Marine1: Well, they're right to be the pot that calls the kettle black. Windows Phone is absolutely fine on its own merits, and reviewer after reviewer says this. Then they go on to criticize the lack of applications. The problem is, there are certain things users expect to be able to do on a smartphone, and those things include using a YouTube application. Google is denying Microsoft the ability to compete in the smartphone space by denying that OS a legitimate YouTube client. However, they had no problems creating a YouTube application for the iPhone back when its market share in the phone space was around 0%. In this way, Google is acting as an arbiter of who and what they get to compete against, and yes, that is exactly what antitrust/anti-competitive regulations are there to stop.I get that Windows Phone has low market share. However, that could change if Google stopped trying to kill the platform. If Windows Phone doesn't succeed, it should be because of its own merits.
narkor: If you're happy with the Internet being completely run by Google (who determine what sites live and what sites die by a search engine ranking system that they don't explain, except to claim "it's really fair") - then everything is fine.
terminalx: They already do as stated above and the third Party apps are using illegal workarounds,
