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.

This isn't a list of things for you to opine on, it's examples of Microsoft bringing key services which people value to other platforms. A stark change from the past.

You go on these red herrings about Hotmail on Windows vs BSD and some random crap about ActiveSync and Hyper-V, but your personal opinions are none of my concern, and completely besides the point.

You're so anti-Microsoft it's almost clinical, and you'd rather go on these useless rants than have a sensible discussion.

You were the one bringing up those particular things. I'm just showing you your vaulted Microsoft Golden Halo is more Lead with gold paint than anything lofty.

Just because you don;t have any way to combat facts and good points shows me you "scripted returns and talking points" are running out. You don't have any choice on your flow chart to be ale to provide good enough responses.

I really wish you would bring some real arguments to here rather than crying wolf for Microsoft.

It is not my problem you can't be asked to actually bring ante-points to my points.

They're not points at all, they're asides. Useless information. Who cares what you personally think about something?

Seriously, the extent to which you think your own personal opinions should be construed as fact, or taken as gospel is amusing.

I don't really care what you think about Hotmail, or ActiveSync, or Skype, or Outlook, or anything. That is completely, 100% besides the point.

If you want to feel some kind of satisfaction because I refuse to get dragged into a semantics shell game with you, so be it.
