Google's Q4 2013 earnings call — this is where it wraps up the last three months of last year's finances — is this afternoon. That's all well and good, as there should be some interesting stuff, and many mentions of the word "billions." But it's the (slightly) more relaxed Q&A session that we're really looking forward to, seeing as how Google has purchased Nest and sold Motorola in the first few weeks of the year. 

So. We've got the earnings embed above, and we'll have a liveblog-style chat after the break, so we can all kibitz together.

The call kicks off at 1:30 p.m. Pacific time — that's 4:30 p.m. on the East Coast. See you there!
