Profits Up 69 Percent at Google

Profits and revenue are both way up from a year ago. This, to me, is amazing:

During the quarter, Google continued to add workers at a brisk pace. The company ended the quarter with 12,238 employees, up from 10,674 on Dec. 31.

And then there’s the stark comparison to Yahoo:

Google’s strong growth stands in sharp contrast to that of Yahoo, which announced this week that sales jumped 7 percent, while profits dropped 11 percent.

Methinks Yahoo CEO Terry Semel’s days are numbered, and the number isn’t very high.
