HTG- Microsoft makes much more money from Android than Windows Phone. Every time you buy an Android smartphone or tablet, Microsoft is likely receiving $5 to $15. They likely make at least $2 billion per year from Android.
I think they deserve even more if their patents have been infringed upon.
People may not like it, but they have been fundamental in the build up of the digital era, specifically in the last 20 years. Its no surprise they have patents on some of these technologies.
They've bought and acquired patients you mean. That they basically make money by such means is why they're so bloated. That when they attempt to innovate its more like they're copying from other companies.
No, they have been much of the personal computing movement. There are millions of lines of code in all types of systems that solve a problem Microsoft conquered in the past. Don't be close minded, Microsoft is one of the fundamental technology companies.
What have they done that another company hadn't been doing first?
lol patent war chest..
Lol of course MS built our digital age in many ways
It's all about using vFAT (31.03.1994 patent) but it's no longer a valid patent in Europe since 2013
