Microsoft Corp. today announced revenue of $13.76 billion for the quarter ended September 30, 2007, a 27% increase over the same period of the prior year. Operating income, net income and diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $5.92 billion, $4.29 billion and $0.45, respectively.
At first glance, the numbers look similar, except then you notice that MSFT reported more in profit ($4.3 billion) than GOOG reported in total revenues ($4.2 billion).
Google reported revenues of $4.23 billion for the quarter ended September 30, 2007, an increase of 57% compared to the third quarter of 2006 and an increase of 9% compared to the second quarter of 2007.
We will all end up working for MSFT, mark my words, many already are.
