Google's Search for Profits Yields $1 Billion

The Google train keeps a-rolling, pulling in more money, more press and more search market share.

All this momentum pushed revenues to $3.6 billion for the latest quarter with profits of over a billion dollars (who says software doesn't have healthy margins?).

While pundits see Google as perhaps the future of end user software, the vast majority of Google's dough comes from good, old-fashioned ad dollars, which are spent in new-fashioned ways.

The real question is: What will Google build (or buy) with its increasingly large cash reserves?
