-- companies that are.
Producing innovations that will matter a great deal in the coming years still doesn't sit and I'm sorry doesn't necessarily it doesn't doesn't mean they're good investment -- -- I'm -- it and we've seen good investments because our quick I don't wanna say Research in Motion but -- -- Research in Motion.
