Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "A war between two of the major conglomerates will always have casualties, and unfortunately for us, this time we are the casualties. We aren't yet at a state where it is impossible to use Google services on Microsoft platforms, but we are moving towards a stricter ecosystem world where we might see Googlers/Gmail users on one side and Bingers/Outlook users on the other. We can only hope for the sake of technologies future and for the sake of innovation that the two companies can learn to work together in an ever expanding world of data." We can hope so, but we're talking large companies, and large companies do not care about users. Never have, never will.

yeah, I think the example was more than a little strained here. I mean its Google, they are a web company first and foremost. If you want to search, use gmail, or watch youtube, you don't need to go to an app store, you just use your web brower. So what that google doesn't really make win8 apps. I plan on getting a new computer later this year and it will probably come with windows 8, however I'm not the least bit worried I won't be able to use google stuff, I use them online through my browser now and I will use them online through my broswer then.
