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.

Trolling is a euphemism for "I disagree with what you say" on OSNews.

How dare I point out the double standard, how dare I point out how blatantly wrong Thom was, how dare I mention that Microsoft should implement the CalDAV and CardDAV. What a troll!

Yes, this same troll that likes Ubuntu's Phone OS, develops for iOS, Android, and Windows, and uses Google Hangouts and Google Voice.

This meme that I'm in the tank for Microsoft, or that I'm trolling, merely because I state my opinion on subjects, or because I dare dare, to challenge the echo chamber here, is so completely off base its not even funny.

If you let me go off on what I feel is wrong with Microsoft, it'll be hard to stop me, but they are actual real issues that they need to address. Not tired accusations of Anti competitiveness, vendor lock in, or whatever it is that gets you all so fired up.

What a troll.
