Microsoft reported positive news in a number of diverse segments. For the three months ended December 31, its Business Division revenue grew 24 percent year-over-year. In addition, some eight million Kinect units apparently sold in the hands-free controller’s first 60 days of release, giving the company a solid win on the consumer side of the equation and helping boost revenues for its Entertainment and Devices Division."
