u sure mate? have u even read why did Samsung do that?? and shoddy products?? is that why iPhones bend?? pathetic
$6.9 millions for Sammy is nothing.
Hopefully Samsung will buy AMD Corp and stop supplying chip to XBox.

We don't know the whole story - pretending we do just makes us look stupid.
is there something really original and new in digital media in this digital world? TECHNOLOGY must be open source.for example MP3's ? FLAC? ALAC? same category different codings,. Laws in PATENT is business related called profit. Did someone patented ABC alphabet.? maybe ALL people needed to pay its owner for royalties for using HIS/HER alphabet.
I'm not a Samsung (phone) fan at all, but Microsoft are just as greedy as Samsung, Apple, Google, Facebook etc., when chasing revenues. Hopefully, in the next 6 months to a year, I'll be done with Microsoft's PC OS (hoping to not even move from Windows 7 to 10, and never have anything to do with them again). Really want to make Linux work out, instead.
SomeGaps, 05 Oct 2014Samsung must buy AMD Corp. and then stop supplying processor to XBox game console.Currently Intel's are better than AMD. Console makers chose AMD's APU to cut cost
SomeGaps, 05 Oct 2014ha ha simple reason why sue now???? No windows phone from Sammy? Do it or die!Because Samsung illegally stopped payments. Samsung needs to design a Galaxy Brain 5 for its users, they don't seem to comprehend basic legal concepts.
DJDonTw, 05 Oct 2014Then Samsung bankrupts and everyone at Samsung loses their jobs!not really... Samsung is a huge company. Their net worth is 120 billion. They can stick with what made them popular in the first place.
which was Monitors and T'V's. Their strengths has always been that. The rest is average.
Samsung is already losing the plot and starting to come apart at the seams.
They are chasing the WRONG things and finally it has even caught up with their engineering resulting in shoddy products, instead they rely more on marketing. At least once upon a time, fanboys could actually say they were high performing products. Now even that can be challenged.
LOL samsung fanboys are so blind. These are royalty payments, samsung OWES microsoft. how would you feel if someone used your idea and didnt pay you for it? Jeez calm down, you downies..

Apple will find other options like it did with TMSC by shifting most of the work from Samsung. It can still find other options like Intel to manufacture if the worst day comes.
Samsung must buy AMD Corp. and then stop supplying processor to XBox game console.
ha ha simple reason why sue now????
No windows phone from Sammy?
Do it or die!

You Samsung fanboys really are brainwashed and delusional about Samsung and think it is invincible. How exactly can Samsung buy Microsoft? It would be great if Samsung suddenly stops producing things for other companies. That would basically put it out of business. The public fallout, loss of revenue, legal costs for breaking contracts, the boost for competitors, cost of idle PPE, shareholder backlash to name a few things they would have to contend with. Stop drinking so much of the S-Kool Aid.
What I don't understand about the agreement is.. Why does Samsung have to pay royalties to Microsoft for every Android it sells? I think Android belongs to Google, not Microsoft?

If Samsung stops partnership with every other companies, Samsung has nothing to lose! Samsung is too rich to care about those patents. Samsung can literally buy out microsoft at this point.
