Google and Windows fight over youtube app

Windows Phone Has A New YouTube App—Same As The Old YouTube App

Windows has had to release a new version of their Youtube app on windows mobile devices, due to Google’s rights to Youtube.  Google states that Microsoft is violating Youtube’s Terms of Service by creating an app with its own UI for Youtube.  In response, Windows has had to release an older app as “new” which is essentially just a shortcut to the mobile version of Youtube.  This fight between Google and Microsoft has hurt Windows Mobile Users, and has left them with an error prone and at times “unusable” app.  Due to the complaints and reviews from users, both Google and Microsoft are taking the blame, and in turn hurting the market.
