Tech Teardown: April 15

On Tuesday's edition of Tech Teardown, host Erin Kennedy and Motley Fool tech and telecom bureau chief dig through the biggest tech news of the week, from Facebook, Twitter, and BlackBerry.

Facebook's payments business has plateaued as a small portion of the company's revenue, growing ever smaller as the company's ads business leaves the payments business in the dust. But is all that about to change? Also, could one big competitor in the exploding message service business represent big trouble for WhatsApp, and jeopardize the $19 billion investment that Facebook made in the company?

Facebook isn't the only one making acquisitions however. Evan takes a look over at Twitter and two big acquisitions it has made recently, and tells investors how likely they are to move the needle for the newly public social media company. Then, a look at BlackBerry, and one surprising investment the company just made. Could this be BlackBerry's last shot?

The biggest thing to come out of Silicon Valley in years
If you thought the iPod, the iPhone, and the iPad were amazing, just wait until you see this. One hundred of Apple's top engineers are busy building one in a secret lab. And an ABI Research report predicts 485 million of them could be sold over the next decade. But you can invest in it right now... for just a fraction of the price of AAPL stock. Click here to get the full story in this eye-opening new report.
