    It looks like Samsung wasn't the only Android-focused company to sign a new licensing deal with Microsoft. Word came down this morning that Cyanogen has signed a partnership agreement with Microsoft and will soon bundle a number of products and services from the Redmond based company. These include Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, Bing and Office Mobile, and several of these Microsoft apps and services will even come with native integration.

    It looks like Microsoft is getting their "Eye of the Tiger" back. They needed to get hungry before they realized how to adapt and evolve in the new mobile generation of computing. Microsoft's CEO has refocused the company on what it has always been good at, providing great software and services. This new focus on getting Microsoft goods included on every platform imaginable is a brilliant move! What do you guys think?

    So I guess I won't be using CM again.

    Not because of the decision, but because I don't' want all that crap bundled in a rom on my phone

    If I wanted M$ products on my phone, I would buy a Windows phone. I don't...and I won't.
