The Next Tech Bubble?

Tech land has already had a meteoric rise.  Look no further than the likes of companies like Apple and Amazon which have seen huge increases in share price and market cap.  The most interesting wave, however, of tech news might not even have materialized yet.
The most anticipated companies for possible investors aren’t even trading in the public markets yet.  Who am I talking about?  Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Groupon, etc.  These are the companies that investors are psyched to get in on.
RenRen (called the Facebook of China) has gone public on …

The Future of Making Money Online: Part 4 – Is Google A Sound Long-Term Investment?

Last part in the series on the future of making money online.  Be sure to check out parts one, two and three prior to reading this.
In this part of the series, we’re going to shift gears slightly and look at Google as an investment.  I’ve laid out the case that I believe a shift is occurring in which search is becoming less important (still very important, but less).  Obviously, Google being the global leader in search for years now, this would have a very large impact on their business if …

What Does The Future Hold For Apple & The iPad?

Apple, Inc. (AAPL) is the most widely followed stock in the world.  No company has the fans and the following that Apple has for both its products and its stock.  Truly, it’s an incredible company.  As an investor, I tend to be a bit cautious about any company with such a high degree of popularity.  It’s tough to get stocks that are so incredibly popular at bargain prices or at a point that represents good value (unless of course you bought below $100 a couple years ago amidst the Steve …

The Ideal Three Man Team To Launch A Website

As you know I consider myself somewhat of a web entrepreneur.  I own a couple websites in an attempt to make a lot of money online.  Well, I’ve recently launched a new website – of which an announcement will be made on here shortly – and this time, I’m one of three responsible.
First, working on a team is such a blessing.  Wow, what a great experience it is to not have to do all the work.  It’d be impossible for me considering my daily work load already with respect to …

Is Amazon.com’s (AMZN) Kindle Already Irrelevant?

Amazon.com (AMZN) has a major uphill battle for the long-term viability of its Kindle product.  With the release of the Apple iPad – a far superior product in my opinion – Amazon is most likely feeling the heat.  Amazon has recently updated its Kindle DX product with a new graphite finish and a price cut down to $379.  Amazon also cut the price of the Kindle to $189 in an attempt to compete effectively on price.
Don’t get me wrong, the Kindle is still a great device for individuals looking for …

I just read an article by The Street on how Apple’s (Apple, Inc – AAPL) success has not translated into success for other tech companies.  The title of the article is that Apple is killing the tech sector.  This is truly one of the dumbest articles I’ve read recently.
The author references companies that have suffered as a result of Apple’s success: Nokia, Microsoft, Adobe, RIM & Intel.  So, what?  Here’s an idea: why don’t those companies innovate like Apple?  Maybe they would be able to compete better.  Is this what …

Business, Politics, Technology »

The crumbling of the print media has been in the works for years, maybe even decades since the launch of the world wide web.  With a struggling economy, the demise of the print media has intensified.  The terrible business environment has already claimed several victims and forcing others like the WSJ to innovate and find a viable web strategy.
The latest move by our idiotic political leaders is to perhaps tax web sites like the drudge report and other news aggregators in redistribution attempt to funnel funds into the more traditional …

Apple Inc. (AAPL) announced the new iPhone today at the WWDC 2010 conference.  One of the most talked about features will be the video calling capability that they are calling FaceTime.  The feature will require the iPhone 4 (and the person you’re calling also requires the iPhone 4) and it also requires wifi.  Eventually the carriers will be able to support it hopefully.  Apple continues to impress!
