The market for wallpapers, screensavers and photograph management tools is highly competitive, and if we cannot compete effectively, we may not be able to generate revenues or achieve significant market share.

        Our Magentic product is a desktop enhancer and offers brand-new graphically enriched ways to view and enjoy personal photos. Our PhotoJoy product focuses on further enhances the capability for enjoying personal photos. These products were first introduced in 2006, and subsequently enhanced in 2008, currently compete in the market for wallpapers, screensavers and PC software managing and presenting personal photographs, aiming to offer a creative, personal and entertaining experience for PC users. Our main competitors in these areas include Screensavers.com and webshots© by American Greetings Corp. (NYSE: AM). Competition with these products, as well as the new concept, could result in increased investments in R&D and Marketing expenses as well as fewer downloads and registrations of our product.

        Many of our competitors have more established brands, products and customer relationships than we do, which could inhibit our market penetration efforts even if they may not offer a similar variety, currently free of charge, such as American Greetings Corp. (webshots©). If we are unable to achieve continued market penetration, we will not be able to compete effectively.

        In addition, many of our other current and potential competitors have significantly greater financial, research and development, manufacturing, and sales and marketing resources than we have. These competitors could use their greater financial resources to acquire other companies to gain enhanced name recognition and market share, as well as to develop new technologies, products or features that could effectively compete with our product. Demand for our products could be diminished by equivalent or superior products and technologies offered by competitors. See “Item 4.B Business Overview – Competition” for additional discussion of our competitive market.
