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.

How come Microsh!t (and, while I normally shy away from using derogatory terms for them, they deserve it now) doesn't file against Apple? Or Google? Is it because they know they don't have a leg to stand on? Is it because they can't compete on their product offering? Is it because no one is buying their phones? If I was these companies, I would tell MS to take a hike and not ship ANY ms products, ever. I wish consumers weren't complete idiots and stop buying products from abusive companies.
