The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series in which technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino discuss topics across the investing world.

Spun-off from travel giant Expedia in December, travel review site TripAdvisor recently reported its first quarterly earnings as a publicly traded company. The company produced fantastic growth rates in an industry not known for its growth potential. Can it keep the strong momentum going? Should investors stay interested? Andrew weighs in on TripAdvisor's earnings and what to expect from the company going forward.

Big tech names might gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is that they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a market leader in the exploding Chinese market. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend.
