Google "Google was scheduled to post third quarter earnings after the bell on Thursday, but unexpectedly they were released around 12:31 PM in New York, revealing a big miss on profit. The company also missed expectations on revenue." I have no idea if the figures are bad, and if so, how bad. I mean, missing analysts' estimates doesn't really say anything useful, does it?

Is that still OSnews?

I see a lot of posts lately which have little to do, directly, with OS stuff. "Posts" is also quite an exaggeration as most are basically reposts/links from The Verge or others.
This particular story can already be read everywhere on the net, from the BBC to The Verge, and has no connection with the stated purpose of the site. Why do I have to (also) read about it on OSnews?
