Bing Is No Longer Microsoft’s Money Pit – Finally Becomes Profitable

Bing has been looking like a money pit for Microsoft for years now with massive investments being made towards datacenter infrastructure. However something awesome has finally happened. This past week Microsoft held it’s first quarter earnings call for fiscal 2016 and announced that Bing is finally profitable! In all Bing contributed a cool $1 billion to Microsoft’s first quarter for fiscal 2016. This is awesome news because it means that Microsoft can start focusing on some more fun projects and throw some of that profitability back into Bing by creating more webmaster tools and advertising tools.
