Obama Should've Hired This Tiny Tech Firm to Build Healthcare.gov
For her sake, it's a good thing Health and Human Services Director Kathleen Sebelius isn't working in the private sector.
If she did, the former Kansas governor would be out on the street right now. (By the time you read this, she might be.)and there’s still plenty of upside…
The High-Tech "Gold Rush" Officially Begins
If you've blinked in the last 14 days, you might have missed this...
ARM Holdings PLC (Nasdaq ADR: ARMH) - one of the world's dominant mobile-device chip companies - bought a small Finnish software startup called Sensinode Oy in a deal whose price wasn't reported.
After Saving My Life, This Technology Will Save Your Retirement
The technology I want to tell you about today is one of my best investment ideas.
And not just because it saved my life.
I'm talking about "location-based services," the technology that allows your smartphone to show where you are ... or tell you where you need to go.
It's a technology that has double-your-money profit potential because of all it can do. It can help you find the nearest retail sale, guide you to the seafood house where you have reservations, or get you to a hotel for a good night's sleep.
It can also help you avoid costly navigation errors - and not just in a car.
Two summers ago, while sailing with my crew out on San Francisco Bay, an exceptionally heavy fog rolled in. We grabbed a smartphone, discovered we were off course, and traversed the dangerous Berkeley Reef - which would have ripped our keel right off had we not turned.
And the drama involving location-based-service technology doesn't end there.
You see, this market has finally reached critical mass and is poised to skyrocket.
Best Tech Stocks to Buy Now: Beat George Soros with These Two Plays
Savvy investors such as George Soros continue talking about the best tech stocks to buy now, particularly in mobile technology.
At Money Morning, we are always uncovering new tech stocks to buy, and have spotted some potentially huge winners.
In fact, our investing experts shared in this month's issue of our Money Map Report the best tech stocks to play the hottest trends of 2013.
One of them has gained more than three times what GOOG and QCOM have done in the past three months...
The other one has surged more than 30% so far this year.
And the gains are just starting.
Here's why we're so bullish on these tech plays.
A Tech Investing Homerun
You don't always have to buy a stock to double your money.
Sometimes, an exchange-traded fund (ETF) can pack just as big a wallop.
ETFs with that kind of horsepower don't come along all that often, which is why you have to pick the right one ... at the right time.
And that's the tech-investing home run that I have for you today - an ETF with actual double-your-money profit potential.
In fact, you'll be stunned at just how quickly every $1 you invest in this fund will turn into $2 in holdings.
The Ultimate Tech Stock "Treasure Map"
On Saturday, I introduced you to the "stealth small-cap" - aging-and-slow big-cap tech firms that were rediscovering the fast growth of their small-cap roots ... thanks to the newly emergent Cloud Computing trend.
Judging from the comments and correspondence I received, a lot of you were really intrigued by that concept - and by the huge opportunity for profits that the cloud was creating for investors.
In fact, Strategic Tech Investor subscriber Dionisios S. was so intrigued by that column that he asked me to identify some other "stealth-small-cap" profit plays.
What a great question.
The Big Lie in Tech Today
There's a number floating around the tech industry that is nothing short of amazing.
And it adds up to big money...
Here's the thing. Noted tech analyst Mary Meeker delivered a powerful message last week that turned the industry on its ear.
Speaking at the D: All Things Digital conference in southern California, Meeker revealed a stat that explains the force behind the unprecedented wave of tech innovation that's fueling the market's huge rally.
Meeker noted that people are using the Web to share roughly 500 million photos.
Not monthly, mind you. Not even weekly, but every single day.
As incredible as that sounds, it actually gets better -- the number is set to double in the next year...
No, that's not a misprint. By the end of 2014, we'll be sharing some 1 billion photos every 24 hours, or 41.6 million per hour.
Talk about a tidal wave...
As recently as 2009, shutterbugs exchanged on any given day roughly 75 million photos. So, we're talking about a more than 10-fold increase in roughly six years.
If that doesn't define exponential growth, I don't know what does...
How to Really Make a Fortune on the "Mobile Wave"
If you've been riding along with me for any length of time, you know I get really revved up whenever I talk about the "Mobile Wave" in technology.
The truth is, I can't help it: I look at the forecasts, calculate all the money that can be made, and end up feeling as jazzed as can be about the windfall profits we can reap from this transformational trend.
And I'm not the only one who's feeling this technology-fueled ebullience: The folks over at Amazon.com are clearly experiencing the same adrenalin-driven affliction.
Amazon, you see, is coming out with its own smartphone.
And not just any smartphone. Amazon's entry into smartphone derby is going to be one cool mobile device - highlighted by a 3D screen that will display photos so realistically that you'll want to just reach out and touch them.
Why in the world, you might ask, is an "e-tailer" entering the wireless-phone business?
Just look at the numbers.
