Microsoft makes company statistics interesting with the new "By The Numbers" website

Microsoft By The Numbers

Microsoft has launched a brand new website to show off some figures about the company. If you've ever felt like knowing exactly how many minutes are accumulated through Skype calls (hint: 2 billion), this new resource is the perfect way of finding out, as well as figures and details for other Microsoft products and services. It's essentially a portfolio highlighting the company's success, but what about the losses and products that haven't taken off?

Billed as "a collection of visual statistics about Microsoft products and services," the website sports a beautiful Windows 8 interface and visitors can select each tile to learn more and even check out services or products that the tile covers. Windows Phone also makes an appearance with 170,000 apps highlighted on the Windows Phone Store.

Some figures are rather interesting, such as 554,000 pizza slices consumed each year by Microsoft employees on campus, while other tiles show notable achievements, including the $1 billion donated to charities through the employee Giving campaign. The website also highlights the likes of Bing's marketshare (at just 17.86 percent - nothing to get excited about, but it is progress), however we're missing out on some details, including those surrounding Surface Windows tablets.

Check out the website for more information and all the figures.
