ZDnet - Google is seeking to block Microsoft's new YouTube app for Windows Phone 8 because it blocks ads and allows downloading of videos from YouTube's site, in violation of its terms of service.
Sh!t just got real.
... is because I now have Chrome with AdBlocker+. Before that, I was getting pre-video ads all the time, which completely drove me away from the site. Now it's just like the good old days, where I can just lose hours of my time, browsing great videos.
Wow. Is this a +1 for Microsoft?
google cant keep em down for long. lol
I bet millions more people use ad block then there is using Microsofts youtube app. Yet Google insist to try destroy their competition.
ad block is different. I dont know how to explain it but its different.
mobile youtube doesn't have ads anyway... no youtube app I've ever used has ads....
O.o just yesterday i got an ad from my phone lol
