Thoughts

1.    Historically, the price of electronics drops on new products 30 to 40% per year. In the future this could be devastating to older advertisers as new advertisers enter the market at lower costs.

2.    Local Municipalities could legislate against this form of advertising in the future.

3.    This product is imported, the value of the USD continues to shrink.

4.    Seems there is or is to be a recession in our future business environment.

5.    Electric costs in PA are forecasted to double after price controls are removed in 2oo9.
