Why Microsoft bought Nokia

It’s been a dizzying week for Windows Phone. First there was the Amber update (we’ll be posting the review soon), a couple of app releases, the reappearance of the ATIV S, the launch of the Lumia 625, and now Microsoft has just acquired Nokia for $7.2billion.

Google Murdered Microsoft’s YouTube app

The battle between Google and Microsoft has been raging on for the past few months. We first spoke about the release of an official YouTube app for WP8 mad by Microsoft, bringing with it a whole host of new features, and an experience comparable with iOS and Android.

However, a day after the app was launched, the app basically died and stopped working. Who did it? Google. Continue readingGoogle Murdered Microsoft’s YouTube app
