Legal "Microsoft and Facebook announced today a definitive agreement under which Microsoft will assign to Facebook the right to purchase a portion of the patent portfolio it recently agreed to acquire from AOL. Facebook has agreed to purchase this portion for $550 million in cash." Is it just me or is Microsoft focussing more and more on peddling patents?

Microsoft's tech development (hardware and software) has been little more than a "Johnny come lately" for the past ten years. Since they can't win on that front, their best (current) option is to make others lose.
