GoPro is a great story of a young man who devised a rugged, wearable camera for action video that is the new rage. They launched an IPO today, raising $427 million and giving it a market value near $3.5 billion, as I report here. The question is, though, are we near an IPO top? +GoPro

Is it lights out for Edison's bulb?
My view is the next game-changing technology since the smartphone is LED lighting, or light-emitting diodes. The global market for lighting is a $1 trillion industry. The cost of LED light bulbs, which perform exactly like Edison's incandescent but last 25 time longer and consume far less energy, have dropped to the level of consumer acceptance. I bought a few Cree LED bulbs at Home Depot and they are really neat. Well worth the investment.
I can say all this because I just wrote this in-depth article on the LED lighting market. Among other things, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner makes extensive use of LED lighting for passenger comfort. The technology will influence so many things, including our health, as I report in this story.

Today, you are more likely to buy a car based on the electronics inside, as opposed to the engine or powertrain. It's a big shift, and creating a very big market, as I explain in this story.
