Reuters, reported that YouTube is getting approximately 4 billion video hits per day, as the figure has changed with an increase of 25% since May, 2011. Google relates the increase of Youtube video viewership to the increase of smart mobile devices.
Furthermore, YouTube owner Google also announced some other figures, that about 60 hours of video is now uploaded to YouTube each minute, whereas this figure was 48 hours of video upload every minute in May, 2011.
Google reported its fiscal results for the last 2011 quarter and for the year 2011 as a whole. The Q4 results were a record for the search giant, with revenue topping the $10 billion milestone for the first time.
CEO Larry Page was also proud with their social network, Google Plus. It reached 90 million users, more than double the 40 million users reported in October. This also puts them on track to reach the predicted 100 million by the end of February (a prediction that sees Google Plus reaching 400 million users by the end of 2012).
Let’s start with the financial results. Google’s revenue for the full year 2011 went up by 29%. For just Q4, revenue reached the record $10.58 billion (a 25% increase year over year). Operating income for Q4 was 33% of revenues ($3.51 billion, up from $2.98 billion in Q4 2010) and net income was $2.71 billion.
During the last quarter of 2011, almost half of Google’s revenues came from the international market (47%). The UK alone accounted for 10% of revenues.
The number of clicks on Google served ads went up by 34% compared to last year’s fourth quarter, while the cost per click fell by 8%.
Here are a few other numbers – at the end of 2011, Google was sitting on a $44.6 billion pile of cash, their effective tax rate for Q4 of 2011 was 21% and their hired about 900 new people in that same quarter.
For the full year, Google’s revenues reached $37.905 billion with total advertising revenues reaching $36.531 billion. Net income for the year was $9.737 billion. You can check out the full table of informationover here.
All these results weren’t enough to impress Wall Street, which expected the search giant to do better. Shares dropped 9% in after-hours trading as a result.
Anyway, back to Google Plus. According to comScore, Google’s social network had 67 million unique visitors in November, 15.9 million of which came from the US. In December, the number of US visitors was 20.6 million.
Larry Page also claims 60% of Google Plus users use a Google service each day (it’s not clear if he meant any Google service or just G+) and 80% use a service at least once a week.
There was no Android-related info in the press release.

Windows: If you’d like your web browser to run a bit faster, Waterfox is a Firefox clone built to run faster on 64-bit processors.
Mozilla still hasn’t officially released any 64-bit builds for Firefox, and Waterfox aims to fill that void. It has one main goal: speed. They’ve tweaked a lot of Firefox’s codebase to work better with 64-bit processors, so if you’re running a 64-bit version of Windows, it should give you a solid speed boost. It also updates whenever Firefox does, so you’re never behind, and uses your current Firefox profile, so you don’t have to do any extra setup. All of your add-ons should work out of the box, too.
If you don’t like Waterfox for any reason, you might also check out previously mentioned Pale Moon, another Windows-optimized Firefox build. It updates a bit less quickly than Waterfox, and lots of users find Waterfox to be faster, but Pale Moon also has a few other UI tweaks. Hit the link to check out Waterfox.
Waterfox is a free download for Windows only.

What does a legion of Swedish LAN party-goers and a 120Gbps internet connection look like? Something like this. Dreamhack, officially (according to the Guinness Book of Records) the world’s largest LAN party, offered up all sorts of gaming thrills along the lines of StarCraft II and Counter-Strike to the 12,000 attendees. It looks like the air was thick with excitement, perspiration — and hopefully a little air freshener.
