We seem to be one of the few sites that didn't mention the big "miss" by Google in its earnings, but that's because, honestly, it didn't seem like that big of a deal. The growth was still tremendous. The real issue was simply that the Wall Street analysts did a bad job predicting how Google would do -- which isn't that surprising, since Google made it clear from the beginning that, unlike many other firms, it wouldn't make too much of an effort to give Wall St. really detailed info for future estimates. In other words, the "problem" isn't Google's, but an over-anxious Wall Street who wanted to believe Google could continue to defy gravity. That's why it's good to see that the "miss" doesn't seem to concern most folks in Silicon Valley, who can see through the Wall Street prism to recognize that this "hiccup" has almost everything to do with forecasting, rather than problems within Google.
