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 "documented" protocol is still patented and anyone that wants to implement it in their email client or server-side needs to pay up.

So? You pay to implement WiFi, LTE, and 3G.

It was in the context of XMPP not being adequate for Google Hangouts a feature of Google+. They never say they pulled it from GChat (which is what Gmail uses). In short, Hangouts never, ever used GChat and XMPP

Sorry, Google has like 14 Chat APIs, I actually meant Google Talk, which is being superceded by Hangouts (which itself is a FB Messenger/WhatsApp/Kik competitor now)

FTA it states that Hangouts replaces Google Talk. I'm not sure if Google Chat is tied into Google Talk, or if its yet another separate protocol.

As for "an excuse". Seriously? You get paid to shill I don't get paid to debunk your crap. Go away.

Proof I get paid to shill? I make money off of Microsoft platforms, but I also make money off of Apple and to a more limited extent Android.
