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.

This isn't a list of things for you to opine on, it's examples of Microsoft bringing key services which people value to other platforms. A stark change from the past.

You go on these red herrings about Hotmail on Windows vs BSD and some random crap about ActiveSync and Hyper-V, but your personal opinions are none of my concern, and completely besides the point.

You're so anti-Microsoft it's almost clinical, and you'd rather go on these useless rants than have a sensible discussion.
