    Rumor suggests Google will debut apps on Windows 10 soon


    Less than 48 hours before the feverously anticipated Windows 10 Devices event on Tuesday, rumors have been circulating the internet suggesting that Google of all companies may present its own apps for the Windows 10 ecosystem at the event. This move, if true, is quite surprising given the historically antagonistic relationship between the two technology giants.

    Perhaps the most prominent example of the storied feud between the two is the Android patent dispute. Other examples include Google blocking Microsoft’s perhaps rather invasive first party Windows Phone YouTube app, or Microsoft threatening Google for potential antitrust behavior. Even Google getting rid of Exchange ActiveSync support for its Gmail service.

    And yet, there are plenty of signs things are changing. As we reported this week, Microsoft and Google have finally agreed to drop all lawsuits between each other, agreeing to cooperate for the benefit of the consumer. “Google and Microsoft have agreed to collaborate on certain patent matters and anticipate working together in other areas in the future to benefit our customers,” both companies said in a joint statement.

    Microsoft is putting its apps on every platform. The company is even developing apps for iOS and Android that has not yet been developed for its own platforms, such as Send. Microsoft is working to get Google-developed VP9 codec into the Edge browser. Both companies, alongside several others in the industry, are working together to create royalty free video formats for the future.

    If this rumor is true, that Google is going to present apps for Windows 10, what does this mean for Microsoft’s future? I’m of the opinion that Google doing such is great for Microsoft’s future...

    Is it possible that Google and Microsoft will merge, or at least allow a single login? Most of my personal preferences are stored and recognized well in the Google eco-system, because I use Android, Google Drive, Gmail, YouTube, etc..

    Now, with Windows10, Microsoft seems to want to do the same by constructing a profile by gathering info on my reading habits, likes, etc.. I allow some personal info gathering, but refuse to set up Cortana, Windows Store, etc.., because they require that I set up a User ID/Password. Not going to do it.

    It would be nice if Google and Microsoft collaborated to allow each company's users to have a single universal UserName/Password to access all features offered by both companies.

    OH no it's bad enough that each one of them has a PWL and some of your data behind that but at least they are different PWL's !
