Google shares on the rise; Angry Birds for Android finally unleashed

by Kristen Nicole

Google (GOOG) revenue came in ahead of expectations, after an earnings report from the company Thursday. With a 32% increase in net revenue from Q3 last year, Google stock is on the rise. It seems the company has no plans on slowing down, with a number of new projects in the works.

One such project is Android of course, which is the mobile front to most of what Google does. Android has enabled Google to be incorporated into several other Google Apps from a mobile perspective, making Gmail, GTalk, Google Calendar and so on accessible on the go.

Most importantly, Google Search now incorporates individualized factors like time and place, to deliver the best results (and ads).

 

Flying warriors depart from beta
