Microsoft: That's OK, We Still Make More Profits

This week's stock market showed that Apple had finally climbed over Microsoft to become the world's largest tech company in terms of market capitalization. While that sort of thing could worry Microsoft, CEO Steve Ballmer isn't worried at all.

"I will make more profits and certainly there is no technology company in the planet which is as profitable as we are," Ballmer said to the Wall Street Journal. "Stock markets will take care of the rest."

"We are executing very well," he said. "That's going to lead to great products and great success."

Now there's a rumor that Steve Ballmer will be joining his Steve-counterpart at Apple's WWDC on June 7 for some sort of announcement. Could there be enough room on the stage for such a bold, Steve duet? Apparently not.

    Both companies are great, but who started the biggest operating system boom of all time? Nuff said.

    This all stinks of little kids shouting out 'My Dad's car is better than your Dad's car!'...

    To be honest I don't give a crap about which company makes the most money. What I care about is who offers me the best products for the lower price to my own pocket.

    Although now that Apple has surpassed MS I would like to see the DOJ even things up a bit and apply the same priciples that they have attacked MS with over the last decade. Lets see how Apple handles such negative and consistant press.
