Mobile ads are "the only advertising medium available continuously all day," says Millennial Media CEO Paul Palmieri, making a bull case for a platform whose effectiveness has been questioned due to concerns about tiny displays and the ability to turn clicks into purchases. Palmieri notes mobile still only accounts for 1% of ad spend, in spite of accounting for 10% of media consumption - it might not be necessary for that gap to be eliminated for the market to grow rapidly
Google Inc.'s market capitalization recently pulled even with Microsoft Corp. for the first time, fueled by good news about Google's online-ad business and missteps from its top competitors. But as the Internet giant holds its annual partners meeting and reports quarterly earnings this week, several question marks hang over the company.
Google has been on quite a tear for the past year, with its stock hitting new all-time highs almost every day - including its most recent on Monday at $765. This price saw the search engine giant reach a monumental milestone as a public company. It usurped Microsoft (MSFT) by taking its place as the second-largest stock on the Nasdaq 100 index. Its market cap of $249 billion now makes it second to Apple's $618 billion.

In Q3, Technology stocks in the S&P 500 scored one of the better performances, with the sector (XLK) rising 7% in price and besting the 5.8% price-return for the S&P 500.
The 71 stocks rose an average of 4.2%, which not only trailed the return of the sector but also lagged the overall market. What's going on?
Google and Apple is all the story.
The sector was certainly boosted by GOOG's 30% gain and AAPL's 14% jump.
