    The text-picture security things are going to be useless if this happens.

    it is very interesting.. you are right may google count as back link. it will be nice. :) Also i read, google will index all changes on web sites only in 5 minutes. So we won't wait for index for 1-2 days any more.

    Shows why google is on top ... always thinking ahead and pushing the boundaries. Never settles for being on top.

    I think it will be a very difficult task to read the text correctly with unusual fonts. So the capthas may still work. Will they count the links in video? I don't think they will do it for now.

    Was going to blog about this yesterday, but decided against it since I didn't want to bore my readers. This is amazing if they can pull it off... but I'm not sure how efficient the system can be.

    Google is trying to improve its algorithm for Google Images, that's all.

    Not easy it is MPEG 7 standards I think, a lot of processing and algorithm needed for such a task.

    Wow, I can think of how that will screw several things up. Of course, there are plenty of pros to this as well, but the cons are almost equal.
