Whenever anyboby acts in a manner contrary to his normal behavior, we
should look for an explanation.

Ballmer and Microsoft brag, and brag often, and would not give up
another opoortunity to brag, if they really had one.

If Ballmer and Microsoft won a major amount, they would brag about it.
If Tom-Tom was able to persuade Ballmer and Microsoft to keep that
amount secret, then Tom-Tom must have had significant bargaining power.
If Tom-Tom had significant bargaining power, then it's unlikely that
Ballmer and Microsoft won a major amount.
