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.

You reap what you sow :-) Yes, MS is misbehaving up till this very day. Some recent ones: the UEFI Restricted Boot (aka, "Use the Hardware to Keep other OSes Out") and Android and FAT "licenses" (aka "Pay us for bogus patents or face long lawsuits")

Google is the only one with the muscle and the will to stand up against this.

LOL :-)
