  • The simple, fundamental factor that determines whether a tech company will make it or not and how Apple and Amazon (AMZN) have nailed this.
  • How the current big trend in tech (Cloud Computing) is ushering in the next big trend (The Internet of Things) and how it could one day save your life.
  • What happens when tech replaces jobs and dealing with the fact that tech is naturally deflationary.
