This Wednesday at 12:45 PM Eastern/9:45 AM Pacific, The Motley Fool's top analysts will be hosting a live blog breaking down what Apple's iPad 3 press conference means for investors. The best part? They'll also be taking any questions you have about the tablet and Apple as an investment as well. Make sure to set a reminder to come back to this Wednesday for all your iPad 3 news and analysis!

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Motley Fool technology and media analyst Andrew Tonner discusses emerging trends in technology.

In today's edition, Andrew details exactly why, even at its current levels, tech giant Apple is still a stock he wants to add to his Rising Stars portfolio.  After rising more than 30% since the start of the year, it's understandable to think that Apple's ride might have run its course, right?  Nonsense, Andrew says.  Listen in to see why he still thinks the company looks like a buy today.
