The news is so new that there isn't even a link yet. I just felt like being the first to report it.

i read it in the paper, Google will be trying to make money from it in a £850 million deal. They will be throwing advertising all over youtube. It will ruin it i think. Watching adverts before the actual video goes on.

And they make all their money through advertising, and that's how they got to and will maintain their status.

google keeps knocking Alex Jones' documentaries off the top 100 list in google video by tampering with the number of views it gets.

honestly tho, I don't see why they dont make google video more like you tube and just compete.

people pay google to have little boxes with their site and link when you search for something. I have a feeling youtube will work the same way. People will pay to get in the featured media section. etc.
