No not the old Carl Sagan statement about the stars. I am talking Money. Remember when $1 Million was a lot of money?
Last night Microsoft released our earnings for the last 90 days. 12 Billion in Sales and some 2-3 Billion in profit depending up on if you can the deferral of revenue to next quarter.
So what’s 1 billion $? I think it is 1000 Million, right? so what will $1 billion buy ya?
A new stadium for the Dallas Cowboys.
New Terminal “D” at DFW airport.
1000 million dollar mansions in California (OK small houses out there.)
Or say 10,000 $100,000 starter houses in a Dallas suburb.
What else does a Billion buy these days?
Thinking about a Billion is hard to do, Microsoft is now almost making that much profit a month. And if we are going to hit $50Billion in sales this year(as some people predict). That’s almost $1Billion in sales a WEEK!
it makes a Million seem very small.
