Microsoft Splits, AMD Slips

Microsoft Posts Profit, Splits Stock (thanks Nuinn Foxwood) has word that Microsoft's fourth quarter earnings report reveals profits of $2.55 billion (47 cents a share) for the quarter, prompting the company's first-ever dividend, as well as a stock split. A more negative result was posted by chip-maker AMD, who have reported greater losses and fewer sales than in 2001.

Not really...Fend for your own..Its an instinctive trait all humans share. Even when you give to others you are only doing so to make yourself feel better so in essence you are still doing it for yourself.

Even Mr. Rich bags in Redmond doesn't spend his money on himself. I read that he has donated something like 1.2 Billion dollars of his own money (not from the gatefoundation, or any of his other cahrities, out of his own personally bank account) in the last 10 years or so....

Halo, you crack me up..... but I could burn the building down....

Or, in a nice chronological twist, with $ 100 Million I wouldn't need to work for money EVER.
