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

The recent class of tech IPOs that came to market over the past 18 months held plenty of promise. Unfortunately for investors, they also carried their fair share of uncertainty. Now that many of those same growth darlings lived for a few quarters as public companies, investors everywhere have had a better chance to see which companies could have what it takes to cash in on their potential. In this video, Andrew and Austin weigh in on which companies they think are here to stay and which ones investors need to avoid.

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. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is 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, and you can access this new report today by clicking here -- it's free.
