Microsoft Reports First Loss in History


Recommended Posts

As expected, Microsoft reported a quarterly loss for the first time in its 26 years on the market on Thursday afternoon. The tech giant had warned previously that it would be taking a $6.19 billion write-down its 2007 acquisition of aQuantive, which Microsoft once hoped would help it break into the display market that continues to be dominated by Google.

Diga-se que esses 492 milhões de prejuízo que a Microsoft teve serviram como máscara para o facto de a empresa não ter conseguido bater os lucros obtidos no mesmo trimestre do ano anterior. Também se pode observar nos resultados anuais apresentados (em milhares de milhões):

2011/2012: $16.978 (somando $6.2 dá $23.178)

2010/2011: $23.150

2009/2012: $18.760

2008/2009: $14.569

“There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult.”
