The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Austin Smith, consumer goods editor and analyst, and Andrew Tonner, technology editor and analyst, discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, they discuss how eBay is giving Groupon some competition with their PayPal daily deal program. The move will produce ultra-targeted daily deals for consumers and will create a credible threat to Groupon's dominance. They have a lot of cash to back them up through eBay's market place as well.

eBay, Google, and other Internet leaders might get 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 named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a "hidden" component play inside mobile phones that is also 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.
