The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino and health-care editor/analyst David Williamson discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac talks about recent developments in the world of streaming video, where Netflix has positioned itself as a dominant player. In the fourth quarter of 2011, Netflix streamed 2 billion hours of content. To bring that into perspective, that's about 30,000 more years than humans are believed to have walked Earth. Incredible!

However, looming giants like Apple, Comcast, and Verizon are looking to get in on the game. Despite Netflix's first-mover advantage, can it corner the content it needs to survive in this highly competitive field?

Netflix and its streaming competitors are leading the way in a dramatic shift toward on-demand video content. However, it's unclear who will dominate in this arena. There's another technology trend we're interested in -- the data revolution, where we've identified clear leaders. To take advantage of this gigantic technology opportunity, The Motley Fool has compiled a new report called "The Only Stock You Need To Profit From the NEW Technology Revolution." Don't miss out on this limited-time offer and your opportunity to discover this under-the-radar company before the market does. Click here to access your report -- it's totally free.
