Friday, October 28, 2005 - Microsoft's Earnings Climb by 24% - Microsoft's Earnings Climb by 24%: "The earnings precede a briefing next week in San Francisco, where Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates is expected to outline how the company hopes to retool itself under Ray Ozzie, a software-industry pioneer who joined Microsoft through an acquisition earlier this year and now serves as one of its chief technology officers.
Mr. Ozzie's work is expected to focus on new software-development and product plans to help Microsoft better use the Internet for making and selling software. The expected strategy is in part an answer to Google, Inc. and other rivals that have seized new ways to profit from the Internet quicker than Microsoft. While those companies' share prices have soared, Microsoft's remains flat."
