    GOOG's cost per click down 4 quarters in a row

    goog missed last quarter's eps by about 17% and as you recall goog tanked badly around 10%. This quarter things are only getting worse because mobile has gained on the desktop for another quarter and smartphone screens are still to small to display goog's sponsored ads profitably. Plus, the financial boondoggles known as android and Motorola continue to be the endless money pits they've been from inception. You can even say that the more android succeeds, the more it kills goog's cash cow sponsored ads on traditional desktop PCs. Goog's spent around $30 billion on developing Android so far and all it's gotten for it is a rival called Samsung that now threatens to fork Android like Amazon did. Google's given Samsung everything including its $220 billion market cap soon to exceed goog's own $230 billion market cap--and Samsung's given goog nothing in return except the middle finger. Goog makes far more from even iOS than it does from Android and Samsung. And you call Larry Page a genius? He's the biggest #$%$ on earth.
