asta e cu dedicatie pentru KB care imi tinea teorii pe mess, nu de mult, despre cum politica google cu totul open si (majoritatea) free nu are cum sa produca profit pe termen lung. pe langa alte teorii de genul: ei nu fac bani deloc, ei sunt blegi, vai de capul lor, etc.

It's everybody's favorite time of year. Yup, the Q2 earnings results are coming in, and Google's leading the pack, reporting $9.02 billion in gross revenue for the second quarter of 2011: a 32 percent increase over the same period in 2010. CEO Larry Page notes, that's a "record breaking over $9 billion of revenue," with net income reaching $2.51 billion, up from $1.84 billion in Q2 2010. Google's various sites apparently made up 69 percent of the $9.02 billion in revenue, generating $6.23 billion -- 2010 numbers were $4.50 billion. Operating expenses saw a notable increase over 2010, cutting into profits by $2.97 billion, up from $1.99 billion.
Larry Page has just announced some Android usage numbers, pointing out that 550,000 devices, rocking the little green robot, are being activated per day. That's up from the 500,000 announced late last month. Android Market numbers are also up, with six billion total downloads.
