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.

Because he loves Google.

I wondered when Mr. Cognitive Dissonance would show up. As always, I can rely on you to disregard 7 years of posting history chock full of love AND criticism for each AND every company, just to maintain your world view.

I've been for and against everything, buddy. Nobody takes nonsense like that seriously anymore. I've advised people to switch to DuckDuckGo. I point and laugh at Google+. I regularly dump on Chrome for Android. I have posted countless articles on Google's utter failure in the Android update situation. I have condemned Google for its actions regarding the handling of adult content in image search. I have condemned Google's actions regarding SkyHook, going even so far as to interview the CEO of SkyHook himself. And much more.

But sure, I love Google. Whatever you say. I don't think "love" means what you think it means.

I have an iMac, and love my HTC 8X.

Of course I have a love-hate relationship with Google. I have the same relationship with Apple, Microsoft, and everything else. It's called being a rational human being, acknowledging both the good AND the bad as they present themselves.

The fact that some people would prefer to ONLY remember when I say good things about company A or bad things about company B is not my problem. I can't solve the issue of selective perception being mankind's the go-to solution to address the state of cognitive dissonance.
