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

The cat's out of the bag on many of the big tech companies that stand to profit from the mobile revolution. But in today's video Eric and Austin talk about one surprising winner that many investors may have forgotten about: eBay. The company has grown to be more than its namesake auction service in recent years. Many analysts actually think that its PayPal division could eventually eclipse the auction site as the gem of the portfolio.

These companies are just one way to play the tech revolution, but there is a better Foolish pick, too. The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile called "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that's also absolutely dominating the exploding tech market in China. 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 report by clicking here -- it's free.
