    WTF so microsoft pays apple for every microsoft office product sold and they also pay Amazon for every Windows OS sold and now Dell picks microsoft to give money to for every chrome and android product sold even tho Steve jobs created chrome and android.

    2014 and we are soo intelligent aliens can see that when x company created x product they make it so p company gets paid royalties... no wonder we havent seen any other intelligent life from outside our earth because aliens know we are stupid as F I would avoid earth at all costs if I was an alien and saw how pathetically stupid humans are.

    (I'm a Microsoft fan) I don't understand why google, the Force behind android OS and chrome OS is not directly negotiating with MS.
