Microsoft just deposited another $3.46 billion to its bank account, ending it's most profitable quarter ever. Revenues rose by 7 percent year over year to 10.82 billion (32% profit margin).
Champagne corks must be flying over in Redmond, as the Home and Entertainment business unit responsible for the Xbox had it's first profitable quarter ever. Microsoft cited strong sales of both Halo 2 and the Xbox Live expansion for the console as the reason for the bookkeeper bringing out the black ink.

Redmond changed from Redmount as our eagled-eyed visitors have spotted. Sleuth is far from eagle-eyed today, more like red-eyed from all the travelling and tired from all the work getting the skinny from the valley. Apogloies, apologsei, ap.....sorry. ;-)
Edited 2/1/05 11:16 AM (PST): Last comment about the spelling in this posting. I don't know what came over me. Well, I do know that I've been battling a cold last week. But that surely doesn't justify any of the mistakes made in this posting. Things can only go uphill from here…. I hope.
