Microsoft Well, paint me red and call me a girl scout, I totally did not see this one coming at all. This is so utterly surprising it made my brain explode. Hold on to your panties, because this will rock your world. After pressuring several smaller Android vendors into submission (and yes, HTC is still relatively small compared to other players), Microsoft is now moving on to the big one: Redmond is demanding $15 for every Samsung Android device sold. Samsung's choices are simple: pay up, or face another epic lawsuit.

Except for the need for share price growth, which they haven't had in real terms for a long time. Microsoft have been floundering on the price/earnings front for as long as I can remember.

Any XBOX fanboys care to share a word or two? I know you are out there. For some reason, you've gravitated towards a plush, cuddly version of Microsoft that you imagined in order to spite evil Sony, without realising how stupid you have been by allowing your purchasing decisions to be influenced by your flawed personification of a tried monopolist.
