    YouTube was faaaaaaaaaarrrrrrr much better than Google Video. I think we all know that. They bought blogspot when it wasn't THAT hot, and now, look at Blogspot!!! They are the king of blogging. Youtube could always easily kick google video butt!

    Good purchase for google!

    That's not bad. YouTube was created in February 2005 for a sweet $92 million per month ROI!

    In my opinion a waste of money. They should have used that money to going back to becoming a good search engine again instead they are becoming more and more a business which only cares about the bottom line. What made Google great in the first place were people now its just another money making machine where quality has taken a backseat to profit making.

    yeah I guess we will have to see how they use youtube as a tool.

    if they continue youtube as a seperate entity that it's a good choice to aquire it and with the future of video on the net it's probably a steal. If they turn it into a google company that it is a very bad idea.

    for your comment on them becoming a good search company they still are the best and continue to move forward with things like google video being integrated within the search bar.

    I just hope they continue youtube on the path that it is on.
