hmmm... well maybe MS could fix their browser so that people *can* watch Youtube videos from Windows Explorer.

Yes, he is. If Youtube works on Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari but doesn't work on Internet Explorer 10 then that simply means IE10 is not standards compliant and is broken. That's Microsoft shooting itself in the foot not Google being anti-competitive for refusing to support a broken browser.

Similarly, if Google decides not to release a Youtube app for Windows 8 using it's entirely private wholly owned API, then that's none of Microsoft's business either. They should sell more phones to make it cost effective for Google to give a damn about them.

How is this even anti-competitive? Google have the right to deny access to non-public APIs except for their own apps - that's why they are non-public to start with!

IE10 is not a broken browser, nor does it lack compliance in standards.

You remind me of Apple-Jobs: it's not broken. Everyone is using it wrong!

That would imply there are quite a few people actually having problems with IE10 in comparison to the competitors. That does not seem to be the case like it was for IE8 and 9.
