Commissioner Kroes flies off the handle

EU COMMISSIONER Neelie Kroes claimed Microsoft is still not coming up with demands for information required and threatened to fine the Vole $4 mill a day unless it coughs up.

But Microsoft reckons the EU is going way too far and doesn't want to share every single thing it has with its competitors.
