Google buys YouTube for $1.65 billion
Wow...this is big! Does this mean they'll change the name to GOO TUBE?
Search giant’s purchase of video sharing service biggest in its history!
"This is the next step in the evolution of the Internet," Google Chief Executive Officer Eric Schmidt said during a conference call Monday.
This confirms my urgency to encourage students to post and use Google Video or You Tube. It's fast, easy & free. Why not post projects, mini-movies, etc. What better way to share and showcase your work?
We're using Google Video to post stories and vlogs from the news & sports departments. This is clearly the shape of things to come.
YouTube says it serves about 100 million videos daily and has drawn scrutiny from major media companies for copyrighted material appearing on its pages without their consent.
