PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This is the biggest one yet. Microsoft's professional extortion campaign - the third side of the same triangle it shares with Apple and Oracle - has finally hit Samsung. The two companies have signed a patent licensing agreement concerning Samsung's use of Android, in which a rumoured fee of $15 (!) per device will flow from Seoul to Redmond. Not entirely coincidentally, that's about the price of a Windows Phone 7 license.

No company that uses, produces and promotes OSS has its assets as the core of the business.


Apple, the richest company in the world produces and promotes OSS and has its assets as the core of their business


The companies that do, usually go out of business. That's so repeatable that's nearly a rule.


You're right that its true most of the time.
