Quote to Note: Microsoft Most Profitable

May 29, 2010

I wanted to capture this quotation. I have a hunch I may want to use it in one of my columns or lectures. “Microsoft’s CEO: “We’re Still the Most Profitable” contained this alleged statement by Steve Ballmer, chief executive of Microsoft:

I will make more profit and certainly there is no technology company on the planet that is as profitable as we are.—May 28, 2010

I suppose the meaning of “technology” is implied. The categorical “no technology company on the planet” is a strong statement. “More profit”, of course, depends on accounting methods. Interesting statement at a time when the technology action seems to be swirling around some other companies.
