"How Microsoft got Windows revenue to go up despite PC sales going down
One clue is the Surface – which managed to hide the erosion that is eating away at the heart of one key Microsoft business"
They count price of shorefish as windo sale. so you sell 500k tablet for $1000 it cover up loss of os sale. add on 1 mio rt sale at $600 and it look like os sale doing good when no one buying pc/os package.
but volume sale up too, so it not all trick. but it not w8 sale either,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Yes IDC is cooking the #s. SEC should investigate IDC and also MSFT should sue IDC for making false statements just to benefit the paid HedgeFunds guys. IDC lost all its credibility, its a shame for IDC.
