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.

Now if the shoe was on the other foot, and Microsoft was locking Google and Android out of Skype, or Skydrive, or Outlook. Or if Microsoft blocked Google access to the Microsoft Store or whatever underhanded tactic you could think of, I guarantee that you, and many others would be up in arms and this post would have 200 comments instead of just 25.

There is such a double standard that it is ridiculous.
