Microsoft "Microsoft's Surface RT is getting price cuts across the world this week as the company looks to boost sales of its first ever tablet hardware." Great vote of confidence on a platform barely out the door.

What you really mean, is we should just shut down all of Forbes' top 100 companies that doesn't tailor their products to a specific wants of a random internet user, right? I mean surely there's a reason why they're ONLY in the top 50 biggest publicly traded companies in the world after 30 years? And while we're at it, we should just shut down Intel, IBM, Proctor & Gamble, GE, Chase, and everyone else.

In all seriousness, in the last official reported quarter from Microsoft (Q3, 2013. I haven't seen info on anything newer that's official yet), the company earned a net profit of $6.06 Billion. IN THREE MONTHS. Let that sink in for a moment.

But surely, our armchair pundits on the internet know better than our companies. I mean, who wants to earn six billion dollars?

"in all seriousness" you shouldn't have answered to my post ;) mine was a useless rant of a useless internet user, more about culture than billions.
