Is Googlezon Upon Us?

|

Two headlines from DrudgeReport this morning:

BOOM: GOOGLE 1Q profit climbs 30%; tops analyst views…

SHOCK: NEW YORK TIMES POSTS LOSS; worst period 'company and newspaper industry have seen'…

Perhaps the long-predicted Googlezon media apocalypse will be here sooner than you think:

  1. Iz all up in ur marketz shaar, takin’ all ur reeders…

  2. This is clearly Warren’s fault.

  3. Jake Boone is a man of class, style, and grace.

    ooh – we’re not doing that any more.

    hrumph
    [ambles off]

  4. SHOCK: NEW YORK TIMES POSTS LOSS; worst period ‘company … [has] seen’

    Coffee and good news: a good way to kick off the day!

  5. The Google headline is slightly misleading. Google’s profits are up after being down last quarter. So really, they’re back on track.

  6. SHOCK: NEW YORK TIMES POSTS LOSS; worst period ‘company … [has] seen’

    Coffee and good news: a good way to kick off the day!

    Ah, but will the stuffwhitepeople like guy use for material if they have to cut back.

  7. Jake Boone is a man of class, style, and grace.

    Lies! All lies!

  8. 1. I call BS on “changes that purposefully reduced the volume of commercial” at Google. I have seen their search results become much more commercial recently, with paid results sometimes taking up most of the first page.

    2. I read the second headline as referring to the “New York Post“–oh well, I’ll take either.

  9. Saw a story posted on MSN Money last night that said the two Google co-founders made about $2 billion each in an hour on the stock price move in after hours trading.

    They’ve made a lot more this morning in regular trading.

    Of course the stock is still considerably lower than it’s all time high,

  10. Of course the stock is still considerably lower than it’s all time high,

    And still considerably overpriced.

  11. Google is basically Bubble 2.0 all by itself. Everybody is so thrilled to find something that can make money online, they’re throwing all their money at it.

  12. The profitability of Google is impressive, all the more so when so many companies are losing money. 8 National store chains are in bankruptcy, Borders Book Group is in trouble, Citigroup lost money this quarter etc. So bravo to Google for survining President Bush.

  13. Yeah but the google co founders both lost about 8 billion earlier this year when the stock fell by 40%. Not that they aren’t hugely wealthy.

    I could never invest in the company, simply because the owners are in the constant process of liquidating their positions. I sort of get why a Bill Gates would do it, after his company has already grown huge. But with a fast grower like Google I get very concerned.
