your enemy's enemy is your friend, the Amazon and Microsoft chapter
Well, we all know that your enemy's enemy is your friend. According to electronista, Amazon and Microsoft agreed to a cross-licensing deal for each other's patents. The deal gives Microsoft special access to technology behind the Kindle reader as well as Amazon's implementation of Linux on servers. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed, including what technology Amazon would get, but the online retailer will pay Microsoft an unmentioned sum as part of the transaction.
So far, our good friend Don from beautiful Boston has not been impressed by Apple's iPad announcement. The Amazon and Microsoft deal might give us a hint that Microsoft is also entering the e-reader market. Without a doubt, Don is likely to be impressed with any Microsoft products/technologies.
Well, I haven't decided if I shall get an iPad or not.
