You may be wondering what happened to the YouTube app for Windows Phone. Last May, after we launched a much improved app on our platform, Google objected on a number of grounds. We took our app down and agreed to work with Google to solve their issues. This week, after we addressed each of Google’s points, we re-launched the app, only to have Google technically block it.
It's going downhill at Google. A company which once embraced all platforms has become The Bully.
Thanks for sharing. Google always said that they do not want to be evil. But i can not believe this anymore.
They are loosing credibility at a much faster pace, than they had when they build it up.
Actually they are close to nothing left.
Mir stellt sich, neben meinem steigenden Frust auf google, eigentlich nur eine Frage, wovor hat google Angst?
There are always two sides to an argument. What is Google's explanation?
Microsoft in the past wasn't a paragon of virtue either.
Ein Spruch aus früheren Zeiten bei mir war immer: wenn andere Unternehmen die Marktmacht wie Microsoft hätten, sie würden genauso rücksichtslos agieren.
Ich habe mich geirrt. Google und auch Apple zeigen, dass sie sogar noch rücksichtsloser agieren als es MS in seiner schlimmsten Zeit getan hat. Nur haben die inzwischen doch aus ihren Fehlern gelernt (einen ähnlichen Prozess sehe ich gerade auch bei Sony).
Ich bin durch mit Google - Accounts sind gelöscht bzw. stillgelegt. Geht perfekt ohne :)
At the beginning of the century when me and other Linux users were frustrated about Microsoft, nobody really cared about us. I doubt anybody will care too much about MS users being frustrated about Google.
Other than that, Google services being open to anyone clearly is the better strategy, for Google and Microsoft.
As for those trumpeting that Google is worse than Microsoft ever was: please deliver a table with arguments, eben the better if it's objectively rated and weighed.
Day-to-day adult supervision no longer needed! (https://twitter.com/ericschmidt/status/28196946376130560) I guess that Eric Schmidt was terribly wrong here.
Block another company's app from accessing a service that you make money with (through advertising)?
Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face!
