Google updated their investor page with the earnings report for the second quarter of this year. They have reported a total revenue of $14.11 billion, which is 19% more than the same period of last year. The Motorola division also reported an increase in revenue, scoring a total of $998 million, $150 million more than last year. This means that the company is on the right path. Overall Google is doing really well, recently revealing that it has 1.5 million new Android activations each day and 15 billion app downloads from Play Store. They are also closing in on Apple in developer revenues, with in app advertising working best at this moment. As total number of employees, the jobs cut from the Motorola division can really be noticed, Google totaling now 44.777 employees, compared to 53.891 last year. Google is on their way to the top and this can easily be seen in their financial reports, even though most of their revenues comes from advertising. Android isn't really making money as well as the Nexus devices, but the more people that install it on their phones the more income from advertising and purchases, and that's what keeps Google moving forward.
