Rumors are flying that Google is about to buy YouTube for 1.6B (damn it, I knew I should have tried to land a job there). Hopefully they don’t turn it into the turn that is Google Video. I’m sure this makes everybody happy at the major labels and networks, they are about to get deep pockets to sue. Well, I mean, I doubt this will happen, I’m sure all the content providers will have a love fest with Google/YouTube in the end. But really, why didn’t Yahoo! step up to the plate, if anyone needs this, it’s them. Looking down the road, I’m sure we are going to see some Google/iTunes/YouTube synergy.
