However, i have to say that Microsoft is playing a very dangerous game. Google owns Youtube, literally. MS can't expect to be the exception to the universal rules set down by Google for Youtube users across all types of devices. Oh, and Google owes MS no Youtube app, if it doesn't want to. MS is just yanking Google's chain for some attention to boost its own WP platform. … [Read more...] about Comments for : Microsoft’s updated Windows Phone YouTube app won’t address all of Google’s concerns

With WWDC coming next week, there is a chance that we will hear Apple announce that its own mapping application will replace Google Maps on iOS. According to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster this action will not have any affect on Google's take from iOS. In fact, Munster calculates that 2% of Google's profits come from the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad thanks to Google Search.Even though Google Maps won't be the mapping application for iOS out of the box, Google said at a press briefing on Wdnesday that it will still offer an iOS version of Google Maps as an app. Those used to it will still be able to download it from the Apps Store. Apple users are pretty much creatures of habit, so you can probably expect many of them to opt for the Google Maps app. Munster expects such an app from Google to overtake its other free iOS apps like Search, Gmail, Google+ and Translate.source: Fortune via TUAW … [Read more...] about Munster: 2% of Google’s profits come from the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad

MeoCao (unregistered) I think the technology is not ready yet for Google Glass. The key is pixel density, Google glass must have at least 480p to be adopted by the masses and the screen is just too small right now to fit that resolution. posted on 01 Jan 2013, 21:14 1 8.

It's policies they have to have to keep those music services. Who do you think pushed for iTunes to go DRM, do you think it was the music industry?
