You have likely heard the big numbers about how much Microsoft earns in profit a year, but have you ever wondered what that equates to in regards to ‘per second’? Various numbers have been flung around, ranging from $10 to $300,000. But what actually is the truth?
During the past quarter (October - December 10), Microsoft has earned a staggering US$6.63 billion in profit, and US$19.95 billion in revenue. Let’s see what this equates to.
- Day, Microsoft profits: $73,666,667
- Hour, Microsoft profits: $3,069,444
- Minute, Microsoft profits: $51,157
