Microsoft faces karmic debt

It has been all over the news, at least in the geekosphere, Google has blocked Microsoft’s new Youtube app for Windows phone.

Microsoft’s official statement here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/microsoft_on_the_issues/archive/2013/08/15/the-limits-of-google-s-openness.aspx

Google has yet to respond publicly, but I think Microsoft’s statement is a remarkably uncharacteristic display of transparency. And I’m surely not the only one who has had a chuckle at this ironic turn of events. The mighty Microsoft of yore routinely attracted antitrust lawsuits with its unapologetically monopolistic practices, so it is not without glee that I see them at the mercy of their heir apparent.

But Google needs to not be evil. Period.
