Last month, investors went absolutely bananas for software initial public offerings, or IPOs. No company highlighted the craze more than Snowflake (NYSE:SNOW) — shares of which have more than doubled from their initial price. 

But in the Snowflake-induced haze of IPO stocks, another company caught my attention: JFrog Ltd. (NASDAQ:FROG). This company checks off a lot of boxes that I look for in an investment: founder-led, strong balance sheet, and a barbell approach that seems to be working very well.

That said, two issues give me pause. Read below to get the whole story.

I’m a big fan of solid mission statements. When those mission statements can easily convey what a technology company does to a non-techie like myself, I like it even more. JFrog’s mission is “to power a world of continuously updated, version-less software.”  The company calls

The auto industry has had a rough go of it over the past few years. After a mini-recession resulting from the U.S.-China trade war sent auto sales down 1.4% last year, the COVID-19 pandemic put a big dent in sales this year as people quarantined and couldn’t get to dealerships.

Yet as people continue to avoid public transportation or ride-hailing companies, Americans appear to be turning to owning their own cars again, either used or new. After April auto sales were basically cut in half from pre-COVID February levels, auto sales have experienced a bounceback and have nearly recovered back to pre-COVID levels as of August.

Nevertheless, many automakers still face significant challenges, especially as the world turns to electric vehicles at an accelerating pace. That’s why the best way to play a recovery in autos may not be the automakers themselves, but rather these high-tech suppliers.

Microsoft has updated its Surface line-up with two challengers taking on key parts of the market. The Surface Laptop Go takes on the mid-range Windows 10 laptop space, while the updated Surface Pro X pushes Microsoft’s plans for Windows 10 on ARM

With Apple set to launch its own ARM-powered MacBook, who has the advantage in this new frontier?

Let’s start with the Pro X. Last year’s Surface Pro X, the first ARM-powered Surface machine, was aiming at a particular group of customers. 2020’s Pro X update hasn’t changed this approach.

The Pro X family is for those looking for a highly mobile device, with 4G LTE connectivity, long battery life, and a focus on productivity. It remains a superb client for cloud based services be they from Microsoft or other providers. If your work revolved around Microsoft Office, Teams, Slack, and web-based tools,

Complete SEO Checklist

Yup, never.

Some 8 years back, when I was just starting to get serious with this SEO thing, I scoured the Web for an SEO checklist that would help me remember all these new things that I was learning.

I found nothing.

Besides a list of linking strategies that included profile links, forum signatures and spamming bookmark sites, I never really did find a good one.

It would’ve made it exponentially easier for me to learn SEO if I could have printed out something and marked it off manually back then. I could review it, internalize it and plan out tasks better.

Time traveling to the present day: I snapped out of my unproductive daydream, I put my glass of wine down and I told myself to stop reminiscing about the past.

Then it dawned on me. Why
