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.

I wish consumers weren't complete idiots and stop buying products from abusive companies.

AFAICT, every major corporation has some skeletons in the closet when it comes to anti-consumer shenanigans. If we really start to boycott everything that has a connection to these companies, we'll end up with a lot of cash in the bank account.

Not in the bank account, since you would be boycotting the banks too...
