Heh no. Microsoft owns NOTHING of apple. Several years ago MS bought 150 million in NON-VOTING Apple stock. It was merely a way for MS to show the government that they weren't being anti-competitive but since everyone knew what they were doing it didn't help. MS has no part in the decision making at Apple, can't vote at shareholder meetings, and really has no say about anything.
