G-Hawg update. No shadow seen = early spring vacations for investors.

In an intense one-hour webcast and phone conference, Google released their Q4 numbers. Revenues were up 101% to $1.032 billion in the last quarter of the year. Income from operations was pegged at $303 million, a staggering 30% growth. That’s on top of two previous quarters that each showed 15% increases in income.

Watch for an initial review of the Q4 announcement in a few hours and a much longer analysis in tomorrow’s StepForth newsletter.
