I think that is the point, google wont change youtube to much, the will most likellly just ad the paid content like on google video, but use youtube to distrubute it. Plus, is it just me, or does youtube kind of fit the design scheme of google?

Such is the way of the commerce world. Create anything that becomes as popular and as well used as youtube.com... and you too will be offered a tidy sum for your efforts!

Keyrocks is spot on!

Its why the net crashed all those years ago, they didnt realise that creating something on the net would be so "wanted" back then, so a lot of companies got big and then went bust!  These days, they get big and then SELL OUT the the next biggest company!

Zero cost start up (well, maybe a grand for the first year for servers and space) and a few years down the track sell before u get bored with it and get 1.6 billion!

I hate Google too, not because of the technology, but just the covert way that make themselves out to be "the nices guys on the planet that do no evil"?!  A bit like the AntiChrist, you know, Micro$oft?!  :P

whuhaaaaa, I agree, but I think I'll raise the finger of warning here... this is not to become a debate between the microshaft's and their opponents, nor Googlefans and their opponents, so bare that in mind, folks... No hotted discussions that results in bad vibes is allowed here :lol:
