Am I The Only One Who’s Noticed That…

Google seems to be buying out the competition? Isn’t there some kind of monopolies ruling in place to stop all things from going Google?

God, I wish I’d thought of the YouTube phenomena, barely twenty months in, and those guys make $1.65bn from selling it? Why couldn’t I have been born a computer nerd…

    LOL, hubby showed me the announcement, but I didn’t realize they sold for that much. Good for them, but it was funny how many people got pissed off. I mean…is Google going to make it cost something or something? I don’t pay for anything else Google offers.

    But then, lol, I’m cheap. 🙂

    The Google guys are nice. And they say (at least for the next five minutes) the companies will operate independently. I love YouTube. My kids actually turned me on to it.

    I’m with you on the computer nerd stuff Karen. A good dose of being a risk taker too. Most of my risks are calculated so I’m sadly lacking in both areas.

    I figure they’re probably taking a page from Microsoft’s book. I read an article in Wired along those lines a few days ago, in fact.

    I love YouTube, too! 🙂
