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.

This after I told you that the new Windows Mobile 7 looked like a piece of crap? You clearly are not listening to me, and only listening to the parts you want to hear.

Of course, I listen to everything you said. I even remembered that you travelled to Europe twice.

I hope you realize that what you just said is not at all relevant to the subject matter.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 24 February 2010 12:16 PM.
It means that I listened to what you said.
Also, by knowing you, Apple and Microsoft indicate something totally different to you.
Posted by Antony on 24 February 2010 1:16 PM.
Yes, two entirely different brand names and not much more.

Correct. But one company means 'loathe' to you, the other one simply gets your endorsing.

Yet again, you are only giving me more proof that you are not listening to me. Have a look at the first comment I left you on this entry.
