Bing’s revenue grew with 9% caused by larger search volumes and increased revenue per search.
How on earth did Bing’s revenue increase at all? No one actually uses Bing, right?

Anyway, there’s not much else too surprising, except for this:

Further, Microsoft expects to finally close the acquisition of the social network LinkedIn in this quarter.
I didn’t know Microsoft was trying to acquire LinkedIn. if they’re successful, I don’t recommend anyone who values their privacy to use LinkedIn (in fact, IDK if LinkedIn is a good site to use anyway, since I’ve never read they privacy statement or TOS).

This is what happens when you put all your eggs in the HIGH end of the phone market hoping that the free wheel spending on GSM phones with providers like Verizon, ATT, and Tmobile will spill over in Microsoft’s favor. Reality check, IT DID NOT!!

It took microsoft around double the amount of time they expected it would take to make the XBOX profitable and they nearly dumped that too!
Without more focus on cdma, and the mid to low grade segments of the market, they will not be profitable.
