The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition of the Fool's series "Should You Love This Dow Stock?" Andrew and Brendan look at tech heavyweight Hewlett-Packard. The company in many ways remains rudderless, having no clear path to keep it a viable innovator in the years to come. However, new CEO Meg Whitman has pledged to right the ship and return this once-iconic company to its former glory. However, that will take plenty of innovation, and it remains unclear how the company plans to achieve this in the big picture. With effectively zero presence in mobile, HP needs to make serious inroads into the major growth areas in order to avoid its slide into irrelevance. Watch to see if HP has what it takes in this video article.

Big tech names might gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is that they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology.
