Google And Microsoft Now Besties, Teaming Up For YouTube App

Its been a little over a week since Larry Page told us that there needed to be more collaboration between companies in the technology sector, and then saw his company turn around and send a cease and desist letter to Microsoft for creating a YouTube application for Windows Phone that didn’t display ads.

Turns out that they’re actually besties now, and they’re collaborating on a new YouTube app for Windows phone with advertisements. The app should be out in a couple of weeks
