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.

  • I just read, while going #2, a shampoo bottle that sounded a lot like Apple. 9 out of 10 people PERCEIVE a thickening EFFECT.

    Notice those distinct key words? Apple is a closed minded company, with a holier than thou attitude. Like god blessed the ground they walk on.

    Microsoft releases Software (and peripherals ) and Apple is OS and Hardware (overpriced I might add), and iTunes store...

    And Microsoft still makes more money than them. Suck it Apple.

    Who bought an OS people like my parents can use WITHOUT having to spend a rediculous amount of money, it sure was not apple. Microsoft may get knocked, but they did allow people to afford a computer. My parents don't need to spend $1000 on an apple laptop when a windows installed one for 400 will do the trick. All do to mass market of microsoft.

    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.
