    • Making a big ruckus in this morning's news is the European Court of Justice's ruling that deemed a 15-year-old data-sharing pact between the EU and U.S. invalid. The decision cannot be appealed.
    • "Legislation permitting...access on a generalized basis to the content of electronic communications must be regarded as compromising the essence of the fundamental right to respect for private life," Europe's highest court said in a statement.
    • The ruling has significant implications on how internet groups can operate in the 28-member bloc, and will likely force thousands of companies to overhaul their businesses to avoid breaking the law.

    • "If we thought it was stupid to invest in public Internet websites that had no chance of succeeding back [in 2000], it's worse today," writes Mark Cuban. While that previous bubble was in publicly traded companies, says Cuban, today's comes from private investors bidding apps and small tech companies to the moon.
    • Thanks to Equity Crowd Funding, startup investing is now available to the little guy, and Cuban estimates there are plenty involved, and he has little doubt most, if not all, are underwater on their investments. Even worse, there's no way out.
    • An exit, says Cuban, can only come from cash paid out of operations (fat chance) or an IPO, but SEC rules have effectively wiped out smaller public offerings.
    • So why is today's bubble worse? "The only thing worse than a market with collapsing valuations is a market with no valuations and no liquidity."

    • "Safety used to mean gold, US treasuries, and blue chip stocks. Now it means Google, Apple, Amazon, and Facebook," says high-profile VC Fred Wilson while offering his 2015 predictions. Though believing rising interest rates and low oil prices will trigger "a noticeable flight to safety," he sees major tech firms continuing to have easy access to capital.
    • On the other hand, Wilson is cautious on the near-term outlook for the budding wearables market (John Legere feels differently). "Apple Watch will not be the homerun product that iPod, iPhone, and iPad have been. Not everyone will want to wear a computer on their wrist. Eventually, this market will be realized as the personal mesh/personal cloud, but the focus on wearables will be a bit of a headfake..."
    • He also expects virtual reality to "hit some headwinds" after getting hyped in 2014 following the Facebook/Oculus (NASDAQ:FB) deal. "Oculus will struggle to ship their consumer version and competitive products will underwhelm. The virtual reality will eventually catch up to the virtual hype, but not in 2015."
    • He forecasts cybersecurity budgets "will explode in 2015 as every company, institution, and government attempts to avoid being Sony’d." But Wilson also thinks "the hacks will continue because on the open internet there is no such thing as an impenetrable system." Cybersecurity plays: FEYE, PANW, FTNT, IMPV, QLYS, PFPT.
    • Wilson, a long-time Bitcoin (COIN, OTCQB:BTCS) believer, once more defends the cryptocurrency. "The horrible year that bitcoin had in 2014 will be a wakeup call for all stakeholders. Developers will turn their energy from creating the next bitcoin (all the alt stuff) to creating the stack on top of the bitcoin blockchain. Real decentralized applications will start to emerge..."

    • Patting itself on the back for ringing a bell at the top in 2000, Barron's looks at today's market and concludes, "This time is different." First up are valuations: The DJIA (NYSEARCA:DIA) sells for 15x next year's expected earnings vs. 18x then, the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) at 17x vs. 30x, and the Nasdaq at 22x vs. 2000's 102x.
    • Secondly, as a group newly public tech names are actually making money as opposed to 2000 when they were burning through billions of dollars per quarter.
    • The biggest change in Silicon Valley since 2000, however, is entrepreneurs no longer need to take their babies' public to cash out and/or raise massive amounts of capital. And it's in the private market - where venture-capital firms have been joined by mutual and hedge funds - that valuations have become bubbly, with example #1 being Uber's funding round last week valuing it at $41B. That's higher than all but 31 companies on the Nasdaq, and stands against a $17B valuation just a few months back.
    • There are 60 private companies with valuations above $1B today, according to tech-IPO godfather Bill Hambrecht. "Those 60 companies would have been public in the '90s."

    • The U.S. and China have reached an agreement to drop tariffs on a wide range of tech products, expanding upon their previous Information Technology Agreement at a time of strained relations.
    • Eliminating tariffs on sales of roughly $1T, the deal would liberalize trade in more than 250 categories ranging from semiconductors to medical devices.
    • The agreement has yet to be signed off by other countries involved in the talks, and will be discussed in Geneva by members of the WTO in December.
