a product to market. He seems to have sat on few advisory boards but his expertise, experience and contacts are all in selling and marketing vehicles.

Unless ITKG is going to set up a car dealership, what's this guy bring to the party?

Its desperate - not bizarre. ITKG is grasping for credibility so they appoint someone (anyone) connected to a market they're interested in to their BOD. Herbie here was a great car salesman but his rolodex isn't going to have too many automotive development or technology folks. But ITKG gets a little name recognition and they hope to show that they're better "connected" to the automotive scene.

Same with that character from ORBCOM with respect to electronics. Unfortunately, his track record showed a remarkable destruction of ORBCOM shareholder value during his tenure.

How they're going to pay these guys remains problematic according to the 10Q. ITKG is out of cash and running in the red. They have increased their rate of common stock issuance and now they are hinting at selling preferred shares. So not only will there be more dilution but the preferred shareholders will get paid first when the company folds. This situation, combined with the fact that there are more and more warrants and options hanging out there, should keep the stock price anchored even if there is good news.

Not a good situation.

I've been going about this all wrong. Instead of speculative investing from the sidelines, I need to just contact Doug and get on the BOD. It looks like that is where you don't have to do much to profit from this company.

You have cracked the code. Only a select few will profit from this venture - and that few does not include the loyal shareholders. The business plan is 1.) jawbone the product and generate some hope that something will happen "soon", 2.) "pay" the insiders, BOD and consultants with freshly minted shares who 3.) pocket cash selling those shares to naiive investors who can't fathom the junk "science" that they peddle.

Its a great scheme and its fascinating to watch how well it works. But I guess PT Barnum was right...

Anyone know where we stand with the following schedule?

• January-March: Purchase Order received from Tier One auto supplier.
• March-April: Jasper, capable of 50,000 pounds of EP per month, manufactures and ships EP pellets to the Tier One supplier.
• April - May: Tier One supplier manufactures and ships required parts to the European automaker.
• June-September: Automaker assembles and ships final product to worldwide points of sale.
• September - October: Auto dealers worldwide sell the 2012 motorcar.

Sure has been quiet...

There is no evidence that any of those milestones were met or will be met. In which case, we have more evidence of the ITKG business plan: fabricate a hopeful application scenario, bolster the stock price to pay the principals and never explain why any promise, indication or innuendo didn't come to pass.

Such failures all point to a fatal flaw: the product either doesn't work or it has insuffucient value in the market to be of interest.

Stay tuned for the next hopeful set of promises. We have more mouths to feed on that BOD now...

Go lightly, but drive a big truck.

That's the idea behind a new UPS delivery vehicle being tested in Tucson and four other cities as part of the shipping company's efforts to cut back on fuel expenses and shrink its carbon footprint.

The company's CV-23 Prototype vehicle looks more or less like other UPS trucks that can be seen rumbling around the city except that the body is made of a lightweight, composite material.

Basically, it's a plastic truck.

The composite body panels cut the truck's weight by about 1,000 pounds.

Plastic? composite? aren`t they the raw materials ITLG screws with in order to make Electriplast? And the stuff that really conducts the electricity.....that`s metal.

Composite body panels on a UPS truck don`t need to conduct electricity. What`s your point?

The "point" is the basic junk science a previous poster referred to.

UPS trucks will soon be plastic and Electiplast is a plastic THEREFORE UPS trucks will soon be made out of Electriplast!


Metal is a conductor and Electriplast is a conductor THEREFORE all metal will be replaced by Electriplast!

Don't be troubled by details like mechanical or electrical properties and certainly don't concern yourself with cost, price or value-in-use. Just buy ITKG before it goes to the moon (soon).

Well, since the Company doesn't communicate what's "really" going on, I'm left to speculate. I'm choosing to speculate on conductive plastic trucks - why you ask, I have no clue, it just sounded cool. I'm starting to embrace management's thinking....

Looks like this may be the end.

The company's out of cash, there's no income on the horizon and there's a ton of selling pressure with thousands of warrants and options out there (along with the company needing to print more shares). As a result, we've seen the share price drop 30% in a month.

The company has been very, very quiet. Nothing on Mo's results, nothing on the 2012 automotive contract. Not even any buzz. Could it be that everyone has been let go?

And insider Dickie Blumberg is selling. What does he know that we don't? Could be that PK's "other shoe has dropped"....
