At first glance, the numbers look similar, except then you notice that MSFT reported more in profit ($4.3 billion) than GOOG reported in total revenues ($4.2 billion).

Google reported revenues of $4.23 billion for the quarter ended September 30, 2007, an increase of 57% compared to the third quarter of 2006 and an increase of 9% compared to the second quarter of 2007.

We will all end up working for MSFT, mark my words, many already are.
