Google’s awesome Q2- Google reported  revenues of $9.03 billion for Q2 last week, representing a 32% growth year over year. Here are the details from Google’s press release:
Google Plus reaches 10 million users- Google CEO Larry Page confirmed  earlier rumors during the company’s quarterly earnings announcement on Thursday that its new social networking site Google Plus has reached over 10 million users. Page also stated that the site’s 10 million plus members share over 1 billion items a day.
Pew Research releases new data on the smartphone market- Pew Research Center released  a new report last week as part of its Internet Project, which is dedicated to documenting how smartphone and internet technology impacts our lives. According to their latest research, which surveyed 2,277 adults nationally, 87% of smartphone owners access the internet or check their email on their device at least once a day. 25% reported that they access the internet more often from their smartphone device than from a PC.
Microsoft’s new social search engine (RUMOR)- Microsoft seems to have leaked what appears to be a new social search network, nicknamed Tualip. The details of the service were found on a Microsoft owned domain, Socl.com, and were quickly swapped for the following message: “Thanks for stopping by. Socl.com is an internal design project from a team in Microsoft Research which was mistakenly published to the web. We didn’t mean to, honest,” reports  Mashable.
