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.

With that being said, Microsoft is coming off looking like an angel when compared to Apple at this moment. One thing I will concede is someone noting that Apple when given the sort of power Microsoft has will be far worse - as seen so far things are moving in that direction. Where as Microsoft is happy to ask for $3 per unit we have Apple who effectively wants the vendor to shut down - $45-$50 is not realistic and pretty much demands that the business closes their doors.

MS just comes off as rather slimy. Unlike apple, they sidle up to vendors and extort money out of them. MS doesn't have mobile success so they choose to get some money out of competitors as opposed to blocking them outright.

I don't think either is correct.
