Just in time too. They should be able to surpass those few units Apple has sold already.

Ballmer: ms may not be the first or the best but we just keep coming and coming and coming...

translation: we'll pump money into it until you die.

yep, that's persistent. when the normal business model won't do (you know, that pesky profit and loss thing) simply use the cash cow twins. examples:

xbox lost over 10 billion big ones before it's first profitable quarter. to put that in some kind of perspective, with 10 billion they could have built themselves their very own international space station.
that's persistent.

microsoft internet strategies (msn, msn search and all the names for search they've used since, hotmail, etc) have never, in over a decade, make a nickel. close to another 10 billion in losses.

zune loses around 100 million a year.

to put that in some kind of perspective, with that second 10 billion they could have built themselves their very own cern large hadron collider.
that's persistent.

that's why windows phone 7 will never die and microsoft stores will never die. not at least until the cash cows home home.
