-- Apple: Does McWilliams expect Apple to rally to $600 - or even $700 - in the wake of its earnings report this week? Earlier this year, when Apple made its first run to the mid-$600s, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers it was time to take profits and reiterated that view in the fall as Apple moved above $700.  In his new earnings preview covering Apple, McWilliams reveals why Apple pulled back sharply from its September 2012 high, but more importantly, McWilliams' outlines his outlook for Apple in 2013.  Here he shares what Apple needs to do to gain traction against Android with its iPhone, how he thinks Apple will fare in the expanding tablet market and specifically what he looks for Apple to do in the TV market. This report is a "must read" for all Apple investors and analysts.

-- Google: Last April, when Wall Street was all abuzz about Facebook, McWilliams reiterated his opinion that it was an IPO investors should avoid, and stated that anyone considering Facebook should instead buy Google.  At the time Google was trading for $625, and has since moved up more than 12%. Facebook, on the other hand, opened trading a month later at $42.05, and has since dropped nearly 30%. Is McWilliams expecting further upside from Google? What does Google have that even Apple can't replicate?

-- Cree: In 2012 when Cree was trudging through the low to mid-$20s, McWilliams encouraged Next Inning readers to build a position in the stock with his forecast that Cree would in fact grow profit margins in spite of dismal Wall Street forecasts.  With Cree now trading in the mid-$30s, does McWilliams think the investment has played out or is there reason to continue holding?  What does McWilliams see in store for Cree going forward?

-- AMD: Since McWilliams advised AMD investors to sell in early July when AMD was trading just over $6, AMD shares have fallen dramatically. Are shares now trading at a bargain price, or should investors continue to steer clear? What factors are working in AMD's favor right now and what challenges is it facing? What options does McWilliams see for AMD going forward and what companies does he think would pay a nice premium to buy AMD?

-- Texas Instruments:  McWilliams turned a cold shoulder to Texas Instruments when it announced it would buy National Semi.  According to McWilliams, TI was overpaying and he pulled no punches when he said investors should sell at the then current mid-$30 price.  However, when the price finally dipped into the mid-$20s, he advised Next Inning readers it was time to buy.  What has changed at TI and what other semiconductor companies are threatened by these changes?  What is his target accumulation price and what does McWilliams view as a full value price range?

After a series of reports that nailed the market's high and low points in 2012, Editor Paul McWilliams has published his outlook for 2013. His new State of Tech report covers 72 technology stocks and outlines which stocks investors will want to own and which they should avoid. The report also dives deep into a number of exciting, emerging tech trends, well ahead of the Wall Street curve.

Trial subscribers will receive the 126-page report, which includes 35 detailed tables and graphs, for free, no strings attached. Trial subscribers will also receive McWilliams' earnings previews, offering in-depth coverage ahead of key earnings reports for dozens of tech stocks.

McWilliams spent a decades-long career in the technology industry and has earned a reputation for his skill in communicating complex technology trends to individual investors and professional analysts alike. His reports have won over readers with their ability to unravel the complexities of the industry and, more importantly, identify which companies are likely to be the winners and losers as technology trends change.  To this point, no one has been more accurate than McWilliams when it comes to Apple.

Nearly a decade ago, McWilliams advised Next Inning readers that Apple was positioned to win big when it was trading for less than $10 per share (split adjusted).  However, as Apple was hitting record highs in 2012, he advised Next Inning readers to sell.  What led McWilliams to predict Apple's decline late in 2012 and what does he now predict for the stock in 2013?  In recent reports, McWilliams also offers critical insight into Apple's recent weakness and adds valuable commentary on the roles of key suppliers.

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
"At our booth we are showing how to provide trust in the Internet of Things. Trust is where everything starts to become secure and trustworthy.

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute.
