Microsoft accuses Google of boycotting its users
3 January, 2013 at 5:00 p.m.
The rivalry between Google and Microsoft It continues to manifest itself in new disputes. If those of Redmond have sought again and again to discredit the system Android, now accuse the search engine company of trying to prevent its mobile operating system from having a "decent" version of the YouTube application. In Microsoft they look forward to receiving permits to develop a service Youtube with good quality but Google, it seems, is reluctant to give them.
The vice president of Microsoft, Dave Heiner, has taken the finger to point directly to Google as responsible for the absence of an application of Youtube optimized in the system Windows Phone. The treatment of Mountain View towards Microsoft It is not being the same that Apple or its own ecosystem is dispensed with (as is normal in this case), and they have not even considered developing an app for their popular social network of videos for themselves, something that they have already in charge of doing in Microsoft, although it seems that this application requires the permission of Google in order to start working, and these do not seem to be in a hurry to give it to them.
The disputes between both companies continue to accumulate and each of them fights true to their style, it is curious. Microsoft It does so by mounting as much noise as possible, remember Steve Ballmer's statements regarding the lack of control in the Android system or gifts for those tweeters who would have had a bad experience with their malware. In Google they are quieter and simply ignore the presence of Microsoft in the sector, to this chapter that we now relate we can add the fact that their applications are not going to be adapted to Windows 8, for the moment.
The point is that while Manzana It has very loyal users, for an identity issue, it seems instead that Google and Microsoft They can share at a certain time to their audience. Obviously, those of the search engine are not interested in having a third powerful actor in the market because although it dominates a large part of the sector, it does not manage to retain both users and the apple. However, for now we only know the version of what happened to one of the parties, so we will see if Google He defends himself or just lets him run.
