Does google bot read the tool tip box content and does it benefit having it, in terms of seo?

I have seen SE using this on homepage.

Any ideas?

A quick Google threw up this article about alt and title attributes and how Google reads them: http://ezinearticles.com/?Do-Alt-and-Title-Attributes-Help-With-SEO?&id=432783

Nice article - I would add that this implies that is how the tool-tips are getting generated. If itpian.com made their tool tips in JavaScript then results could vary. – Toby Dec 2 '11 at 9:53
good point I assumed they were title or alt atttibutes – Brighty Dec 2 '11 at 9:56
@toby - thanks for your comment. – itpian.com Dec 2 '11 at 10:06
