I’ve decided to start a watch list for companies that are using mobile technology to generate revenue.  This is not investment advice so don’t be a wiseass and blame me if you loose money on these stocks.  This list is just here to give you a sense of how much revenue companies are making through mobile phones.

There’s only one stock on the list to start with.  I’ll add more later.
