Microsoft lost $2 billion for Q4 of 2014, despite the hefty $22.2 billion in revenue (compared to $23.3 billion yesteryear). This can definitely be attributed to the 7,800 job cuts made earlier this year, plus the de-valuation of Nokia which resulted in a $7.5 billion jab to the coffers. An $888 million profit was made from the Surface line and Xbox clinched a 27 percent gain. Remember Bing? Well its market share increased to a sizeable 20.3 percent.
Talk about an eventful fiscal quarter.
