Shares of tech titan Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL)(NASDAQ:GOOG) are up a bit after it kicked off its developer conference today. According to Motley Fool analyst Simon Erickson, this is Google's chance to get developers excited about creating products for the company's Android platform

But there's more to the conference than just that -- Google also has a plethora of products to show off that impact consumers in every aspect of their lives. One new product that Google will be showing off is Android TV, which will have software that allows users to stream movies and shows straight into their televisions. Then there's Android Wear, which is the platform for smart watches and other wearables. Plus, Google acquired Nest to gain a foothold in users' homes. On top of that, there's Google's driverless car. Overall, there's plenty to see at the company's developer conference.

So, is today the day for investors to dive into Google? On today's Stock of the Day, Simon says yes. He likes that, as Google grows, it continues to expand into untapped markets, and it's definitely a buy in his book.

4 in 5 Americans Are Ignoring Buffett's Warning

Don't be one of them.

Jun 12, 2015 at 5:01PM

Admitting fear is difficult.

So you can imagine how shocked I was to find out Warren Buffett recently told a select number of investors about the cutting-edge technology that's keeping him awake at night.

This past May, The Motley Fool sent 8 of its best stock analysts to Omaha, Nebraska to attend the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meeting. CEO Warren Buffett and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger fielded questions for nearly 6 hours.
The catch was: Attendees weren't allowed to record any of it. No audio. No video. 

Our team of analysts wrote down every single word Buffett and Munger uttered. Over 16,000 words. But only two words stood out to me as I read the detailed transcript of the event: "Real threat."

That's how Buffett responded when asked about this emerging market that is already expected to be worth more than $2 trillion in the U.S. alone. Google has already put some of its best engineers behind the technology powering this trend. 

The amazing thing is, while Buffett may be nervous, the rest of us can invest in this new industry BEFORE the old money realizes what hit them.

KPMG advises we're "on the cusp of revolutionary change" coming much "sooner than you think."

Even one legendary MIT professor had to recant his position that the technology was "beyond the capability of computer science." (He recently confessed to The Wall Street Journal that he's now a believer and amazed "how quickly this technology caught on.")

Yet according to one J.D. Power and Associates survey, only 1 in 5 Americans are even interested in this technology, much less ready to invest in it. Needless to say, you haven't missed your window of opportunity. 

Think about how many amazing technologies you've watched soar to new heights while you kick yourself thinking, "I knew about that technology before everyone was talking about it, but I just sat on my hands." 

Don't let that happen again. This time, it should be your family telling you, "I can't believe you knew about and invested in that technology so early on."

That's why I hope you take just a few minutes to access the exclusive research our team of analysts has put together on this industry and the one stock positioned to capitalize on this major shift.
