08/15/2013, Back in May the Windows Phone YouTube app was pulled from the store following a cease and desist letter from Google. The internet search giant claimed that Microsoft had developed the app without its permission and that the app violated Google’s terms of service. It also said that the app had features which would stop ads from being displayed, hence the app had to be pulled. Yesterday the YouTube app […]
08/14/2013, Remember how it was just yesterday that we brought you word of the YouTube app for Windows Phone making an appearance over at the Windows Phone Store? Well, it is not a happy ending at all, since the app (which now comes without any video downloads, voice and upload support while carrying pesky pre-roll ads) has experienced a fairly widespread outage tonight. Apparently, some folks have tested it out using […]
08/13/2013, Earlier this year, much to the dismay of Windows Phone users, the YouTube app was pulled from the store following a cease and desist letter from Google. It was later revealed that Google and Microsoft were working together to release a new app and the good news for Windows Phone users is that it looks like the app will be making its way back into the Windows Phone Store later […]
08/09/2013, Google is known to add a number of easter eggs throughout a number of its properties, especially to its YouTube website. In the past, we’ve seen YouTube get in on the Harlem Shake craze as well as adopt Unix as its OS of choice. Another easter egg has been discovered during YouTube’s Geek Week, and it’s one we’re sure many self-proclaimed geeks will enjoy.
08/08/2013, YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley teased he was going to be launching a new video platform that would compliment YouTube earlier this year, which he announced would be MixBit.

08/06/2013, It was yesterday when we spotted a Vine spot of what could very well be a potential HTC One Max teaser, although that remains to be seen. Today, we have unearthed a YouTube clip by HTC (which happens to feature the tagline, “Here’s To Change” that will hopefully come true since HTC’s recent corporate performance has been far from satisfactory, and shareholders are an easy lot to lose their patience […]
08/05/2013, Don’t you find it absolutely annoying when you have a lot of tabs open in the browser and suddenly there’s audio blaring out of your speakers? In that scenario, it is always a headache to figure out which tab is the source of the audio, because just by glancing at the tab bar it can not be ascertained.

08/04/2013, YouTube has announced that it is now allowing users with 100 or more subscribers to initiate a live stream. This opens up a whole new world for independent and small content creators on the world’s biggest video streaming website. Only recently, channels with 1,000 or more subscribers were allowed to live stream content. Access to the service is being rolled out gradually, so even if you have 100 or more subscribers […]
08/04/2013, Google recently unveiled Chromecast, a HDMI dongle that lets use “cast” content from your mobile device or computer to your TV over a Wi-Fi network. We recently reported that the dongle didn’t have support for public Wi-Fi networks, meaning that you wouldn’t be able to use it on a hotel’s wireless connection, which is certainly a huge drawback for travelers. It is now being reported that Google’s $35 dongle doesn’t […]
07/25/2013, I suppose that your friends who are Windows Phone users would have shared some of their grievances with you concerning the operating system, never mind the fact that it is one smooth operator even on low end handsets. Well, YouTube on Windows Phone has not exactly been the example that YouTube on other platforms would like to follow, since you are unable to share videos recorded on the handset with […]
07/25/2013, While Google has no qualms releasing their products as apps on Apple’s iOS ecosystem, it seems that they aren’t too eager at giving Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform a helping hand. This has led to third-party alternatives, some of which are great, some not-so-great, but the good news is that if you’ve always wanted to show off your video captures made on your Nokia Lumia device, it seems that Nokia has […]
07/24/2013, In order to kick off celebrations of the upcoming Geek Week event, YouTube decided to introduce an Easter egg hunt – and it did so over its Twitter feed. Should your curiosity be piqued enough to have at least one feline life snuffed out, then you would have to decipher the rather cryptic 140 character clues. Of course, if you haven’t got a clue as to what all that (seemingly) […]
07/24/2013, At long last, YouTube has thrown in one-click embeddable “Subscribe” buttons to its offsite pages. Just how do you use it? Well, all it takes is a single click and you can embed one-click Subscribe buttons so that users would have an easier time subscribing to a company or an individual’s channel without having to visit its YouTube page. Where paid channels are concerned, the Subscribe button will be able […]
