Legal "Microsoft, the world's largest software maker, began arguing its U.S. trade case that Android-based smartphones made by Motorola Mobility Holdings use technology derived from Microsoft inventions. In a trial that began today before the International Trade Commission in Washington, Microsoft accused Motorola Mobility of infringing seven of its patents and requested a halt to imports of certain Motorola phones. The ITC has the power to stop imports of products that violate U.S. patent rights." Hey at least these patent trolls ensure we got stuff to write about.

'Conspiracy' is a very popular straw man argument word. Modern people are too selfish and stupid for conspiracies, or are they? Recent events in Egypt and Lybia cast some doubts on that.

it's hard to deny, that there is a lot of "The Godfather" style collusions or simple market divisions in corporate America.
For big corporation there is always a strong temptation to behave like a big street gang, suppressing competitors with robbery and bribes.
