Microsoft gets involved in the Financial Bailout

Pretty surprising when we see Microsoft get involved in political issues.  They’ve kept a pretty good stance of not being affected and seeing revenues grow.  I think this is an admission that everything including the technology sector will go down if financial stability isn’t seen soon.  Technology has weathered the hits pretty good lately but we also have to be realistic and understand that if everyone else is having trouble, technology will too.  That includes those of us serving the small business market.  Even though Michigan has been taking a beating the small business market has been primarily good due to increased interest in starting new businesses.  Without money or capital to start up that will dry up very quickly.
