From the Desk of David Pogue: Microsoft and Innovation.

From the Desk of David Pogue: Microsoft and Innovation.: “David Pogue's editorial susinctly and rationally gets to the crux of the matter of why Microsoft bothers us so.” [as in] “Instead, according to an article this week in The Financial Times, the numbers tell the real story: Microsoft’s Xbox game division lost $177 million last quarter, its MSN online service lost $97 million, its application-software division lost $68 million, and its palmtop division lost $33 million. The only profits at Microsoft, in fact, came form its Windows monopoly money: $2.84 billion. (If there’s any doubt that Microsoft is abusing its monopoly, that’s an 85 percent profit margin.)” [Archipelago]
