    • Alupang: I own Lumia 520-there are plenty of alternative and fully functioning YouTube apps in the WP store. Not "afflicting" here--for end users.

    • Alupang: Only those with ropes around their necks (ties) care about silly fight between MSFT & Google. Users don't care; plenty of alt apps in store.

    • Alupang: Protube, Metrotube, TubeHD, Mytube...the WP Store list is endless FFS. Just pick one, shut up and get on with your life. Users don't care.

    • DumpsterDiver: Yup. GOOG's put itself in a bad spot here. Allowing these apps to function while blocking MSFT's shows their "policy" argument to be bogus..

    • DumpsterDiver: ...but blocking YouTube from Windows Phone across the board would garner them the kind of anti-trust attention that Microsoft used to get.

    • DumpsterDiver: Time to announce that they will magnanimously provide a solution "to work around the technical limitations of Windows Phone," methinks....

    • DumpsterDiver: They could have quite legitimately insisted all along that third-party apps must abide by 1) no downloading, and 2) serve our ads...

    • DumpsterDiver: ...and no one would have so much as blinked. But they just had to overplay it. Maybe Page should do a Google search on "Rope a Dope."

    • Alupang: AH, notice that the comments following your article link drift to unrelated topics because no end user really cares--plenty of alt Tube apps

    • Dakota4x4: So are you saying sell NOK today? While yesterday it was a buy? You are too funny Andreas.
      8/16/13
    • Alupang: Ping pong isn't working like before...because Lumia 1020 and 520 didn't exist then. You can't trade NOK based on past behavior.

    • Andreas Hopf: Dakota4x4 - read the text of my StockTalk post again, three times, then read what you just wrote - then try to write something making sense.

    • Andreas Hopf: Alupang - of course consumers care. Otherwise, forums would not be full with complaints. Try to think before you feel the urge to type.
      8/16/13
    • Alupang: AH, you missed my point that no one really cares. Read the forums again you missed all the "I'll just keep using MetroTube" user comments

    • Alupang: Kids love to hack, root and workaround all day! Makes them feel empowered. Choosing an alternative to YouTube is nothing and no one cares.
      8/16/13
    • Alupang: Do you actually own a Lumia and downloaded an alternative YouTube app from WP store? I did. So I think I know better.
      8/16/13
    • Andreas Hopf: No, I discarded all Lumia 920s long ago, because of the lack of core functions and core apps.
      8/16/13
    • Alupang: So now is the time to upgrade to Lumia 1020, now that I have enlightened you to the many Youtube alternatives like Metrotube, Mytube, etc.
