So how did the company do it? Advertisements on good old-fashioned search.

And Google’s non-advertising revenue continues to be a tiny proportion of the company’s overall business—just 9% of revenue.

Google Stock Tops $1,000, Highlighting a Tech Divide |

Quentin Hardy:

Google closed up 14 percent on Friday, at $1,011.41, after a better-than-expected earnings release late Thursday. The jump brought its gain since its initial offering to roughly 1,100 percent. During the same period, the shares of rose 830 percent. Samsung, which makes smartphones as well as the chips that go into many other manufacturers’ devices, rose 760 percent. And Apple leapt a staggering 3,300 percent.

By comparison, the overall Nasdaq composite rose 120 percent, while Microsoft — 10 years ago the most feared giant in technology — gained just 28 percent.

While I largely think the stock market has a bit too many forces at play to serve as a good barometer, at a high level, this data seems pretty telling.

Is Apple Looking For A Replacement For CEO Cook? | Forbes

Is Apple AAPL -0.39% (AAPL) secretly searching for a new chief executive to replace Tim Cook? Some Wall Street sources close to some Apple executives say such a move is afoot…

AAPL falls victim to ‘overinflated expectations’

The Obvious But Hidden Secrets Behind Apple’s Record Numbers And Stock Price Crash | Mac360

Yes, I know. That’s absurd. And that’s how Wall Street works. What’s really broken with Apple? The company’s inability to surpass overinflated expectations. It’s as simple as that. Almost.

Revenue and profits are slowing down. They’re growing slower as a percentage over previous growth rates. Rates. Not actual numbers. Once a company hits $100-billion in annual revenue, growth of 20-percent requires another $20-billion in revenue in just a year. That kind of growth rate is difficult to maintain, regardless of how stellar the finances.

Apple Confronts the Law of Large Numbers |

If Apple’s share price grew even 20 percent a year for the next decade, which is far below its current blistering pace, its $500 billion market capitalization would be more than $3 trillion by 2022. That is bigger than the 2011 gross domestic product of France or Brazil.

Put another way, to increase its revenue by 20 percent, Apple has to generate additional sales of more than $9 billion in its next fourth quarter. A company with only $1 billion in sales has to come up with just another $200 million.

The Apple paradox | Benedict Evans

As an investor, therefore, are you buying a company with high growth and continued high profits, slowing growth and the same high profits, or the same growth and (due to cheaper products) lower profit? It really isn’t clear. More cynically, this is a catch 22: high numbers mean saturation (bad), and low numbers mean slowing growth (bad).

Finally, Apple has got to the point where all news is bad news.

With Apple, What A Difference A Week Makes

With Apple, What A Difference A Week Makes | TechCrunch

But there is a pretty simple way to explain one level of “disappointment” today — just as there was in Q4 of last year. While that was all about a shift in the iPhone release cycle (which led to the perfect storm that was Q1 2012 — which is directly related to this year — more below), this year was all about one week. One. Little. Week.

What Apple tried to alert everyone to multiple times over the past quarter, but few seemed to remember, is that Q1 2012 was an anomaly. It was 14 weeks long, versus the standard 13 weeks Apple uses to calculate a quarter. This year, things were back to normal: 13 weeks.

Just to beat the dead horse, last quarter: Microsoft revenues: $21.46 billion. iPhone revenues: $30.66 billion. Yes, just iPhone.

Ranking the analysts

Another way of looking at it is that Apple’s analysts did worse than the company this quarter, and the amateurs as a group did worse than the pros.

Tim Cook to Apple investors: Keep calm and stop listening to rumors

Tim Cook to Apple investors: Keep calm and stop listening to rumors | GigaOM

Despite the attempts to convince Wall Street analysts that Apple’s future remains bright, Cook’s explanations appear to have fallen on mostly deaf ears. As of the time of this posting, Apple investors have sent shares down more than 10 percent in afterhours trading to around $457.

Apple’s been on an incredible run but its investors are very nervous that boom years are coming to an end. It’s becoming clear that Apple can’t just go quietly about its business of selling iPhones, and this isn’t going to be the last time we hear Apple’s leaders have to make the case for the company’s success beyond what’s on the balance sheet.

The company topped its own forecast and sold a record 47 million iPhones, but nonetheless managed to disappoint: Shares were off more than 4 percent in after-hours trading following the numbers.

As is often the case, Apple’s outlook for the current quarter was less than some investors were hoping. The company said to expect revenue of $41 billion to $43 billion as opposed to the more than $45 billion that many analysts had been projecting.
