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.

cus' I'm an EU citizen, not an US citizen. Law system is flawed in the US, government is corrupt and politicians care only about interest groups, some small ethnic groups (born in the Middle East), big corporations and "wise guys". They don't care about regular people.

This is only one of the small effects of the current state of facts in the US.

I'm glad I don't live there.


If you aren't at least a politician, big in media, actor in Hollywood, officer in a top 500 corporation, your last name isn't Goldbach, Goldstein, Goldenbaum, Epstein, Lagerfeld, Rabin or your first name isn't Yitzhak, or your willy is uncut, you don't matter really much as a person in US.

It's a sad thing.

This is how the amerikan legal system works? In EU (without Great Britain)and most of the world (without Saudi Arabia, Israel and Iran) we have a civilized legal systems.

Roman law not only seems to be much better from a theoretically point of view, but actually is much better than anglo-saxon law.

You say, "I'm glad I don't live there [the US]"?
After reading your racist garbage, I'm glad you don't live here too. Please, do stay in Europe.
