Finance is complex, and I'm not surprised Ballmer doesn't get that.
Start with Why the loss? Take a look.

They are moving into a lot of platforms. They want to be the mobile platform for all content.
It won't surprise me if Amazon opens up a way for people to have video channels, like Youtube but with a way to weed out the idiots.
Amazon is playing the long game. If they win they will be the platform everyone uses to launch need business and grow.

If the flinch and decides to cut the moves they have made to do that, in the long run they won't add up to much.

It was always unfathomable to me how more than a century after the invention of the cash register, a multi-billion dollar company could predicate all of their income on high school students' scribbling. Not to mention having to wait in line while all these errors were tediously generated by the staff then checked over by irate customers.

It was a great thing when McDonalds finally dragged themselves into the 19th century.

And no, many of you do NOT have Aspergers syndrome. Some do. No more here then anywhere else.

Most of you are just passive aggressive ass hats.
I am around people with Aspergers syndrome every day. I don't know of any that can't use a phone to call someone they don't know.
