One maxim about investing in the tech sector is that popular products this year may be obsolete next year. Recognizing the trends in technology can provide investors with enormous gains, especially if they can identify the new technology well before the market gets wind of it.A case in point: flat-panel display technology that outperforms liquid-crystal display (LCD) and plasma. The new technology is called organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) and it's currently being tested by Samsung and Toshiba. While still in early development, OLED technology is impressive, with the screens coming in thinner than anything currently on the market and requiring much less energy to operate.
