    Uh, they won't.

    they are keeping the two seperate for a few reasons, two being that if they change the name then it could ruin the userbase and because the site is sue-city, and they don't want to attach their name to it. Smart really.

    BTW they didn't give them cash, they gave them stock, so these two idiots could still stand to lose a lot of money from this.

    yeah such deals are usually done in stocks google's relevancy sucks lately, but google is bringing lots of cool new services, so hard to say if they'll lose or not .. :)

    I think google sucks for trying to steal the video market. I hope youtubers flame on this and dump youtube/google. Now would be the time for someone else to start or launch a video alternative...

    I will buy a bottle of crystal to celebrate if this stock for stock transaction kicks google in the ass. Those damn monopolizing fools. FOCUS ON SEARCH DAMNIT! I mean... Dogpile beat google?
