    Did anyone see this article?

    Steve Ballmer's Nightmare Is Coming True - Yahoo! Finance

    Thoughts? I thought the article took the less than stellar news coming out of Microsoft and ran with it with little facts and bad examples.

    don't believe anything you read on Yahoo Finance. I mean, Yahoo is the LAST company that needs to talk about someone else's finances.

    Yeah. To date there are 40 million copies of Windows licenced (yes that includes computers at stores that haven't been sold yet-but the licenses are paid for). I read an article where there are more win8 gamers on steam than there are OSX total gamers.

    Microsoft is heading for bankruptcy.

    Lumia 920's selling out... lol and this is also from Yahoo finance... yeah, they say there weren't many to begin with, yet sales are still 4x what they were last year...

    I remember when Apple was going under. It was a sure thing the financial types said. Microsoft maybe hitting a rough spot but they recognized this and they have forward thinking products now that have some wrinkles but if do you remember osx when it first came out. It was missing so much. The product turnover In the phone space makes companies that have most of there income coming from it are actually vulnerable. To say to give those financial type articles predicting doom for this company or that company a grain of salt would be an understatement.
