Google aquires YouTube


Google YouTube
Finally, Google aquired YouTube. While no one tells that the deal wasn't attractive to YouTube (of course it was!), it seems that people all over the blogosphere are surprised with this move by Google, considering it bad for them. No, this deal can't possibly be bad for Google, and even if it will be bad for YouTube's users (which I don't doubt), it will take more time this way than if YouTube kept unbought (not that the comparison matters, since Yahoo! was also trying to buy YouTube). I mean, why are you all worried about Google's relations with Fox (MySpace owners) when the real Google competitors nowadays are Yahoo! and Microsoft? Suddenly, in the video content race, Google is now ahead, with 46% more market share.
