Stop being an Apple fanboy and realize Google is NOT a software maker. They make money through ads. Android was acquired by them back in 2005, two years before iOS showed up. Google is only 13-years old. They don't need to sell anything tangible to be that rich. They OWN the internet space. We can buy iPhones just to use Google services. You can try to stop using their services like their Search or YouTube which they acquired, but I know you can't. Appletard, maybe you should go buy your iPhone 4S today and then go Giggle information on there. Giggle owns Information Super Highway. iPhone is just your vehicle to get back in that highway. Google is the road to that info and ad clicks is that toll.
I am not that impressed, especially compared to what Applle usually shows. And Giggle makes hundreds of devices, while Apple has just one, but what a device. By the way, this profit will be much smaller, if the court decides that finally Giggle should pay for the numerous patents, illegally used in their OS. Besides, it is not fair to earn money by using others' patents and not paying.
Google are monopolising everything to do with the internet at the moment. Google, Google Maps, Earth, Android, Youtube, Mail. Imagine if they had bought Facebook?
In just three years Google will take Microsoft's place in the market...
keep growing google, keep releasing great mobile and tablet OS functions and the market will be yours
Good going for Google.
Gets me more and more uncomfortable though.
It's like putting more eggs on one basket in every Google service I used. LOL. (Me getting paranoid.)
Anyway, that's business. Live or die. Innovate or deteriorate.
No surprise, with Ice Cream Sandwich on the way that amount will only go higher.
good for google. hope they will use some of that money @RND dept. so that it will improve android's usability more....
