    A man smokes a cigarette outside The London Stock ExchangeBy Carolyn Cohn LONDON (Reuters) - European stocks dipped on Thursday as disappointing earnings from U.S. tech heavyweights Google and IBM dampened the previous session's upbeat tone on Wall Street, and the dollar weakened on dovish remarks from the Federal Reserve. Google Inc fell as much as 6 percent after first-quarter revenue fell short of Wall Street targets and margins narrowed as its ads prices decline persisted. Shares in IBM Corp fell as much as 4 percent after the world's largest technology services company reported its lowest quarterly revenue for five years as it struggles with falling demand for storage and server products. European stocks fell 0.14 percent, with upcoming Easter holidays, profit warnings from French spirits maker Remy Cointreau and German business software maker SAP and tensions over Ukraine also weighing.

    Surfboards lean against a wall at the Google office in Santa MonicaBy Alexei Oreskovic and Noel Randewich SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Disappointing results from Google Inc and IBM may unnerve investors shaken by a strong recent selloff in tech stocks, underscoring the challenges the Internet and IT sectors face as corporate report cards come due in coming weeks. IBM blamed weak hardware sales for its lowest quarterly revenue in five years, worsened by an 11 percent slide in overall sales in emerging markets including China, Brazil, Russia and India. Like IBM, they have struggled to grow their businesses, particularly in China, whose economy is down-shifting after years of hyper-growth.
