not if you can't [actually] break in and steal stuff. and msft only has a big share of the desktop. virtually zero in mobile, which is where the majority of users and devices are now; android has more users than msft.
and even though you see scare tactic stories about android security they are only headlines. when you read the story it doesn't say anyone was affected by it. these are just shark attack style click bait because everyone has android. it's over 85% of the worldwide phone market and almost 43% of the tablet market. msft has 1% in tablets.
there are no articles with any details about millions of devices in a bot net or large numbers of people being victimized. just headlines about _potential_ problems, android being -targeted- and _possible_ vulnerabilities. never anything like 50 million users had their i.d. stolen or their bank accounts drained. that only happens with msft users.
msft hemorrhoid maps!
that has a bad ring to it!
think about it a bit differently ...
they own s.u.s.e.
now they can sue themselves over unix i.p. that isn't in the product they control!
no one has ever done that before!!!
and an industry partner too.
may be they needed a reliable solution with good uptime.
they should have named it TAMPON. PERIOD is a horrible name for a mapping "solution".
now pipe down again, mister b.q.
[see what you did again? (-;]
and also tld;nr
tediously loquacious drivel; not reportage.
torporous, listless; do not resuscitate.
naw, this here is the baseless political drivel board!
msft is almost the least talked about thing here on this yahoo! finance message board. and if not for you and a few others there would be a whole lot less.
and he knows it, too!
irrelevant to your bigotry as i already pointed out, little-willie.
now fall on your tin fundament again and make that funny little ping sound. (-;
that's irrelevant to your bigotry.
and i didn't say anything when it went 'downity', did i? bcuz it doesn't really matter, tin frog. (-;
that may start winding down:
barnes and noble thrashed them soundly after msft sued _them_.
some of the partners in the rockstar consortium are looking to sell out --
after paying $4.5 billion for the patents, creating an engineering team to look for lawsuit targets, conducting a year long group of suits that resulted in a settlement (no legal precedent that can be used against others) that is only netting them $188 mio. and no ongoing i.p. licensing.
but may be they will keep it going out of a stubborn need to lose money.
like their search and phone divisions. (-;
"all for not" sounds like a witticism.
so obviously you meant all for naught, which would be correct and therefore beyond your skill level.
