.... Duh.

You don't invest in Google in the 1950's

you invest in Proctor & Gamble, AT&T, Disney, and Oil.

Once the 80's roll around you can be an early investor in all the major tech companies, but you'll have to wait 30-35 years for the opportunity.

You'd be brought up on espionage charges because with that kind of tech if it didn't come from the US it came from the USSR comrade."Better dead than Red","Kill a commie for my mommy".

I think a time traveler would have a slight advantage but it's also possible that the meddling could produce a radically different future.

Don't forget AT&T(Bell Labs), IBM, and Honeywell if you want to get in on the ground floor of computing.

I was getting my initial stake by selling the iPhone to Bell Labs

Of course I'll be investing a significant portion back into AT&T. IBM and Honeywell might not be good investment choices at that point

Nothing internet or call related. So basically just play some games and write notes until it breaks


Pretty much this.

I guess the calculator function would be the most useful.

Trick the primitives into thinking it's an advanced alien weapon and make the world bow at your feet in fear of the alien armada you have waiting in orbit behind a cloaking field.

Alternately fool a bunch of idiots into thinking it's a mystic relic and start a cult. One of the rules of the cult should be all women (or men depending on what you go for) must sleep with you at least once. But be careful you don't become your own grandfather/grandmother or something.


This is well-planned. I like your ideas, except from sleeping with men thing. Thanks, but no thanks :3
