Google buys Motorola for $12,500,000,000

Twelve and a half BILLION MONEYS.
My BF was swiping through news on his iphun when he came across this.
Says google bought out motorola's cell phone division today. BF told me it makes sense because Motorola phones have used google software before.
What doesnt make sense, he says, is where the hell is google coming up with this kind of money. I said ads, but that can't get ya this much moola. Plus google has a shit ton of employees that they have to pay.

Anywho, big news.
Discuss:

That doesn't answer my question of how does google make money.
Originally google was just a search engine. How do they make profit if they don't sell anything?

"How does Google make money? What is driving Google's growth?

Today, the majority of our revenue comes from advertising.

Advertisers are increasingly turning to the Internet to market their products and services. Google AdWords, our auction-based advertising program, enables advertisers to deliver relevant ads targeted to search queries or web content to potential customers across Google sites and through the Google Network, which consists of content owners and websites. Our proprietary technology automatically matches ads to the content of the page on which they appear, and advertisers pay us either when a user clicks on one of its ads or based on the number of times their ads appear on the Google Network.

We distribute our advertisers' AdWords ads for display on the Google Network through our AdSense program. We share most of the revenue generated from ads shown on a site of a Google Network member with that member.

You can learn more about AdWords and AdSense here."
