Did not read the article but it is not HTC that pays M$ for every andriod phone it is anyone who buys a HTC phone with android OS paying that money.
This should go into 'Shiny things' section so that we can know what a deadly blood sucking parasite we have in the market which constantly evolves to seek new prey to feast on.
Sorry if the words are strong and perhaps even microshaft but then this is the truth.

Yeah, it's the truth. The only question is if the beast can be stopped.
