– Microsoft using it’s most skilled department, Legal. If Microsoft would just spend money on making a good product, they wouldn’t feel like they needed to do this. Pretty pathetic Microsoft.
– And after Gates comes back, they’ll all ride Unicorns. Really.
– It’s sad that there’s still so much IE6 out there. It is a perfect example of the stagnation of the computer and Operating System market.

– It’s hard to believe that this guy actually pays attention to news. He seems amazingly out of touch with reality.
– I can honestly say that I struggle to find something I agree with in here.
– You’d think spending that much money, they’d be able to make a decent product. I can only think that bureaucratic meddling getting in the way of real progress.
– Interesting news. Oracle not giving us the full story?

– I wonder how far you have to follow the money before you reach Microsoft or Apple. My bet, not far. Of course, this could just be some company wanting to make a nickel off of Google’s success. Wouldn’t be the first time.
– I am looking forward to seeing what this could be. The Galaxy Tab has been very interesting. Here’s hoping this is a worthwhile successor.
– Seems like you shouldn’t bother, but it’s possible. My recommendation, Fix the Windows machine by installing Linux.
– Ray Ozzie seems like he’s got a few more brain cells floating around upstairs than Steve Ballmer. This seems like a huge loss for Microsoft, and a huge gain for Microsoft’s competitors, who ever they are.
– Sounds like a better deal than the iPad.

– I've been a big fan of LG in the past. The hardware keyboard on their V is still my favorite hardware keyboard to date. I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with in the next year. My contract with AT&T expires in 8 months! Get to work!
– I keep my hopes up for MeeGo, because it is a Linux based phone OS, which pretty much automagically makes it better than a Windows7 phone, but I’m starting to lose faith here.
– I can’t wait for the Verizon iPhone, just so all these stupid rumors will finally stop. Please Apple? Please Verizon? Make them stop?
