There’s revenue / income from tech sales regardless of whether it generates a profit or loss.

Alphabet likes to hide costs and net income of segments unlike how granular they break down revenue. Might be a good thing since it can shield those segments from greedy investors and competitors. It's also hard to breakdown as I've heard they do have engineers that do work affecting multiple Google segments at the same time, which makes it hard to attribute costs accurately.
