While many believe Apple is beginning to take over Microsoft as the reigning champ in the tech world, recent revenue numbers would lead one to believe that Redmond isn't willing to go out quietly; at least in terms of revenue numbers that is. Microsoft reported record revenues today, according to Cult of Mac.
While Apple reported their own record revenues this week, Microsoft's pulled ahead by just a tad. Microsoft reported $16.04 billion in revenue, while Apple reported $15.7 billion. Most of Microsoft's sales came from their Windows and Office products. In its online and entertainment realms, which would include mobile, they lost $696 million and $172 million respectively for each.
Apple will more than likely surpass Microsoft soon. Apple is estimating $18 billion next quarter, but may reach $20 billion. Perhaps the numbers could go even further as more and more iPads and iPhones continue to reach consumers.
