Google Still Worth $100 Billion

Google watcher Steve Arnold is hawking a $640 book about how Google is poised to bring in $100 billion yearly (more than five times its current revenue). He's said that before, almost two years ago, but what's new this time is that he's saying it's based on the fact that the company is loaded with mathematics experts, not just engineers. The Googlers can build algorithms to come on strong in any number of realms, much more than search, he says.

Unlike its competitors, Google does math first, then builds solutions. The
word predator describes the approach taken by Google's management team to 'watch and wait' for business opportunities. This approach is different from the
aggressive marketing and in-your-face sales practices used by many companies

NOTE: This post has been updated to correct "worth" to "revenue".
