Microsoft said late Thursday it had reached a settlement with rival Google and former employee Kai-Fu Lee, thus putting to bed a legal battle that had exposed behind-the-scenes ill-feeling between the companies.

Anyone knows how much Google paid to Microsoft or vice versa?

I just have this hard time believing Bill Gates got in someone's face and started swearing at them. Doesnt he have more "important" things to be doing?

Well, Lee was no longer in the employ of Microsoft when he made that claim, so who knows if he was exagerating for the sake of bad PR for Microsoft.

But who knows, even the most calm people go berzerk occasionally.
