I bought some Google shares a little while back, which have done very well.

It seems only weeks ago that I was looking at Tesla at 250 USD, and I was going to buy some next time i had some money to invest, and now they're at 312 USD!

Are we heading for another tech bubble, or is this the place to be as we approach the technological singularity?

Part of me thinks that putting a big chunk in the big tech companies might be a great store of wealth - certainly a better store than a house in the UK.

I can't think of any 'black swan' event that would make such companies obsolete all of a sudden - especially since the big ones seem to be at the forefront of most R&D anyway.

I suppose if we could think of the black swan it wouldn't be a black swan :)

Google seem to be busy diversifying at a rate of knots, but they're not paying dividends yet. I'm fairly confident that they'll be around in 50 years so I'm happy they're a growth play, but Stanley Kubrick put Pan Am in 2001 and he was smarter than I am. Anything can happen.

Tesla I'm less sure of. I'm oscillating between thinking it's the investment opportunity if a lifetime, and a total con.

Time will tell I suppose, I'll probably watch them for years waiting to buy into a dip, as they slowly climb up to 10,000 USD a share. xD

Yeah with Tesla I'm not sure if part of the valuation is the current fame of Elon Musk. If he ceases to be flavor of the month for whatever reason that could have an impact.

I think they're close to a binary bet myself. Either they're going to be worth nothing or they're going to dominate the premium car market globally in the way Apple do with phones. I don't really see a middle ground as being possible. On that basis, if you have an otherwise diversified portfolio, they might be worth a punt.

Yeah, it's certainly a punt rather than a cut and dry sure thing.

It'll be interesting in 30 years to see if Musk is thought of as a visionary or a charlatan :)

      I have various free webmail accounts which google and the other feckers are making generally worse, wanting more info like phone numbers to authenticate, less compatible with mail clients, have ridiculous user interfaces etc. I am prepared to go through the ballache of migrating to another service and to pay within reason but would like something that is likely to retain the same address long term as I use it for small business as well as personal. Maybe a 'junk' one for online purchasing and a 'proper' one for actual correspondence. My parents are reaching the age where power of attorney is on the horizon and have unreliable bt email so maybe buying a family domain name and running email from that is worth a look. What say the dosbods tech experts?
