Microsoft Wins the High Ground in War with Google Commented on: 1 year ago (August 17, 2013)

Sadly, even though there are great replacements for most other Google services like mail, calendar, etc., YouTube is one that there is no viable alternative for. YouTube is a monopoly and should...

Google-Approved YouTube App Released for Windows Phone 8 Commented on: 1 year ago (August 15, 2013)

I can understand why Google doesn't want it's aps on Windows platforms, but I don't get why Facebook or Instagram wouldn't. If Microsoft wants to make an Instagram app for Windows Phone, why do...
