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.

RE[3]: DAV

Prompt change notification is only relevant to messaging. Calendar, contacts and tasks are not time critical, or are already triggered by other messages.
Also, the number of connections is not as important as the amount of data that needs to be transferred. CDMA networks spend energy per bytes transferred, TDMA per time connected.(Thus standby time for TDMA is lower than CDMA)

What DAV and IMAP are not are sync protocols.
