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.

I get it, Microsoft shit in your cornflakes. They did some terrible, anti-competitive things, but what happened then, is not what is happening today.

Forgiving Google today because of the sins of Microsoft in the past is nonsensical and hypocritical.

I understand full well that you think its some sort of poetic justice, understood, but that doesn't mean what Google is doing is right, or justified, nor does it make it okay for you and others to be so dismissive about their behavior.

Remember, Google's priorities just happen to somewhat align with yours today. They may not tomorrow. So be careful what actions you cheer on.
