'Google standalone had a strong quarter with 21% year-on-year revenue growth, and we launched a bunch of exciting new products at I/O - in particular the Nexus 7 tablet, which has received rave reviews,' said Larry Page, CEO of Google, 'This quarter is also special because Motorola is now part of the Google family, and we're excited about the potential to build great devices for users.'"

True, but a single source of income also means that Google are vulnerable.

What if after their contract is up, Mozilla decide to go with Bing. What if Apple & Samsung stop using Google as the default search engine. That would have a huge impact on Google's income.

Yes, and that was exactly my point. For all of its various projects, Google primarily makes money from a single source: advertising. Which means it's far easier to disrupt their business.
