It goes on to say
"Of Microsoft's seven business units, four posted an operating loss in
the quarter. Microsofts' home and entertainment division, which sells
the Xbox game console, posted a loss of $177 million from sales of $505

Selling $505 million of anything isn't doing too badly by my count, esp
when you have $2.98 billion in reserve to cover the deficit.
