    Surface on track to be Microsoft's next billion $ business


    Looks like these might make some good business sense!

    $908 million last quarter revenue. I think we're going to see this grow with revision 4 and Broadwell. Great times!

    The way some folks talk you would think that Microsoft is going to put the Surface to bed. . .at close to a billion dollars in revenue it would appear Microsoft has other plans. . .

    Exactly.

    It makes me always smile when I see these two threads of ours in New Posts, both updated, nicely together. It tells about how "sure and confirmed" news based on "I heard it from my mate who knows someone who once dated a girl working in an office quite close to Microsoft" are:

    W7 Ultimate SP1 (64 bit), LM 18.2 MATE (64 bit), W10 Home (64 bit)

    That is a big turn around.

    Many people like Surface. If people keep buying them Microsoft will keep making them. More power to them.
    I personally have never used one. If I ever want to go portable I will surly take a serious look at the Surface.

    Hi there

    Some of the more "naysayers" against the Surface Pro should just have a look at what the markets think of Ms currently. Ms closed UP yesterday at 45.02 and is only 2 USD off its 52 week high -- and that's in a period where the markets have been falling a lot just recently.

    (@ any market traders here -- Pre Market is at 46.30 that's 2.84% up at my local time 11.30 - so you can make a nice little weekend money by a little PUT option - Ms does Weekly options and the contracts expire on Fridays !!! -- but with Any investment YOU have to asses the risk of course).

    I finally got all my trading hardware set up and working - starting with 3 large screens -- maybe I'll get another one !!

    The markets are always more accurate than most of the "non Journalists" in some of the computer press.

    Cheers
