Good news for Microsoft! Online operations only lost $494 million this quarter.

OK, it’s still bad. But, it’s an improvement from the $728 million it lost last quarter. At some point Microsoft gets this turned around, we’re just not sure when.

Overall results for Microsoft were pretty good with revenue beating expectations and earnings coming right in line.
