Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
June 30, 2007
(amounts in thousands, except share and per share amounts)
1.   Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation.  The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three- and six-months ended June 30, 2007 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ended December 31, 2007. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited financial statements and related notes included in our 2006 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
Use of Estimates.  The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts and related disclosures. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Effective April 1, 2006, we changed our estimate of the useful life of our computer hardware and software, used in our Service Bureau, from three to four years. The change in estimate resulted from our evaluation of the life cycles of our hardware and software used in the Service Bureau and our conclusion that these assets consistently have a longer life than previously estimated. We believe this change in estimate more accurately reflects the productive life of these assets. In accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 154, Accounting Changes and Error Corrections, the change in life has been accounted for as a change in estimate on a prospective basis from April 1, 2006. For the three- and six months ended June 30, 2007, this change in accounting estimate reduced the net loss by approximately $400 and $800, respectively, or a net loss per share by $0.01 and $0.02.
Software Development Costs.  For the three- and six-months ended June 30, 2007, we capitalized $442 and $887 of software development costs for certain software projects after the point of technological feasibility had been reached but before the products were available for general release. Accordingly, these costs have been capitalized as software development costs in the accompanying unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements and will be amortized over their estimated useful lives beginning when the products are available for general release. The capitalized costs relate to our location-based software, which is part of our continuing operations.
Stock-Based Compensation.  We have two stock-based employee compensation plans: our Fifth Amended and Restated 1997 Stock Incentive Plan (the “Stock Incentive Plan”) and our Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the “ESPP”). We have also previously issued restricted stock to directors and certain key executives as described in Note 2. Beginning January 1, 2006, we record compensation expense for all stock-based compensation plans using the fair value method prescribed by Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Statement No. 123, Share Based Payment, as revised (SFAS 123(R)). Our adoption of SFAS 123(R) is discussed in Note 2.
In conjunction with our implementation of SFAS 123(R), our non-cash stock compensation expense has been allocated to direct cost of revenue, research and development expense, sales and marketing expense, and general and administrative expense as detailed in Note 2.
Earnings per share.  Basic income/(loss) per common share is based upon the average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Potentially dilutive securities are excluded from

the computation for periods with a loss from continuing operations because the result would be anti-dilutive. A reconciliation of basic to diluted weighted average common shares outstanding is as follows:
