    Investment expert states Microsoft may put some mobile companies to shame with Windows 10
    microsoft-windows-10-650x385.jpg

    Earlier today, a report came out reviewing Microsoft as a company, where they have been, where they are going, and how their stock is performing. This review shows how Satya Nadella has done wonders with Microsoft, bringing them from the brink of disaster into a bright future.

    Much is resting on the performance of Windows 10. The forecast is good, and Microsoft is showing to be a company that gives good yield to investors, something that is difficult to do in today's technology sector, especially with so many tech stocks starting to fall lately.

    Look, Microsoft is not the sexiest company in tech and has had its troubles in the past, but as this market gets rocky in late 2015, its important to look for companies with a wide moat and staying power.

    The PC isnt king like it once was, but it is naive to think that laptops and Windows will be going away anytime soon.

    And if Windows 10 continues its momentum, MSFT stock could see a second act that may put some mobile companies to shame.

    Why I like and fear Satya.. "It's not making us money right now or in the long run? Goodbye"

    Everywhere I look at MS I see positives and change for the better. The massive IP owning behemoth is working out at the gym, its getting agile, has one foot ahead of the competion and still accelerating. MS in December will be a force no one including Apple can stop. Small example of wooing the young....

    Very few companies pay interns. There are many careers where you are required to complete an internship program in order to get a paying job, and, companies knowing they can't get a job without it, take advantage and don't pay. They consider it part of your "education" and they work through universities, and they are able to legally get by not paying people because it's part of your schooling.

    My wife had to complete a 6 month internship, and I had to work hard to support us while she lived in another city to finish it. She didn't get a dime, but had to pay for room and board, car expenses, and so much more. It cost us about $15,000 to get her through the internship, because she also had to pay the university she was working through.

    That being said, it is VERY impressive with what Microsoft is paying for interns. Amazing, actually.

    Internships are very much a U.S. / U.K. thing. In pretty much every other industrialized country... if you work... you get paid the salary you agreed on. Legalized slavery IMHO.



    But yeah, considering $5400 is a starting wage, that really is pretty darn good!

    Only a UK thing in the last few years and it's a system being very badly abused by some companies.
