Legal Since competing on merit is looked down upon in the computer and software world, companies in this business usually go for the blindfolded chick with the scale and sword. Up until recently, Microsoft didn't go for the whole patent litigation thing, but now that they've tasted some, they want more. They just sued Barnes & Noble, Foxconn, and Inventec for patent infringement because they use Android.

Absolutely! They recently patented a business process whereby a former VP becomes CEO of an arch-rival phone company, yells "Fire!", and craters the company's stock.

What - you slept through February?!?
