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.

Thom, buying the XBOX because it was the cheaper of the two doesn't make you a fanboy, so my comment wasn't really aimed at you per se ;) I just find it fascinating that people will still blindly defend Microsoft as being some kind of noble entity despite their actions over the years, simply because they secured the rights to Gears of War. I also find it equally fascinating that Sony Computer Entertainment (ie. Completely distinct from the rootkit entity) gets a much harsher rap.
