Google is inflating their YOY revenue percentage increase on the earnings call transcript looks like their earings 2012 same quarete was only 5.6% not 12%. Also earnings were good because of less tax rate this was not a good quarter looks like Facebook and Twitter is hurting Google to a point where they have to stoop to lies
Facebook plans to integrate with all websites so if you are on a website you may purchase using your key data stored on your facebook account. Amazon is already doing this and Facebook is looking to get this done they have already announced this. Imagine when merchants have a choice to discount their product to have individual purchase posted on their facebook. If i am buying a good deal i may not object to have that posted on my facebook so my connections can see my purchase and get a discount on my purchase. Its great to have such validation for merchants and they would pay facebook good money to have this info posted and gain great exposures.
When will people wake up and stop supporting this company who continue to ripe off share holders and benefits few. COO getting $19 Million to stay because CEO who acts like a monkey is leaving should be considered a white collar crime. Why do MSFT need such COO in their company. If he is not passionate about the work he can go and MSFT should be able to get some body at quite lower price one who is going to be more passionate about product, people, and work thank money and might do a good job for a change that would benefit the share holder. MSFT board needs to be fired except for Bill Gates. Forget just Ballmer whole board needs to go. Also instead of given Keving COO 19 Million they need to show him the door.
Just listen to investment seminar what a joke. They are trying to be upbeat at all front and trying very hard to push the stock price up. There was no new tech news all same old. MSFT does not have any new innovations. Expectations were high going into conference. Looks like its a big disappintment. What good is a 3% dividend for a stock if they are not going to have new products and their revenue is at a decline. Google is offerering free office suites to compete with word and excel who is going to pay for this in few years. They are not into phone business in hardware with over 100,000 new employees that is crazy. As cramer would say sell sell sell
