Nerds On Site (CSE:NERD) Director Eugene Konaryev was featured in an interview with CSE Issuer Stories where he talked about the company and its expansion into the US. Nerds On Site is a mobile IT solutions company that services the small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) marketplace. The company has a large team of technology specialists that diagnose problems and offer ongoing managed solutions on-site or over the phone. The company services a large number of Canadian Tire (TSX:CTC.A) locations across Canada and has been named an Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) mobility partner.
“What the company does is mobile IT services to small and medium-sized business,” said Konaryev. “We still have a small portion of residential customers, but what we really do is enable SMEs to enjoy high-quality IT service and support without the need for high-priced contracts.”

Nerds On Site operates in 10 major cities across Canada and expanded into the US last year. Nerds On Site uses subcontractor and franchising models in the US to expand its presence. According to Konaryev the initial cost of entering a city, which is approximately $250,000 for a 10-person team, is minimal when the entire team enthusiastically serves that city. He went on to point out that the market Nerds On Site operates in is highly-fragmented and that there is not a lot of competition among IT solutions companies servicing SMEs.
“When someone asks who our biggest competitor is, I can’t even give them a name,” said Konaryev. “There are small IT shops in cities, and often when you need help, there is nobody available to answer the phone, or you call, and they have gone out of business.  That’s why this is such a great opportunity.”

Cruz Cobalt Corp. (TSXV:CUZ) is pleased to announce that the company has strategically increased its landholdings around the town of Cobalt, Ontario. 305 new claim units (cells) were added. Cruz is one of the largest landholders in the expanding Cobalt District of Ontario.
On February 14, 2018 Cruz increased its acreage in the Cobalt District of Ontario. That acreage is contiguous to Cruz’s “Lorraine Cobalt Prospect” which now consists of 10,556 contiguous acres bordering First Cobalt Corp. (FCC-TSX.v) in the direct vicinity of the town of Cobalt, Ontario.
Cruz President, James Nelson, stated, “We are very pleased to have added to our holdings in the Cobalt Camp of Ontario. We are one of the largest landholders in the region. Cobalt prices continue to show strength and have traded to 10 years highs of over $43 per pound in the past month. Also, recent reports state that Apple (AAPL-NASDAQ) is looking to secure a direct source of cobalt for the batteries used in their products. The supply of ethically mined cobalt outside of the DRC is tight and any new supply would be welcomed by buyers such as all the car companies and cell phone companies. The demand for battery metals appears to be at the start of long term super cycle and Cruz has positioned itself early to take advantage of this boom. Cruz has a strong cash position and we plan to deploy this cash aggressively and strategically in 2018.”

Recently (January 22, 2018) Cruz increased its acreage on the “Purcell Cobalt Prospect” from 671 acres to 11,821 acres, consolidating the previous two separate Purcell prospects into one much larger contiguous prospect. Also on January 16, 2018 Cruz increased its landholdings surrounding the War Eagle cobalt prospect in BC. Cruz now has a 100% interest in 15,219 acres on the War Eagle cobalt prospect. Cruz also just recently completed an airborne survey over the War Eagle and Purcell cobalt prospects in BC and uncovered strong magnetic anomalies (announced January 19, 2018). Management is now working diligently on advancing these two BC cobalt prospects.
Cruz currently has nine cobalt projects located throughout North America, comprising of five in Ontario, two in British Columbia, one in Idaho and one in Montana. Cruz’s five separate Ontario cobalt prospects are all located in the vicinity of the town of Cobalt making Cruz one of the largest landholders in this emerging cobalt district. Cruz’s Ontario projects include the 1,265 acre Coleman cobalt prospect, the 900 acre Johnson cobalt prospect, the 4,980 acre Hector cobalt prospect, the 1,580 acre Bucke cobalt prospect and now the 10,556 Lorraine cobalt prospect. The company’s BC prospects include the 15,219 acre War Eagle cobalt prospect and the 11,821 acre Purcell prospect. Cruz’s USA projects include the 1,940 acre Chicken Hawk prospect in Montana and the 880 acre Idaho Star prospect. These new claims were acquired via the MLAS online site. Our maps and exact acreage will be updated once available on the MLAS site.

Mac mini and the Environment
Mac mini is designed to minimize its impact on the environment, including 100 percent of the following recycled materials: aluminum in the enclosure, rare earth elements in all magnets, tin in the solder of the main logic board, and gold in the plating of multiple printed circuit boards. It also features 35 percent or more recycled plastic in multiple components and meets Apple's high standards for energy efficiency. It is free of numerous harmful substances, and 96 percent of the packaging is fiber based, bringing Apple closer to its goal of completely removing plastic from its packaging by 2025.
Today, Apple is carbon neutral for global corporate operations, and by 2030, plans to be 100 percent carbon neutral across the entire manufacturing supply chain and all product life cycles. This means that every Apple device sold, from component manufacturing, assembly, transport, customer use, charging, all the way through recycling and material recovery, will have net-zero climate impact.
Pricing and Availability
Apple revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Today, Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV. Apple's five software platforms — iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS — provide seamless experiences across all Apple devices and empower people with breakthrough services including the App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay, and iCloud. Apple's more than 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to leaving the world better than we found it.

According to market intelligence firm Newzoo, global gaming revenue topped a whopping US$184.4 billion in 2022, with mobile gaming accounting for about half of that amount at US$92.2 billion.
The mobile gaming market is growing faster than any other gaming segment in the world, even though consumer spending fell last year due to increasing economic uncertainty. The rise of global smartphone sales, cloud gaming, 5G and mobile infrastructure are all core pillars that will sustain growth in mobile gaming revenue in the years ahead.
In fact, SkyQuest Technology Consulting projects that the mobile gaming market will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 11.88 percent to reach US$214.61 billion by 2028. “Traditional console and PC game publishers like Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI) and Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA) are increasingly focused on mobile gaming due to its popularity with gamers worldwide and lucrative revenue opportunities," the firm states in a recent report on the industry.


Going forward, SkyQuest views cloud gaming as one of the most impactful trends in the mobile gaming market. "Cloud gaming services allow gamers to play games without needing to download them onto their device, making them much more accessible. We expect that over half of all mobile gamers will be using cloud gaming services by 2028," the outlet explains in its report.
Mobile games are typically accessed through three core operating systems: Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS, Microsoft's (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows and Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Android. Notably, 21 percent of Android and 25 percent of iOS apps downloaded are games, and gaming accounts for 43 percent of all smartphone use, according Techjury. Even more compelling is the fact that 74 cents of every dollar spent in app stores go to mobile games.
For investors interested in getting exposure to mobile gaming as the market gains momentum, here’s a look at the top 10 mobile gaming companies by market cap. All data and figures were accurate as of January 10, 2023.
Market cap: US$2.06 trillion
Apple launched its video game subscription service Apple Arcade in March 2019. Offering a wide selection of mobile games, Apple Arcade provides in-house game development and features acclaimed brands and game developers. Apple Arcade offers over 100 games on which the company works intimately with creators.
Apple earns more annual revenue from gaming than Microsoft, Sony (NYSE:SONY,TSE:6758), Nintendo (TSE:7974) and Activision Blizzard combined, as per the Wall Street Journal, partially because it takes a 30 percent cut of all game sales in its app store.
Market cap: US$1.7 trillion
Microsoft operates Xbox Game Studios, formerly known as Microsoft Studios, which encompasses 15 independent gaming studios. Rebranded in February 2019, Xbox Game Studios owns Minecraft, Halo, Kung Fu Chaos and Age of Empires.
Aside from that, the company's xCloud cloud gaming platform, launched in 2019, allows users to play a large curated library of games on browsers and mobile as long as they have a subscription and Bluetooth controller.
In January 2022, Microsoft announced plans to acquire Activision Blizzard in a US$69 billion deal — the biggest US tech play to date. With hallmark games such as Candy Crush Saga and Hearthstone, Activision Blizzard has a long history in the mobile gaming market. The company's biggest audience is mobile gamers, but it's also the gaming titan behind PC and console games like World of Warcraft, StarCraft, Overwatch and Call of Duty. For now, however, Microsoft's acquisition is facing major regulatory hurdles, including from the UK Competition and Markets Authority and the US Federal Trade Commission. As a result, some experts have soured on the deal.
Market cap: US$1.15 trillion
In 2019, Alphabet, known widely as Google, launched Stadia, a cloud gaming service that doesn’t require any special hardware. A variety of games can be purchased in the Stadia store and played via Wi-Fi and wired internet connections.
However, Stadia was not as successful as Alphabet had hoped. The company is now reportedly moving toward more streaming technology partnerships with game publishers, dubbing its white label offering Google Stream.
Market cap: US$439.67 billion
Tencent Holdings is the world’s largest gaming company by revenue. In terms of mobile, Tencent's PC emulator for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile allows users to play the mobile game on their PCs. The multiplayer battle royale game is available on Android and iOS. Tencent also owns games such as League of Legends, with League of Legends having a monthly active player base of about 180 million. League of Legends' mobile spinoff League of Legends: Wild Rift has drawn a growing player base as well.
The company is now using its strong mobile gaming expertise to build up its AAA and console gaming business segment in order to better compete with western gaming companies.
Market cap: US$385.36 billion
NVIDIA designs graphics processing units (GPUs) for gaming and chip units for mobile devices. The company has a long history — with the invention of the GPU in 1999, NVIDIA spurred growth in the PC gaming market. While hitherto available mainly on PC platforms, in 2022 NVIDIA brought games such as Fortnite to gamers on iOS and Android apps.
The company now has its own cloud gaming service known as GeForce Now. In 2022, NVIDIA partnered with AT&T (NYSE:T) to give AT&T 5G network customers access to GeForce Now games. In 2023, the pair will extend the offering to AT&T fiber customers.
Market cap: US$129.57 billion
A global leader in wireless technology, Qualcomm has been driving the development and adoption of 5G technology. The company takes credit for the birth of mobile internet tech: “When we connected the phone to the internet, the mobile revolution was born.”
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon-branded mobile platforms power many of the top high-end gaming devices, such as Xiaomi (OTC Pink:XIACF,HKEX:1810), ASUS, Samsung Electronics (KRX:005930), ZTE (SZSE:000063) and Razer (OTC Pink:RAZFF,HKEX:1337). “Over the course of the last decade or so, Qualcomm has increased the performance of its mobiles GPUs by approximately 700X,” notes Forbes.
In December 2022, the company made Samsung the official smartphone partner for its Snapdragon Pro Series, a leading esports competition for multiple mobile games, such as League of Legends: Wild Rift, Brawl Stars, PUBG, Clash of Clans and Free Fire.
Market cap: US$120.37 billion
Founded in 1968, multinational tech firm Intel is one of the world’s most profitable semiconductor chip manufacturers. It produces microprocessors that power many of the world’s PCs and mobile devices.
Recently, Intel launched a series of new gaming-focused mobile processors and graphics cards, including the 13th Gen Intel Core family of mobile processors featuring the company's flagship Intel Core i9-12900HK. Intel calls the product “the fastest mobile processor ever and the world’s best mobile gaming platform.”
Market cap: US$60.73 billion
California-based Activision Blizzard’s immense portfolio boasts popular games built around community building and user experience, such as Candy Crush Saga, Major League Gaming, World of Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft, Overwatch and Call of Duty.
King Digital Entertainment, the department that designs the company’s mobile games, is just one of its five operating units. The revenue generated by this mobile gaming division is the biggest driver of the company’s total revenue.
Market cap: US$34.05 billion
Electronic Arts is a leading esports company. Its video game offerings cover many genres, from sports to action/adventure to role playing to family games. Among others, the California-headquartered company owns key titles such as the the Sims, Madden NFL, FIFA, Battlefield, Need for Speed, Dragon Age and Plants vs. Zombies.
In January 2022, Electronic Arts launched an updated version of one of its best-selling mobile games: FIFA Mobile. Major updates included “a sweeping overhaul and an array of enhancements to gameplay, visuals, and audio, improving its authentic and best-in-class gameplay experience for gamers and football fans around the world.” For the year, Electronic Arts' three top revenue-generating mobile games were Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, FIFA Soccer and Golf Clash.
Market cap: US$18.92 billion
Roblox is the developer of the online game platform and game creation system Roblox, which allows players to program their own games and play games created by other players. The company's platform currently boasts about 12 million creators and roughly 45.5 million daily active users across 180 countries.
According to Influencer Marketing Hub, mobile devices account for 75 percent of Roblox's user sessions, and 26 percent of the company's user base is aged nine to 12 years old.

Early integration of Rust strengthens BlackBerry ® QNX ® and Elektrobit's commitment to the open source community, greatly reduces developer friction and highlights the future expansion of the companies' safety portfolio
BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) and Elektrobit today announced they are collaborating on integration efforts to support the Rust programming language, empowering developers to build safe, reliable and efficient automotive software.
BlackBerry Logo Black (PRNewsfoto/Blackberry Limited)
As a memory-safe language, Rust provides a secure foundation for software to be built on and is quickly gaining momentum in the automotive industry, where mission-critical software is crucial. Memory safety vulnerabilities are often security flaws; research shows that memory safety issues have accounted for 60% to 70% of all vulnerabilities across a range of operating systems. Without these common issues which affect many other programming languages such as C and C++, Rust makes an ideal choice for safety-critical software.

"Rust is fast becoming an important tool for the developer community, and we listened to our customers when they said they needed it supported," said John Wall , SVP and Head, BlackBerry QNX. "Safety is our ethos, and shouldn't be something you opt-in to. It should always be there by default. With Rust we can continue to guarantee our customers a frictionless experience on our Software Development Platform, while not compromising on safety and performance-critical services."
"We have been implementing projects in Rust since 2019, knowing the increasingly important role it is playing in enabling the development of mission-critical systems for our customers," said Michael Robertson , head of products and strategy, Elektrobit. "We have been pleased to share our knowledge and collaborate with BlackBerry QNX to integrate the Rust language into BlackBerry ® QNX ® products and to bring it into a state that is accepted by the Rust community."
Elektrobit and BlackBerry QNX have a long history as collaborators and a robust production proven track record. Elektrobit worked closely with BlackBerry QNX on the Rust project, contributing code, ensuring code quality, handling project management and interaction with the Rust community.
Available for integration with BlackBerry's safety-certified BlackBerry ® QNX ® product portfolio, Rust has the power to shape the future of mission-critical software as well as software-defined vehicles. Meeting and maintaining functional safety standards are becoming increasingly more difficult as vehicles rely more on software and automation instead of simply hardware. Adhering to these standards will be critical to keeping a competitive edge and delivering business success. Expanding the programming languages available to BlackBerry's developer community in a way that not only provides additional functionality, but also complements existing programming languages, will ensure customers are at the forefront of digital transformation across their respective markets.
BlackBerry ® QNX ® is already trusted in more than 215 million vehicles globally and is deployed in embedded systems around the world across a range of industries including commercial vehicles, heavy machinery and other markets. Its products have been pre-certified to many industry safety standards including ISO 26262, IEC 61508 and IEC 62304, with the company also recognized by independent auditors at TÜV Rheinland as with the world's first ASIL D safety-certified commercial hypervisor.
