Microsoft "One of Microsoft's hottest new profit centers is a smartphone platform you've definitely heard of: Android. Google's Linux-based mobile operating system is a favorite target for Microsoft's patent attorneys, who are suing numerous Android vendors and just today announced that another manufacturer has agreed to write checks to Microsoft every time it ships an Android device. Microsoft's latest target is Wistron Corp., which has signed a patent agreement 'that provides broad coverage under Microsoft's patent portfolio for Wistron's tablets, mobile phones, e-readers and other consumer devices running the Android or Chrome platform', Microsoft announced." That's the reality we live in, folks. This is at least as criminal - if not more so - than Microsoft's monopoly abuse late last century. After the Nortel crap, it's completely left the black helicopter camp for me: Microsoft, Apple, and several others are working together to fight Android the only way they know how: with underhand mafia tactics. Absolutely sickening. Hey Anonymous, are you listening? YES I WENT THERE.

Thom needs to get on Ritalin

Seriously Thom, take some Ritalin... Or some Prozac... Do something... You hope Anonymous hacks Microsoft? I hope they hack OSNews.

Btw, I notice that you never did run my Google article you said you were going to get to... You never ran the second one I submitted either about Google's problems with the FDA over the drug ads. Even though that one disappeared from the queue as well. I still think you are afraid of Google.

Also, remember what I said about why I don't submit stories very often? Because they almost never get published? I rest my case.
