Google "Wired has obtained a copy of a cease and desist letter sent by Google to Microsoft today, demanding Microsoft immediately remove the YouTube app from its Windows Phone Store and disable existing copies on consumers' devices by May 22. The YouTube app for Windows Phone - developed by Microsoft not Google - strips out ads and allows downloading, both violations of YouTube's terms of service." Incredibly petty. Just come up with a solution, you bunch of kids.

You've now both become douches, I'm the bigger douche for adding yet more pointless clicks for the sorry readers.

Nah, clicks are pretty cheap (plus they help this site's stats). And look, you found a way to insult people and feel superior to both of them, all at the same time. So everybody wins!

Amazing that simply relaying what youtube's policies were, from the horse's mouth, managed to get some people's panties in such a twist.
