I just read over on Google Ad Developer Blog that Google wants your money from placing ads in developers apps on WP8 but at the same time refuses to support Google Services like Youtube. Wow Google must be hurting since Microsoft gets paid royalties for every Android Device made. Google has another think coming if developers will use their money grubbing ad service but refuse WP8 Google services. Are you a developer? If you are, would you use this money grubbing service?

I have been a Windows Rom Developer (ROMs made include Special K and Doug E Fresh Rom). I have port apps for Windows Phone like Opera Mobile, and HTC Sense for Windows Phone. I no longer do that stuff. I now focus on analyzing malware and I own my own business fixing computers as well as installing secured networks. In my spare time I have my own mini network at my house to see the impact as well as analyzing the damaging power the malware causes by using malware samples given to me. Thanks to MobilityDigest.com, I have been given a great pleasure to write about malware and the impact on mobile devices.


  1. While Microsoft’s past decade has indeed been wildly successful compared to Google’s, I’m not sure they’re hurting that much.

    As for this advertisement SDK, is it possible that its creation has no actual connection to the Youtube thing (big company, lot of things going on at once, not a single evil mastermind behind everything)?

    Is this software and service something developers would find helpful were it superior to whatever alternatives exist, or would they turn their backs on Google on principle, given how much happier Microsoft’s history looks in comparison? You tell me: Which really is more important to developers Herg, the ability to make more revenue or some Youtube app drama between two companies? Were you a developer on the fence between platforms, would you go for the one that didn’t have something like this SDK to use? In what way is this not great news for Microsoft and its enthusiasts?

  2. They aren’t hurting. There is just no incentive to support an OS with such a low market share… Not going to change until Microsoft grows its user base.

  3. Or to put it another way. Not going to support an OS that has the potential to significantly impact their mobile market share.

    Google should take a look at the global market though. Microsoft is approaching double digit share. How much will it take?
