Microsoft Microsoft's legal chief: "We continue to be dogged by an issue we had hoped would be resolved by now: Google continues to prevent Microsoft from offering consumers a fully featured YouTube app for the Windows Phone." Utter nonsense, since MetroTube offers a complete and full YouTube experience on Windows Phone (it's one of the best Windows Phone applications), and YouTube+ on Windows 8. Two fantastically rich applications, built by small ISVs - yet Microsoft can't do the same? Don't make me laugh. Coincidentally, Microsoft is also whining some more about Google's removal of ActiveSync - Redmond again refuses to acknowledge that all it needs to do is implement the open standards CalDAV and CardDAV, just like everyone else has done. Times have changed, Ballmer. You don't get to dictate the industry anymore.

Proof buddy! You have none. If you do, please show it. Otherwise, this conspiracy of yours is bullshit.


So providing access to the API for iOS and Android clients but refusing to grant Microsoft permission to use said API, and refusing to grand MetroTube permission to use the API isn't a direct attack on third party YouTube apps?

I really struggle to understand your thought process sometimes.
