Here’s what we’ll do. You give us $10 to invest in Furlo Bros Inc. We’ll then turn that money into $20 – which is a 100% return. It’s virtually guaranteed. If you refer 4 friends to also invest in Furlo Bros Inc. We’ll double your return to $40. It’s totally Legit, just like Hong Kong’s MyCoin. We even predict that if we keep doubling every so often, we’ll become a $700 billion dollar company just like Apple.
We provide a semi-technical analysis of Twitter’s IPO and compare them with other companies not making money, like Blackberry.
We also talk about Western Digital’s 6TB hard drive, teens living Facebook, watches vs glasses, Blockbuster’s death, Mavel’s deal with Netflix, GT’s sapphire deal with Apple, wireless power collection, and Organovo’s 3D-printed liver.
