It's ok that Google and Apple are being patent trolls...

I'm ordinarily the last one to defend Apple, but you clearly have no idea what a "patent troll" actually is. I abhor their use of dubious patents as a way to oppress any and all competition, but they do actually produce a product. Any if Google has been busy suing competitors, I haven't been hearing about it.

With Office 365, Microsoft is about to embark on a huge social experiment to see if they'll also pay that way for basic software. But in doing so, Microsoft has jacked up prices on its old fee structure to make subscriptions seem like a better deal. And that could really leave a bad impression with financially struggling consumers."

The reward for working hard is more hard work.
