R&D: Microsoft vs. Apple

The Next Web reports on R&D spending of the two primary tech companies:

Microsoft:
FY 2010: 8.7 billion
FY 2011: 9.0 billion
FY 2012: 9.8 billion

Apple:
FY 2010: 1.8 billion
FY 2011: 2.4 billion
FY 2012: 3.4 billion

This begs one question: WTF is Microsoft doing to justify those expenses?
