Microsoft Sales Exceed Forecast

Microsoft sales from January through March were $9.18 billion, up from $7.84 billion a year ago. Net profit was $1.32 billion. That's equal to a net
profit of 12 cents per share, down from 20 cents a share and $2.14 billion last year.

Microsoft blew past forecasts and boosted sales 17 percent in the first quarter, providing further evidence the economy is improving and companies are
starting to spend on technology again.
