Big News Google Buys Youtube for $1.6 billion

I’ve been a user of Google Video and Youtube for several months now. Maybe I am fortunate here in South Africa because I’ve had an ADSL link for more then 2 years and I recently got a Wifi networking going. So I’m surfing the net all the time for cool things. A big distraction is video content. You don’t have to read much, and the images actually move around 😉 How entertaining is this? Well very, very, very entertaining and extremely addictive.

In a news report on The Register, a leading UK technology news website, Mark Cuban ridiculed the Google/Youtube deal. I think the concerns about copyrighted video content will soon evaporate. Google has a knack for working around this, and they are good negotiators. Can anyone see a link between Dr. Eric Schmidt, Google CEO sitting on the Apple board with this?
