My, My -- how far things have come since the invention of the light bulb. Speaking of light bulbs, Thomas Edison did not actually have anything to with it until a year AFTER Joseph Swan had gotten a patent in Britain. Swan had actually unveiled his carbon filament bulb in New Castle 10 years before Edison 'invented' the light bulb. Courts upheld Swan's patent and forced Edison to make Swan a partner in his power company, a company which later became known as General Electric or GE. Now the world is powered by electricity and GE has global competition.

The process of electricity has ventured far beyond anything Thomas Edison could have imagined. Imagine what he would think if he suddenly appeared in today's world with our laptops, big screen T.V.s, medical imaging machines and the thousands of varieties of the original light bulb which now can last up to 10,000 hours compared to his 1,500 hour bulbs.

Integrated Devices Ltd. (NASDAQ: IDTI) stocks were down $0.2 to $7.39, a change of -2.64% on trading volumes of 1,302,987, just $0.54 above the 52 week low of $6.94. Earlier this month Integrated Devices announced its new family of switching solutions, the first PCIe family to specifically targeting high-performance data and control plane interconnect requirements for communications applications. Mario Montana said, "IDT is already a strategic silicon partner within the communications industry, providing our customers with innovations in network search accelerators, flow control management devices and timing solutions. We work closely with communications system architects to introduce them to optimized PCIe switching solutions that can solve their key interconnect challenges while still enabling throughput scalability, low power consumption and system cost points previously unavailable from their existing technologies."

SiRF Technology Holdings (NASDAQ: SIRF) fell $0.14 (-0.96) to $14.44, on volumes of 619,175, just barely above the 52 week low of $14.25. No connectivity or downloads are required for SiRF's latest SiRFInstantFix which was announced earlier this month. SiRFInstantFixII achieves GPS start-ups in as little as 5 seconds and works with both SiRFstarIII GPS receivers and SiRFatlas & SiRFtitan SoC navigation processors. SiRFInstantFixII is specifically designed for consumers using non-connected devices where network-based updates are not feasible. SiRFInstantFixII updates automatically as soon as it is turned on and continuously refines its calculations using data from satellites. "We are very excited about the positive effect that SiRFInstantFixII will have on the PND user experience. Through our close alliance with SiRF, we look forward to bringing more innovative technologies to market and helping consumers to enrich their life and the way they see the world," said Samuel Wang, President of Mio Technology.

Kulicke & Soffa Ind (NASDAQ: KLIC) were down $0.11 (-2.04%) to $5.28 in trading early Thursday, on a share volume of 294,406, only $0.03 off the 52 week low of $5.25. Although fourth quarter revenue was down 9% from third quarter revenue, and 14% from the same quarter in 2006, new product revenue was up 12% from the third quarter and a whopping 127% from the revenue reported in the fourth quarter of 2006. Overall, 2007 new product revenue was up 99% over that of 2006. Lattice's President and Chief Executive Officer Steve Skaggs says, "Entering the new year, we are seeing increased levels of business activity and thus expect to sequentially grow revenue in the first quarter." K&S's 90-nanometer LatticeXP2™ non-volatile FPGA family was chosen as a 'Hot 100' product for 2007 by EDN Magazine. This coveted recognition is bestowed by the editors of EDN on products they feel are especially noteworthy.

After witnessing the recent plunge in the markets influenced by the resource sector, the falling housing slump and employment issues, smart investors and hedge funds are shifting interests into other sectors.

The markets are changing and investors are scared. The Bull Run that we have been used to over the past four years is starting to become more like a stampede in the other direction.

Stock markets are normally volatile, but investors have enjoyed a four-year run of below normal volatility and steady upward movement. Ups and downs, yes. But the Bull Run has been great over the past three to four years and has not ended as abruptly as many have predicted.

But while the end of the Bull Run has been predicted for more than a year, long-term investors shouldn't be worried. Of course, only if you know what you are doing.

First off, don't throw all your eggs into one basket.

Secondly, and most importantly, pick winners that last.

And pick winners that have little effect against the daily ups and downs of the economy. Visit to sign up free to receive your Special Report #1 and #2 for information on how to combat the markets or visit for your free subscription and BONUS reports.

We've seen oil markets spike, we've seen oil markets fall. We've seen wars, we've seen terrorist attacks. Chances are that the events that occur have a short term impact when you consider the overall factors of a 5-year forecast. We need to learn to take advantage of these economic factors. Think of homeland security.

Most investors -- and unfortunately far too many brokers -- go on a buying spree the minute a rally starts in a particular sector. Correspondingly, they panic at the first sign of a downturn and tend to sell off some great stocks -- right before the dead cat bounces.

But Maybach isn't about day-trading and making money fast. It's about being patient and learning the secret of how to get rich slowly. Visit to receive two Special Reports -- free when you sign up! Or visit for your free subscription and BONUS reports.

It's also about adding stocks to your portfolio that have little or no effect against the state of the economy.

The world as we know it has changed. Gone are the days of tradition and old school values. The entertainment industry is booming with the new technology in flat panel TVs. Take a look at some of the most recent headlines and you'll also see that the movies are setting box office records. Visit under our focus section to receive a free report on this sector.

Another sector we need to be focusing on right now is homeland security -- for obvious reasons of course. Visit under our focus section to receive yet another free report on this sector.
