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 don't see why these wimpy companies are giving in to the mafia-like shakedowns Microsoft is pulling. Microsoft has no real patents to threaten anyone with.

Oh, right. I'm sure that Samsung is in the habit of giving away millions of dollars in revenue without cause... Are you actually naive enough to believe that "no real patents" exist? LOL! Talk about reality distortion.
