Aridian,

If I may put my thoughts on the table, and I am just moving from kindergarden to the first grade in this area. As you know, technology moves so fast that there will probably always be a few companies that are forging ahead with new breakthroughs and products. We weren't around for the railroad boom or the industrial revolution, but this technology revolution seems to be endless. But my education in any tech feild is pretty much nill.

One thing that keeps coming back, in my mind, is the Gulf War. In 1990 when we attacked Iraq, our war technology was so much more advanced than anyone else's, it was a wipeout. Two years ago, when we bombed again, the technology we had, made the 1990 stuff seem like old hat.

This, most of all, shows me that technology is here to stay. It's too bad that it takes war to bring out the best that a country has to offer, but that is the way that it has been since the beginning of mankind. I'm not saying that we need a new skirmish here and there to test our new stuff, but don't count it out.

What I'm trying to say, is that, now more than ever, a technological advantage over an opponent, weather it be war or business, will have each side putting all their resources into succeeding. So I truly believe that we are still in the infancy of the "tech boom".

This is why I am totally invested in tech stocks for the foreseeable future, although we must stay on top of any new developments. Because, it seems that the future is coming to us faster and faster.

Hope I made some sense, and have a great weekend,
stibbles :)
