Legal Well well well well well, paint me red and call me a girly scout. I've been saying for months now that there's much more collaboration between Apple and Microsoft than their respective fanboys want to believe, especially when it comes to fighting Google and Android, which both companies partly do via patent suits. More evidence for this has emerged today. Remember CPTN Holdings, the consortium led by Microsoft which bought that bundle of patents from Novell? Which other companies are part of this consortium? EMC. Oracle. Apple.

Yeah, I guess conspiracy theories are a lot more interesting than likely theories.

You may call it such, but this kind of stuff happens all the time. These guys talk and meet up more than most would think. Those in power work together to stay in power and keep the industry going where they want. Sure it sounds conspiracy theory like, but it happens a lot.
