IBM Just Kicked Off the Ultimate Big Data Project

There’s no denying that data demand is increasing at an alarming rate. As Louis Basenese pointed out in March, Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT) alone eats up “more than 2.5 petabytes of data – the equivalent of 167 times the number of books in the Library of Congress!” Then there’s Facebook, which currently stores in the neighborhood...

Video: This Blind Man Drives Better Than You

There’s no question that I love technology. But if there’s one new development in tech that scares the living daylights out of me, it’s Google’s (Nasdaq: GOOG) self-driving car. Granted, the technology behind it is remarkable. But as I said when I discussed it in December, you can’t brave the South Florida stretch of I-95...

Google Fine Tunes its Mobile Payments Crusade

After 10 months in the wild, Google Wallet isn’t exactly growing at a breakneck pace. Only a few smartphones are currently equipped with the NFC technology required for the mobile payment app. It’s only accumulated 14 retail partners that allow users to combine loyalty cards and store offers directly at the point-of-sale. And while the...

Biologist Destroys Cancer’s “Cloaking Device”

In the last year, we’ve covered quite a few cancer-fighting treatments that promise to help stop the disease in its tracks. Like the JAK protein inhibitor that helps stop cancer from spreading… immunotherapy drugs that help deliver drugs directly to tumor sites… and BSD Medical’s microwave technology. And one research team has unveiled another breakthrough...

Heart Transplants of the Future Won’t Require a Pulse

After five heart attacks and 20 months of waiting for an eligible donor, former Vice President Dick Cheney received a heart transplant on Saturday. Part of the reason he was able to hold out so long (the average waiting time is 250 days) was because of a special device that took over the left ventricle’s...

Must-See Treatment Makes Burn Scars Disappear

On Wednesday, I mentioned that Organovo (OTCQB: ONVO) – a groundbreaking company that both Louis Basenese and I have covered before – went public recently. Well, now it’s Avita Medical’s turn. I alerted Wall Street Daily readers to this opportunity in November while it was trading on the Australian Exchange (ASX) under the ticker symbol AVH....

Meet the Pandora of Online Retail

If you’re like me, when you buy clothes online you check the return policy first. Because you know that shirt probably isn’t going to fit how you want. With that in mind, you might think that more clothing purchases are performed in stores than online. But strangely enough, 65.9% of clothes were bought over the...

The Most Innovative 3-D Printing Company, Hands Down

If I had to choose one company in the broad 3-D printing space that has me the most pumped about the prospects of the technology, it’d be Organovo. I first wrote about this San Diego-based company’s groundbreaking organ printing technology back in June. And Chief Investment Strategist, Louis Basenese, followed up with his own take...

PayPal’s Small Business Solution Under the Microscope

It seems that a new mobile payment solution is hitting the market each week. For instance, I recently mentioned that PayPal was laying the groundwork for its own point-of-sale platform for larger retailers. If you recall, PayPal didn’t go with the increasingly popular near-field communication (NFC) technology for this solution. Instead, users enter a phone...

This Weapon Has Never Been Used in War Zones, But Should Be

Forget rubber bullets, beanbag rounds, or even the advanced non-lethal ShockRounds I wrote about last month. The Active Denial System – developed by Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) with $40 million in funding from the Pentagon – offers an entirely new form of crowd control that’s even less lethal than current methods. But it’s just as effective...
