Microsoft With the end of the year in sight, the great list-making time has come upon us. Newsweek makes ten predictions for 2010, and at number 9, they predict the end of the road for Steve Ballmer at Microsoft. I never really thought about it that much, but if you line up Microsoft's failures over the past years, it's actually a miracle his head hasn't rolled yet.

What I find interesting is that MS has 80 - 90% of the market, yet Apple (who back in 1997 was on the verge of death) is now worth $180 billion, MS is $250 billion...

So maybe market share isn't all it is cracked up to be, just a though...

Or maybe stock valuations aren't all they're cracked up to be - just a thought ;) .

Or maybe numbers can be more deceptive than words, and can say whatever the person presenting them would like them to say? ;) There are lies, and then there are statistics.
