Where do you go if you're interested in tech investing, but are in the mood for something other than Google?

Shareholders of Google (GOOGL -1.34%) should have no reason to doubt the company's ability to deliver the solid results they have gotten accustomed to seeing. It rules the world of online advertising, and the tides are in its favor, so it absolutely deserves a premium. However, its price has crept up to a point that may not be ideal for careful investors looking to buy.

Fool contributor Daniel Sparks chats with's Erin Miller and offers three tech stocks that might be good alternatives to Google: Yahoo! (NASDAQ: YHOO), Baidu (BIDU -0.69%), and Apple (AAPL 0.17%).
