Microsoft will announce second quarter earnings (their fiscal year begins July 1) on January 22, 2009.
A live webcast will be available at 2:30pm PST at http://www.microsoft.com/msft.
It will be interesting to see if anything is said about Cashback and its affect on Live Search. In November came word that the program was working. But a glitch on Black Friday turned some Cashback customers sour.
Still, the program expanded to offer instant Cashback on eBay purchases made via PayPal.
Of course, Microsoft is much more than a search company, but with recent hires coming into the company from Yahoo, we'll be looking for any statements made about search during the call.
