Legal And yet another major Android vendor will pay protection money to Microsoft. "Microsoft and LG Electronics have signed a patent agreement that provides broad coverage under Microsoft's patent portfolio for LG's tablets, mobile phones and other consumer devices running the Android or Chrome OS Platform. The contents of the agreement have not been disclosed." You know your technology sector is terminally ill when this sort of bullshit is considered normal.

I am deeply sickened by the behavior typified by both Apple and Microsoft with the patent trolling. It is quite sad that that neither company feels that innovation can be driven by fair competition. After all, the Macintosh would have never existed had it not been influenced by PARC. Windows would have never existed had it not been influenced by the Macintosh. So why are these companies behaving so badly today? May their execs all burn in Hell.
