    Lol more people use Skype than facetime and hangouts put together. And anyway, facetime is only on ios. And hangouts isn't exactly cross platform. 99% people use Skype for video calling. There's even a thread about this in WPC,I believe.
    You only talked about android and iOS. Everyone knows Skype sucks on both platforms anyway. It just sucks the most on WP.

    Chrome IS is rising. Look it up. windows gets viruses and spyware while chrome OS updates without forcing you. Boots up instantaneously. The average computer user goes on the web anyway.
    Oh yeah? Come to India, Africa, and China were the majority of the population lives, and you'll discover that most aren't connected to the internet. The US isn't the whole world, you know. Spyware? Malware? Use Windows 8 or higher. Has built in defender, and security level is far far higher than XP, vista or 7. I've been using Windows since 2002(95 was my first OS) and have never encountered a virus problem. I used to have Norton earlier, but since installing Windows8 3 years back, no antivirus. And no viruses either. Also the no. Of infected Android phones is larger than the no. Of infected PCs. Just so you know, open source OS s are less secure. Chrome OS is based on Linux.

    I've already said that I've been using Google more for than 11 years. I switched to Bing before a few months, just because I found it better. I don't use bing because I am a MS fan! You say nobody uses Bing outside USA, well people use Siri, yahoo, Facebook, so aren't they indirectly using Bing?
    The only reason you use Bing is that you hate Google.
    This applied to many other users too.

    Quality has nothing to do with

    it's just about hate.

    So everyone searching with Siri or searching on Facebook only do so because they hate Google? You do know that those two services use Bing and not Google, right?

    Poor DMC. He's been using Bing and didn't even know it.

    When did the google start making a PC OS? Now when did Microsoft start making a smartphone OS? After two years of making their new OS, they have gained over 10% of users around the world. Compared to windows phone after 4 years which only has 2.7%. Okay let me make it fairer. Wp8 was released two years ago but if you remove the wp7 users. You get less than 2.7% and that's in two years.

    But if no one knows they are using bing than no one will care. If Microsoft doesn't make it clear for people to realise they are using bing. No one will care. But people who knowingly use bing.com are either forced to by the WP search button or they hate google. DMC is right

    Where the heck did ya get those stats? Check WPC or wmpoweruser. Windows holds 94% market share. Chrome OS 0.3%. Chrome OS at 10% lol in your dreams man when even mac is at 6%. Now WP is 3.6% in 2013 up from 2.5% in 2012. Lets see where the position is at the end of 2014. And please explain why would you want to remove WP 7 users from the equation? In that case remove all the Android users except those using 4.4. Lol stop t₹0//!n man.

    I don't have any facebook account neither own any Apple device.
    Yeah! I have used Bing and it's quality ........not good enough for me.

    Lets end this childish discussion here.
    You like Bing and MS services and I prefer Google over MS services.

    It not necessary that everyone like same thing.

    Now back to topic "YouTube"

    What was we discussing about YouTube?

    I like Bing. I hate google but my choice to use Bing is based on personal preference. Bing results are more cleaner with useful options in the result window. It is why I choose to use Bing. I think I hate goole's current leadership. It wasn't always this way with them until they began to try to buy up all of the internet and its services. Then they became the (R)icks they've become.

    Actually, quality is the main reason why I use Bing. By using Bing, I can help improve Cortana's search. As Cortana's search gets better, I'll benefit more. Another reason I like Bing is the background image that changes daily.

    No need to argue with him. That story always makes me smile when I read it and makes me think just how senile some are in tech. Its like Windows has stood still while being attacked by killer bees. lol. I personally haven't to battle a virus on any of my systems for years. Nor has any of my family, all of whom run Windows 8.1. That's an old, worn out mac head talking point. If you keep your OS updated and be smart about where you go on the net, you'll be safe. Those that should worry are those still running Windows XP, but the vast majority of us don't have to worry like that. If tech has you that frightened I say stay off the net.

    You are correct. I have used windows 2000, millennium, xp, vista & now have 7. I never got a virus even when I never had an anti virus in my PC. I am using torrents from last 5 years, still haven't got any virus. I might suggest that if someone has a problem using Windows, we all are free to switch to Mac, Linux, Ubuntu etc. Its a personal choice what we want to use

    Google will make an official YouTube app for Windows Phone. Not only that, but they'll also make one for Gmail, Maps, Google+, Hangouts, Docs and Drive. I don't have any insider information or anything, but it boils down to Google's incentives.

    Yes, Google wants Android to take over everything, i.e. phones, tablets, PCs, televisions, cars, etc. But pushing Android in of itself is not the aim, the aim is to broaden the data collection web as far and wide as possible. Whatever Windows Phone's market share, there will be a time when over *100 million* people will use WP devices. If the 15+ new OEMs succeed in terms of sales, that time could be quite soon.

    There's no way a company such as Google would not have tabs on some 100 million people all over the world. In fact, that would create the existence of a dark zone that no other company akin to Google would ignore. While advertising is their core objective, there is another market brewing for collecting and interpreting consumer data.

    Note, I'm not saying Google would offer first class experiences on Windows Phone, but it will ultimately offer enough to keep people signed in and using its services. You just don't ignore 100 000 000 individuals.

    That would actually be good for Bing with all the propaganda floating around that it's inferior to Google. If people don't know that they're actually using Bing, then they won't care what search engine they're using as long as they get the results they want. Before people know it, more and more will be using Bing.

    I use Bing because I can't trust Google to give me the best search results...

    When I search for products on Google, it's all paid advertising. It's been that way in the US since 2012:

    Google Product Search To Become Google Shopping, Use Pay-To-Play Model

    And it's been that way in 11 more countries since 2013:

    Google Switches To Paid Shopping Results In 11 New Countries

    I know that you don't like being confused with facts, but it's time to stop drinking the Google kool-aid.
