The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Chief Technology Officer Jeremy Phillips and senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker discuss topics across the investing world.

After Pandora's less-than-stellar earnings, the stock popped more than 10% on stronger-than-expected top-line growth. There was only one problem, though, its losses tripled. In this video, Jeremy and Eric discuss the inherent flaw in Pandora's business model, and other players that don't own the intellectual property on which their business is based.

Recent IPOs like Pandora 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 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. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, and you can access this new report today byclicking here -- it's free.
