Microsoft Well, paint me red and call me a girl scout, I totally did not see this one coming at all. This is so utterly surprising it made my brain explode. Hold on to your panties, because this will rock your world. After pressuring several smaller Android vendors into submission (and yes, HTC is still relatively small compared to other players), Microsoft is now moving on to the big one: Redmond is demanding $15 for every Samsung Android device sold. Samsung's choices are simple: pay up, or face another epic lawsuit.

Just plain a shame

I'd thought the idea was for these big companies to be putting all these patents out for DEFENSIVE purposes, so that they couldn't be sued by somebody else. Not so that already filthy rich companies would be trying to squeeze more money out.

And like some have said, shame on Google for not taking the hit on this.
