Google Restores Maps for Windows Phone, But For How Long?

Maximum PC: Google has a somewhat complicated business model. Countless books have attempted to describe how the search giant makes money, and what drives them to live by the motto “do no evil”. Their motives aren’t easy to compress down into a few words, but if we had to try, it would be simply to say that they want you to use the Internet as much as possible. With this in mind, Google’s decision to block Windows Phone users from their map service made absolutely no sense. Windows Phone isn’t a competitive threat to Google, at least not yet, but between this move, and the company’s decision to cripple contact and calendar management for Gmail users, we can’t help but wonder what’s going on.
