PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Yeah, we're continuing with the mobile news for now. As it turns out, there are two ways to deal with ever increasing competition. Where Apple sued HTC, Microsoft has decided to do what it does best: they're trying to extract some form of profit out of the rising popularity of Android phones. This morning, the Redmond giant announced it signed a patent licensing agreement with HTC.

i.e. if you can't beat oponnents, sue them. HTC was an easy target, already struck by a heavy Apple lawsuit. Also being a foreign company doesn't help if they get scrutinized by zealous US judges who view them as thiefs of American inventions.

I will probably remain an isolated case, just like Novell.
