Microsoft priced a $3.75 billion debt offering on Monday, a first for the world's largest software maker. Microsoft said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing that it is offering five-, 10- and 30-year senior unsecured notes. The company announced it will sell $2 billion of 2.95 percent notes due June 1, 2014; $1 billion of 4.20 percent notes due June 1, 2019; and $750 million of 5.20 percent notes due June 1, 2039. The software maker said it will use proceeds from the sale for general corporate purposes, including possible acquisitions and stock buybacks.

These bungling fools can't do anything right these days. Now they want us to trust them with our money ? They're going to build a tech-town in China with it. Baloney. Who needs Microsoft CRAP. This country built its ungrateful butt now they send our jobs overseas into a communist country. Says a lot about microsloth. I'll keep my money here win or lose. I won't put a single dime into the MS Titanic.
