Microsoft It turns out that a lot of people haven't been paying attention. Over the weekend, a story about how Microsoft is earning more from HTC's Android devices than from its own Windows Phone 7 sales spread all across the web, with surprised reactions everywhere. Anyone who has been paying attention to Microsoft's recent patent trolling regarding Android could've seen this coming.

ricegf,

"Free enterprise is the worst economic model known to man, except for all the others."

It's too early to call. Lets look back in a few years and see how well corporation-centric governments fair against better "managed" economies like china's.

(Please don't read into this wrongly, I'm not pro-china)

Free enterprise works best when players are all on the level. After a while though, without "intervention", the free market collapses into all powerful monopolies/oligopolies. As simple as it is, the game of monopoly is quite realistic in this sense.
