Legal After Microsoft's extortion racket has failed to stop Android, and after Oracle's crazy baseless lawsuit failed to stop Android, and after Nokia adopting Windows Phone failed to stop Android, Microsoft, Nokia, and Oracle are now grasping the next straw in their fruitless efforts to stop Android: they've filed an antitrust complaint with the EU, claiming Google unfairly bundles applications with Android.

"I am starting to feel ashamed to have worked at one of those companies, their culture wasn't like that.

What do you mean? Microsoft has been a piece of sh|t for a very long time. And Nokia has been a steamy one for years now, since that microsoftie became Nokia's CEO.

You have to remember that what we see on the outside of the company can be very different on the inside. Stuff like this comes from the management and legal departments, not the engineering departments who are often filled with intelligent, passionate people who generally just want to worry themselves with crafting inventive products and solutions.

Sure, you could argue that they should no better to work at a company who's legal/management actions are unscrupulous, but consider that a) it might not have been like that when they started, b) it's not the greatest economy to just quit and find another job, and c) they may believe that resources and opportunities available to them to create marvelous things for the public outweighs the risk that their creations or the income from them may be used for evil.
