Google "Wired has obtained a copy of a cease and desist letter sent by Google to Microsoft today, demanding Microsoft immediately remove the YouTube app from its Windows Phone Store and disable existing copies on consumers' devices by May 22. The YouTube app for Windows Phone - developed by Microsoft not Google - strips out ads and allows downloading, both violations of YouTube's terms of service." Incredibly petty. Just come up with a solution, you bunch of kids.

That's in addition to Outlook, Skype, and SkyDrive, OneNote, Bing, Lync, and other major Microsoft services.

Lets not get confused, Microsoft has a lot of their major properties on iOS and Android in addition to Windows Phone.
