So the big news of the day in the world of computers - Microsoft have reported
their first ever drop in revenue over the previous year since going public in 1996. From Forbes:
Computer giant Microsoft reported earnings of 33 cents per share, with a net income of $2.98 billion, a decrease of 32% from the same period in 2008. Third-quarter revenue came in at $13.65 billion, a 6% decline from the same period of the prior year.
Apple, however, aren't doing too badly
, with revenue up 8.7% over the previous year.
What a time to be alive, eh? I remember back in the day when seeing something with the Apple logo was a shock. After being at GDC recently and seeing the sheer number of tech-savvy games developers that have adopted the MacBooks, I think it's fair to say the tables have turned on Microsoft in the desktop world - while they're still dominant, Apple are most definitely in the game.
