Some crazy facts about Google

Was blown away by this: https://www.tedsanders.com/on-google/

  • After operating expenses, Alphabet earned $34B
  • Per employee (~110K), this works out to be $1.5M in revenue, $1.2M in operating expenses, and $0.3M in operating earnings
  • Per user (~1-2B), this is something like ~$100 in revenue, ~$80 in operating expenses, and ~$20 in operating earnings.

Google has eight products with 1B users:

  • Android + Google Play Store
  • Chrome
  • Drive
  • Gmail
  • Maps
  • Search
  • YouTube

This also reminded me of:
