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.

I would prefer to support Google in case they were to play evil too. After all, the MS "protection tax" will be paid by the consumers to support the fat salaries of those who are litigating instead of writing code, I mean, the MS staff. I'm quite sure Google would do better use of those funds, to the consumer and also upstream.
