Google Blocks Microsoft’s New YouTube Windows Phone App

Tom Warren, the Verge:

Microsoft’s recently released YouTube application for Windows Phone is being blocked by Google. In a statement issued to The Verge, Google confirms that the application has been blocked for violating the terms of use. Despite the two companies collaborating on an app based on HTML5, Microsoft’s app is still breaking YouTube’s terms of use.

That’s right: Microsoft and Google built an app together, and Google blocked it for violating their Terms. I think my mind is about to touch the void.
