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.

You started out at $1-2, now you're jumped to $15 -- all based on nothing. You seem to have a problem blurring the line between your imagination and reality.
My original comment:
Anyway, wasn't it rumoured that HTC is only paying $1-2 per device? How'd Samsung screw up negotiations so badly?
Illiterate, are we?

Nothing in your opinion has any basis on anything in reality.
Well, at least we've moved on from the 'emotional investment' narrative. Now I'm just delusional...

Sadly I have to point out that Samsung is a vendor, not a retail outlet. Do I further have to explain the difference or are you capable of looking that up and actually comprehending it on your own?
Wow, that's an overt red herring.

More of your nonsense from lala land I see. Btw, if you don't like how you present yourself to the rest of us, .....

You've just done a great job of describing yourself, congratulations. Remembering, you're the one throwing a fit over nothing more than rumor & speculation by people who aren't even in the know here. It's hilarious that everything you've said has absolutely no basis in reality, yet you think I'm the one blowing smoke up your ass. Like I said, when you're ready to come back to the real world, you let me know lil buddy.
Same as above. Your basic strategy seems to be to throw random accusations around and to clumsily bat back the accusations levelled at you. It's almost as if you're trying to troll but lack the skill to do so effectively.
