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.

It's amazing there are people stupid enough to actually label this as extortion.

Sorry to piss all over your parade but this is not going to cripple innovation, make the sky fall, or anything of any significance to any of you. Stop trying to spread fear with no real basis.
