When Microsoft wrote on its blog about Motorola (now owned by Google) overcharging Microsoft for use of its video-related patents, we came to know that Microsoft was planning to use 50 of Motorola's patents, that patent companies are the reason why our gadgets are so expensive, that Microsoft pays 2 cents per computer for 2,300 patents it uses in its video software, and that Windows uses more than 60 standards, and that a PC supports about 200 standards. Won! We normally did not get to know all this!
