This scene has always reminded me of an old, poor, rundown part of a Mediterranean village. Or maybe the backside of Venice.
I suspect it's a multi-million dollar Manly view.

More mega profits for a privileged few

Whilst Google made the headlines last week with their US$1.3 billion PROFIT they are still way behind the behemoth that is Microsoft which earned US$4.41 billion PROFIT for the quarter (i.e., in THREE months).

Microsoft's profit was larger than Google's revenue!

Apple did OK, US$1.05 billion profit for around 12 weeks hard labour.
In comparison Yahoo! looks like it's just playing, a mere (!) US$542.2 profit for 84 days in front of the steaming hot computer.
