I was surprised to see that 6% of their income came from clubbing baby seals.

Me, too!!

I would have expected it to be at least 9% by now!!

I guess the ever increasing costs of clubs is hurting Microsoft's bottom line just like everyone else...

There's a new i-app for that, so MS stake is going down from past years.
