  1. Microsoft has released their financial earnings report for their Q1 fiscal 2016, revealing the company earned $20.4 billion in GAAP revenue ($21.6 billion non-GAAP) with net income of $4.62 billion ($5.4 billion non-GAAP).

    Compared to the same quarter last year, Microsoft's revenue has decreased by 12 percent from $23.2 billion, while net income has marginally increased by 2 percent from $4.54 billion.

    As for individual businesses within Microsoft, Windows Phone didn't do too well in the last quarter, with revenue falling 54 percent in constant currency. Surface revenue also fell year-on-year, down from $908 million to $672 million in the last quarter. With the launch of the new Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book, expect Surface revenue to rise in the upcoming quarter.

    Windows OEM revenue declined by 6 percent, while most other divisions did well: search revenue was up 29% in constant currency, Office commercial and cloud products grew 5%, and server and cloud products were up 13%. Microsoft also saw a year-on-year Xbox Live subscriber increase of 9 million, up to 39 million, and an Office 365 consumer subscriber increase of 3 million, up to 18.2 million.

    Alongside the release of Q1 2016 financials, Microsoft announced that they would be cutting around 1,000 jobs. In a statement, the company said that job reductions "were spread across more than one business area and country and reflect adaptations to business needs."

    Their fiscal year does not coincide with the calendar year. Like many companies and government entities, their fiscal year begins July 1 of any given year.

    Divide that by the number of code lines written during the same period, and you will understand their inspiration for slavery, which they call "diversity".
