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.

And a stupid waste of money that gets flushed down the lawyer company. MS is playing a scorched earth policy. They aren't making money off the mobile market so they're using bullshit means to make sure no one else does either.

I really wonder how much longer the US will be a dominant market. Enough of this crap and it will become a third world market and stay there.
