NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- When search giant Google (GOOG - Get Report) reported its results for the first quarter back in April, the company's Chief Executive Officer Larry Page introduced the report by saying that the company's three main priorities were "velocity, execution and focusing on the future."With the company having just delivered an exceptional second quarter, it is clear that not only did it hold true to its promise, but it was intent on putting its rivals on notice -- namely Facebook (FB - Get Report), Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report), Amazon (AMZN - Get Report) and, most importantly, its chief adversary Apple (AAPL - Get Report).
