Comes down to making money

“Right now, Google will never admit to this reality. To be honest, I’m not sure most people on the Android team even realize this reality. But at the end of the day, this comes down to making money. Microsoft is currently making more money off of Android than Google is. iOS is providing more mobile revenue when it comes to Google searches. The model is already broken and it runs the risk of cracking wide open unless there’s a product that can keep it together.”

This is relevant to my interests:

Today I’m very excited to talk about how we’re advancing Microsoft’s cloud strategy with a new online offering for PC management and security combined with the best Windows experience called Windows Intune. Windows Intune simplifies how businesses manage and secure PCs using Windows cloud services and Windows 7 – making it easier for IT staff to manage and secure PCs from virtually anywhere. In addition to the core cloud service in this offering, we’re also providing access to Windows 7 Enterprise upgrades as well as advanced on-premise management and virtualization tools (Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack).
