Microsoft Still Going Strong

Rhyze of Xboxusersgroup writes:

"Microsoft Corp. shares fell slightly early Friday even as Wall Street analysts hailed the software giant's robust quarterly earnings and raised forecast. Microsoft shares dipped 6 cents to $33.23 after the company said late Thursday that strong sales of its Windows software were behind its second-quarter earnings of $4.7 billion -- an 81% increase from a year ago. On a per-share basis, Microsoft earned 50 cents, up from 26 cents a share in last year's second quarter. Revenue rose 31% to $16.37 billion. Analysts on average had been estimating Microsoft would post earnings of 46 cents a share on $15.95 billion in revenue for the quarter, according to Thomson Financial.

Yeah, I'm sure those billions of PC's running windows and those millions of game consoles, and a gajillion software titles that Microsoft made will just disappear tomorrow. Show some respect for the ones that made this industry, idiot.

Dirty and corrupt? Haha, yeah, I guess Sony and Apple never have any problems, and those hidden Sony rootkits, and the alleged Apple sweatshops are what good and honest corporations do!
