Google wows investors with first results since IPO: Part of being a publicly-traded company is that you have to release earning reports. In their first report ever, it looks like Google is going to trounce Yahoo! over the next few years.

Google reported revenue of $805.9 million, more than double last year’s $393.3 million. Yahoo, locked in a bitter battle with Google for control of the booming search-advertising market, had revenue of $907 million in its most recent quarter. Yahoo is a bigger and older company.
