The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer-goods editor/analyst Austin Smith and industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics around the investing world.
In today's edition, Brendan and Austin discuss eBay and whether the rumors about spinning off Paypal into its own company makes sense for the company in the long term.
eBay and other Internet leaders might gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has a just released free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a "hidden" component play inside mobile phones that also is a market leader in the exploding Chinese market. Inside the report we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, but you can be among the first to access this just-released report by clicking here -- it's free.
