Legal Since competing on merit is looked down upon in the computer and software world, companies in this business usually go for the blindfolded chick with the scale and sword. Up until recently, Microsoft didn't go for the whole patent litigation thing, but now that they've tasted some, they want more. They just sued Barnes & Noble, Foxconn, and Inventec for patent infringement because they use Android.

Really? You think it does not? How are they going to write off the losses due to the lawsuit? I can't imagine that the investors will be OK in absorbing those costs without increasing margins on some things.

Well, it's also possible they would raise prices to compensate for a fire in some Chinese factory that destroyed a whole batch of their product, or a thousand other different kind of scenarios that affect their bottom line. Do you really care to know every time something like that happens?
