Two days delay seems like a pretty reasonable request from Microsoft.

So this does rather look like Google is playing dirty.

I thought MS was asking for an 120 day deadline instead of 90.

So that the NSA can hack into our computers more…if they aren’t willing to fess up then that is their loose…I thought they were about improving security and protection of their users… I guess not…

Microsoft had plenty of time to patch this, they instead decided to test their boundaries just like a child.

Google said “no”, and now and embarrassed Microsoft has internalized the following: Google is not messing around when they give a deadline. The result: the spoiled child will abide its boundaries going forward, and will not miss another.

This is a good thing.
