“I’m Standing in the Lobby of the Biggest Tech Company in the World”

Like I mentioned Monday, I spent most of last week tooling around Silicon Valley and the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area.

I visited several tech and biotech innovators, looking for new, actionable trends you can take advantage of.

If there’s one place where tech innovation hits the ground first, it’s in Silicon Valley.

But all eyes right now are on the darling of Silicon Valley tech giants…

We’re just days away from the unveiling of Apple’s newest iteration of the iPhone.

This enormously successful product has helped make Apple one of the great American companies of all time.

Throughout its history, Apple has invented, or greatly improved, emerging categories of consumer electronics. It has done so repeatedly.

That’s a rarity. Many businesses, once they have come out with a very popular and profitable new product, tend to sit back on their haunches.

Eventually, a scrappy new upstart makes them obsolete. Even though the original company may have had the resources to continue innovating, fear of displacing profitable existing lines of business discourages this further innovation.

That hasn’t been the story at Apple — so far. This has been a special sort of technology company.

But that doesn’t mean things will stay the same forever.

The consumer electronics space is ferociously competitive, and no one can rest on his or her laurels.

New iPhone versions haven’t really wowed people like early ones did. Apple knows this. It also knows it needs to come up with something very special to stay ahead of the competition and keep commanding a premium price for its products.

Which is why there’s good reason to believe a bold new technology is intriguing Apple right now…Wireless charging.

Being able to charge an iPhone over a distance of 15 feet wirelessly would be a key differentiator in the smartphone market.

After all, who likes to be tethered to a (ridiculously short) charging cord while clinging to your nearly-dead iPhone?

Apple is notoriously secretive about what it’s working on.

We don’t usually find out until a product is almost released. But there are clues.

I used my time in Silicon Valley to do some ground zero research in the industry…

What I found indicates one thing: we are on the verge of an explosion in devices that will be greatly improved by wireless power.

I saw it with my own eyes, right there in the lobby of the Apple headquarters.

But while consumers line the street outside their local Apple store to grab the latest iPhone version, Apple isn’t where investors are going to make their money.

If you really want to get into this market, you have to look much deeper. Apple is just the tip of the iceberg.

This is a story the public has NOT heard about… but it could be the secret to unlocking Silicon Valley’s next huge growth sector.

With billions in profit potentially at stake, I hope you won’t miss out.

Rumors are swirling around this new technology. It could be set off by a huge announcement in a matter of days.

But my research on this industry is too big for this space.

Continue reading my controversial remarks straight from the lobby of Apple headquarters.

I’ll be keeping an eye on this exciting sector…stay tuned for further updates!

To a bright future,
