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.

Tu-Shey. I didn't remember hearing about that. Sadly too lazy to google for it. Or bing for that matter.

That's kind of impressive, that MS has been that open.

Having said that I'm not 100% convinced that the lack of Google on Winphone is purely spite. It seems others have been reluctant to develop for win phone as well.
