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.

Okay. This has ceased to be productive.

You don't have anything you can comment on?

Wow, considering you've commented on anything and everything anyone said here, its ceased being productive in my eyes a long time ago since you are being very clue resistant.

But I ALWAYS try to help.

No, I'm not here to go on long side arguments with you over nothing. This has gotten so far from the original point its lost meaning.

You literally have an entire comment, and it says nothing that you haven't said before, and only serves to get off topic.

I'm not here to argue Windows Phone 7, Windows 8, or Windows RT with you. In my mind, these are things I have moved passed trying to explain. If you have made the determination that Microsoft and Windows 8 will kill your first born, then that's between you and Microsoft.

I'm also not particularly keen on going through history with a pedant for the sake of nothing, because your opinion is so firmly set in stone that you're missing the core of my argument.

It is irrelevant what Microsoft has done, because as I've taken steps to shown (and you've ignored), it is a world apart from what Microsoft is doing today.

You can be amused by the karma, and you're well within your right to do so, but you cease to be right when you refuse to criticize Google for blocking access to its platform for a competitor, and with purposely crippling their own product for the sake of injuring Microsoft (and if you hate Microsoft so much, you can replace Microsoft with any corporation you'd like).

This has just reached a level of hysteria that I can't be bothered to try to address anymore.
