Most of the Microsoft services are available on Android and IOS. Why can´t Google do the same for WP8. If I were MS I would ban Google Chrome from the entire Windows ecosystem, I use Firefox though.

Oh well, guess I have to keep my current android devices and get lumia 920 later... It's not like a deal breaker to me at all with the world without YouTube... I love the tech and I'll get the wp8 no matter what...

The only thing I subscribe is iJustine, a vlogger on YouTube :)

Google will learn the hard way the meaning of the term "anti trust". Android fanboys like xperi-knight,meocao, and rusticguy should actually read the source link before blindly defending them.

No, you just don't want the same thing to be true about your house pet Google. Browse the web for some of the anti-trust stories about Google, don't be such a blindfolded fanboy.

Like i said the proof is always in the puddin, if google is doing microsoft wrong..........IT WILL SHOW.......if microsoft isnt paying for what they want, or "asking properly" then they will continue to get what they're getting now........no help!

Simple as that..........not a fan boy of just google, BUT OF WHATS RIGHT!

Yes Microsoft is wrong, but that doesn't mean Google is right... Both play anti trust but you praise Google instead... What's your point here?

You remind me that Apple defeat Microsoft for being monopolist and all those crowded brainwashed fans keep praising Apple for being a hero... Now Google is hero and you praise him? Just like ifans did? Smh

I'm sorry is either I misunderstood you, or you have shown your hatred towards non-google organization... That's what I seen in your comments...

You say IT WILL SHOW!! show what? You did not clarify that as many commenters here are bad English dude... And they will misunderstand you and accused you biased... And I almost did that again :(

yea but you gotta learn that, just cuz "YOU" dont understand something doesnt give you the right to try and make someone look as if they are bad!

IT WILL SHOW...........what i meant by that was whoever is in the wrong here will be brought to justice wendy.........if google is playing unfair then they deserve to get whats coming to them.........if microsoft is being "foolish" here, then they will get what they are receiving NOW...
which is nothing

I search the WEB as you instructed, and I found this

It turn out that Microsoft is MORE EVIL than anyone ever thought possible.

They cheat, lie, etc. I think Microsoft need to be taught a lesson.

"The Shadow War

For years Microsoft has devoted massive resources and energy to waging a sneaky shadow war against Google, fielding an army of lobbyists and front groups that exist almost completely to spread anti-Google propaganda, including ICOMP.org, Association for Competitive Technology, FairSearch and SafeGov

They call themselves “industry groups,” and they have lots of members, but they’re basically Microsoft fronts devoted to hating on Google. Take a glance through ICOMP’s newsroom and Voices” section and white papers and ICOMP in the News section. It’s pretty much all Google, all the time — and all negative. It’s a whole website devoted to bashing Google, and frankly it’s kind of incredible, in a twisted way.

Yeah, nice try. Credible source from credible authors. Please, stop embarrassing yourself. I have already agreed on Microsoft having used shady business tacticcts from time to time, but your source link is no source. It's a blog post, and by so obviously filled with a lot of personal opinions too.

Are you stupid enough to think that Google is not using lobbyist organizations too? REALLY?

Here you go:

"Google increased its lobbyist spending from $1.48 million in the first quarter to $2.06 million in the second. For the first time, the company is spending more on lobbyists than Microsoft."

The truth hurts, right?

Agreed... Fanboys are fine but blind fanboys are morons who can't afford multiple products and feel the need to blast everything they don't have

WP users can always use the site. I don't see that the big deal is. MS is acting like Google owes the YouTube api.
