Google reported a profit that easily outpaced analysts' forecasts, and the company's shares jumped in extended trading.
Excluding one-time items, Google earned $4.92 a share in the third quarter, on a topline of $4.04 billion. As is traditional with Google earnings results, that sales figure excludes TAC, or traffic-acquisition costs.

Does this mean we can all expect a Google pen for christmas?
I think the only thing we'll get is a kick in the tail, haha. Last year I got a card saying "Happy Holidays" in ever language known to man and I've been with Google for many years and do very well with them...so, I wouldn't count on much.
