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.

Yes, I read your fairytale.

What was that you said about playing dumb?

Voting has nothing to do with anything here.


Second, if you're so worried about how people spend their money, that was formerly your money, then you better stop paying taxes,


Okay, maybe you're not so much playing dumb.

However, do you use a gas powered car? Do you use grid electricity to any degree? Do you work and pay taxes? The list of questions, whose answers would easily contradict your supposed deep concern for where your money goes

I'm not sure but I think we may need to invent a new informal fallacy to describe your reasoning, here. I'm not allowed to worry about where my money goes unless I worry about every last penny. Right, got you. Dumb is now officially an understatement.

Unless you really enjoy looking like a fool that whines every time "Microsoft" is part of a discussion.
Oh, the ridiculous lengths you've gone to to defend your original misapprehension. This must be a really high-stakes internet argument.
