Good seed for investing ideas

These technologies provide good investing ideas. As 3D printing gains more popularity, there might be a need for an encryption technique that would enable individuals or companies to sell 3D images or blueprints while limiting access to the buyer only and limit the number of copies that could be printed.

I also like the opportunities for free education. As college has become increasingly unaffordable, students of all ages are well advised to avail themselves of the higher education opportunities at zero or little cost. Thanks for this article.

"The number one tech trend IEEE predicted for 2014 was mobile cloud convergence. "Cloud is suitable for testing small instances of programs, for development in general, and for sharing the work among scientists"

Rob, there won't be any doubt for that. Cloud is going to be the key player for various domains through different types of offerings. An app in cloud (SaaS) can control many things from remote location and hence a small scale computing.

78RPM, now it's the turn for 4D and 5D. Before the implementation of 3D technology, 4/5D technology got development and there is no doubt that it's going to be a revolutionary changes in production and manufacturing domains.

I hadn't thought about investment opportunities, but you're absolutely right, 78RPM. 3D printing, however, is still in its wild west stage.

Cloud makes so much sense. We're already using it in our personal lives. My email and internet connection are effectively cloud services. Same with my bank and bill paying functions. None of that is resident on my computer. And interestingly, it's safer for not being on my computer. Twice I lost years of emails stored on my hard drive. Now it's stored in the cloud and it's safer -- if not completely safe.

I believe the healthcare part of the equation will also be big. It's amazing how much people can do at home now. People who might have been hesitant in the past now routinely monitor blood pressure at home. And some electronic devices -- implantable defibrillators and pacemakers -- can actually contact the doctor for you.

Excellent post and very informative.  I definitely feel we can all "buy-in" with Cloud Computing and Storage.  That's already well under way as you mention Rob.  The only thing (and I know I'm paranoid) is the security aspects of cloud storage.  It seems as though hackers have no real difficulties in rushing in at any time.  I feel "the cloud" is rife with opportunities.  I also agree that the medical field will see significant increased usage relative to the digital world.   I think we are eventually looking at a "universal medical data base" that can be accessed from any point on the globe.  Here again, privacy is key.  Again, great post.

Rob, you are right about the various email and bill payment services, but how many of us know that it's a cloud service. So far I didn't know any bank relying on cloud for their services. Banking and financial sector are the domains keeping themselves away from cloud because of security concern.

I agree, Chuck. Health technology in all sorts of forms will grow in coming years, especially given the aging baby boom population.

Thanks Bobjengr. You're right about security and the cloud. We're in a neck and neck race between hackers and security developments. the race is likely to go on for years. There are too many advantages to networks and clouds to avoid the race.
