Microsoft Microsoft's response to Apple's win is probably the most cringeworthy of all. Blatantly admitting Windows Phone can't make a dent in the market on merit, but instead requires the court room to do so, Bill Cox, senior director of Windows Phone marketing communications, said: "Windows Phone is looking gooooood right now." Nauseating.

It has nothing to do with Apple hating or Samsung loving or Microsoft idiots.

It's simply put, that Apple, to get rid of competition, simply sues them into bankruptcy. Samsung won't actually pay that money, they'll appeal, drag it through the courts some more, time will pass, another judge will reduce the damages to half that, so, the corporate asses won't get hurt, us customers, the users will be on the receiving end for this idiocy.

Microsoft has it's own tools for dealing with competitors, look how it deals with Android for instance. It's sad that they can get away with it, but even with the costs increase they don't change that market very much, the customers still benefit.

Apple's win, doesn't matter they were right or not, opens a lot of problems for the industry.

Anyway, this whole thing is stupid. Square wheels. Think about it.

You mean how Samsung has been caught out with LCD price fixing, mobile price fixing, memory price fixing etc. etc. Oh, thats right - lets cheerlead on Samsung like some sort of white knight - sorry but that is pathetic as people who cheerlead on Apple has some sort of 'white knight' against Microsoft or people who cheerlead on IBM as a white knight against Microsoft. It is pathetic to see people jumping on the cheerleading bandwagon. Btw, the only difference between Apple and Microsoft is that Microsoft is willing to cut a deal that is realistic with Android vendors rather than the insanely stupid amount that Apple was demanding ($5 per device vs. $45-$50 per device). I'll bet my bottom dollar that if Apple offered Samsung $3 per device you would have seen Samsung leap at it but they didn't because Apple was stupid and demanded something that simply doesn't border on realistic.
