Microsoft grew a whole Google last quarter

Good thing I held on to those MSFT stocks - Microsoft grew more than a whole of Google's sales this last quarter:

"Of course, even Microsoft's growth pales in comparison to Google's, which posted a 66% rise in sales in the quarter, from $1.5 billion to $2.5 billion. But Google is still, of course, a much smaller business, and it's worth noting that the $1 billion that it added to its sales is a fraction of the $3.5 billion that Microsoft added. To put it another way, the increase in Microsoft's sales during the quarter is greater than Google's total sales - by far ($3.5 billion vs. $2.5 billion)."

Isaac - Microsoft's financial success and my bank account balance were not directly correlated. I didn't join MSFT to get rich... :-)
