Doom and Gloom or Boom and Zoom

Poor, poor Microsoft. It's stock is stalled worse than Paris Hilton driving a stick. Oh, and every pundit with a keypad or blog is talking about the end of Redmond hegemony and the total dufosity of Steve Ballmer.

Now, is there anything short of an asteroid that can make the stock move?
