Microsoft Research allocates 8 Billion dollars this fiscal year!

And, you wondered what we did  with all that money!

Well, last night, I was interested in learning how much Microsoft spends on Operating Expenses and it was about $16 billion dollars. While i was reading the SEC filings, I also learnt that Microsoft Research (I heart MSR!) was allocated $8 Billion USD this fiscal year. If you’ve ever worked with MSR folks you know that this money is very well spent! Ironically, I came across this video today…I’m so glad we have a poo tracker, Bluetooth hands-free alert flag, and a lot of other cool things coming soon…thank heavens for MSR Underground Research Labs!


Now, go buy that stock already!
