    I understand what you are saying, and I think that statement is right 99% of the time. Then I think of the deep pockets ($$$) that Microsoft has. They can invest millions to have it payoff 5 years down the road, while other companies need to see an immediate return on their investment.

    I see people saying this all the time, and it is true to some extent. But I think some people are underestimating the power of the shareholders. Shareholders are often pretty shortsighted. They always want to see immediate profits, sometimes at the expense of a long term strategy. If things don't keep improving then the leadership at MS is going to find it harder and harder to justify the expense to the board.

    Yes, I know it took some time for the Xbox to be profitable but that's not necessarily the same situation. I think they need to keep pushing and improving sales or the shareholders will demand that they cut their losses.

    I was talking to my Vzw rep, whom I have a lot of faith in, and she told me not to expect anything until WP8 for a new device on Vzw. We've known each other many years and she owes me, so I believe her when she says that. Sigh...
