The much-dreaded Y2K bubble burst failed to take place on the turn of the new millennium. Once the investors were completely assured that it was safe and indeed lucrative to invest in the tech realm, applications become a hot topic.

And yes, smart guys like Arthur Becker who were quick to jump on board this bandwagon in the beginning.
Billions in Profit
