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.

is Microsoft PR. There is nothing to see here.

Then again, there had been a curious lack of red meat for the Microsoft haters as of late. This will probably do.

PR for Company says bad things about other Company. News at 11.

Seriously, Mirosoft and Google are in this crazy fucking proxy patent war and taking 100% of what Google or Microsoft says at face value is ridiculous.

Just like Microsoft should implement the DAV suite (Alongside ActiveSync, and not instead of, as people who have probably never used EAS for anything serious will advocate), Google should let Microsoft implement a YouTube app.

No, that's not what I'm saying at all. You can however figure out what I'm saying by reading my comment.
