Qualcomm Presents the Four Horsemen of the Mobile Revolution

Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM  ) CEO Paul Jacobs thinks the mobile revolution is just getting started. And he wants to be the guy leading us all into the new era.

According to Jacobs, four megatrends are amplifying one another as each moves further into the mainstream culture. Mobile computing is one of these four horsemen, and the one that Qualcomm is most closely associated with.

Giving a keynote speech at last week's TUCON 2013 conference, Jacobs swept through medical nanotechnology, wearable computing, and much more. He painted a picture of cyberspace merging with our physical environments, and explained how we're all better off thanks to these converging megatrends. Oh, and don't forget that Qualcomm is a major player in each one of these important fields.

Jacobs gave a nod to conference arranger TIBCO Software (UNKNOWN: TIBX.DL  ) in the Big Data discussion, but that's just one small piece of a much larger vision. General Electric (NYSE: GE  ) deserves just as must credit for its "Internet of everything" machine-to-machine communications research.

What sounds like science fiction today often becomes a normal, ubiquitous, and indispensable part of everyday life tomorrow. In the following video, Fool analyst Anders Bylund gives you the lowdown on Jacobs' vision of what's next.

Who else is making a killing on these unstoppable data trends?
Jacobs might be onto something with all this talk about Big Data and massive data collection trends. The amount of data we store every year is growing by a mind-boggling 60% annually! To make sense of this trend and pick out a winner, The Motley Fool has compiled a new report called "The Only Stock You Need to Profit From the NEW Technology Revolution." The report highlights a company that has gained 300% since first recommended by Fool analysts but still has plenty of room left to run.
