YouTube SOLD! to Google

Okay, so I guess it wasn’t a rumor after all…It has been officially announced YouTube has been acquired by Google for the low price of $1.65 billion. Now, according to the press release, everything is going to stay the same. They will as remain two independent services and no one is going to be out of a job.

From a marketing stand point, it is good Google as opted to keep the YouTube name and site as is. More folks are familiar with the YouTube experience and community then they would be of that with Google Videos. However, based by the comments on CyberNet News, the one ‘wish list’ item people would like to see with this acquisition is an implementation of the Google search into YouTube. Unfortunately, I can not say I have had the pleasure (or displeasure in this case) of trying to do a search on YouTube.

  1. Hey guys,
    I have an iMac G5 running tiger 10.4.7 and I an having a wierd problem. Whenever I go to a site that has an embedded youtube, flash or some kind of video, there is no sound. If it a quicktime file there is no problem. There is not sound no matter what broswer I use, firefox, camino, safari, or shiira. And keep in mind that about a week ago I was not having this issue.

    Help Would be awesome
