Sony is bigger than Microsoft.......???????......???????
« on: December 16, 2000, 07:32:56 PM »
I was at these sites.....

Sony is ranked at number 30
http://www.fortune.com/fortune/global500/csnap/0,5948,CM|6640,00.html

Microsoft is ranked at number 216
http://www.fortune.com/fortune/global500/csnap/0,5948,CM|3063,00.html

Damn I didn\'t know Sony was a big company....I guess since they do make laptops, music, movies, have theaters, have television shows, have ties with restaurants, and most famously videogame consoles.....

Sony is NOT bigger than Microsoft!!!  This year computer sales were down, so revenue for MS, Intel, AMD, Compaq, Dell, and all tech stocks is down this year.

Sony made more money this year even though it\'s a smaller company.  But as soon as PC sales pick up next year....

Sony has always been at 20-30 they have never dropped down from these spots.

Microsoft has always been between 100-230, they are not a huge company as they seem, Bill Gates is just wealthy not his company.

Boy aren\'t you making a fool of yourself. Go check the links above, SOny is quite a bit larger than MS in a whole. In fact Sony has about 30 billion more in assets and has less company stock out so its a stronger company. MS makes more profit but all in all SOny is #30 on the Global 500 on MS is #216, and MS has NEVER EVER been larger than SOny NEVER

Alos MS made more profit than Sony did this year last year and the year before but they\'re still not bigger,

Please actually take the time to research before you spout out about some stuff you obviously don\'t know about

Now Microsoft is ranked at 216 for 2000
Now Sony is ranked at 30 for 2000

Bill Gates isn\'t the richest man in the world anymore. Larry Ellison is. Gates is only worth $36 billion due to the drop of Microsoft stock. Microsoft is dying. And people will see the peice of **** that windows Whistler is (I have the beta)

Sony has had greater REVENUE than Microsoft recently.... but Microsoft is BIGGER:

Sony has a Market Cap of $60,770,000,000
MicroSoft has a Market Cap of $262,287,000,000

So even though MSFT has been tanking, it\'s still over 4X larger today.

AND...

If you go by employees, Sony is all small small Asians, while Microsoft employees are all overweight computer geeks like ddaryl... so by sheer tonage, MS is bigger. ;)

Now that is just hitting below the belt.  A debate between the sizes of two companies all of a sudden turns into a personal attack.  How childish.....

Do you make this stuff up as you go along. MS is and was never larger than SOny the Global 500 doesn\'t lie.

Sony has total revenues of  60.052 billion as of March 2000 and 189,700 employees

MS has total revenues  of 19.747 billion. as of March 2000 and 31,396 employees.



Now if you want to debate this then provide links to your information from a reputable website like I have

So if Sony has a bad year and reports losses for the year, and my neighborhood bakery makes $1,000.

Then my local bakery is a larger company than Sony???
