1) Microsoft’s hardware often has the phrase Hello from Seattle written on the back, similar to Apple in California.

2) The Microsoft Store in each country accepts payment in local currency only. (Some countries convert back to dollars in Korean standards.)

It’s a kind of overseas direct purchase, and because of this, Microsoft’s store policy has also caused a sensation on the Internet.
3) Microsoft and Bill Gates are well known companies, but they have never reached the top in terms of revenue.

5) A hacker group called SEA hacked and disclosed how much information Microsoft received from the FBI. They were charged 50-200 dollars per case. By November 2013, revenues were over $280,000.
