In this video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner takes us through some of the biggest technology stories in the consumer-goods sector today. He looks at the recent report on the Chinese search industry and the market-share numbers there, and he tells us why a slight slide for Baidu is no problem for the Chinese search giant. He also tells us why Groupon took such a big hit, what it means for the company going forward, and why he thinks it's part of a larger trend, and he finishes with a discussion about Apple, and why there's never been a better time to buy.

Regardless of your short-term view on the Chinese economy, there is definitely opportunity in Baidu (a.k.a. the "Chinese Google"), especially in light of this analysis of the market-share numbers. Our brand-new premium report breaks down the dominant Chinese search provider's strengths and weaknesses. Just click here to access it now.
