Google Snatches Up YouTube

Whoa, didn't see that one coming, and it looks like there's a lot of others that didn't either. I'm not going to drag on about how the deal like other blogers have, just a round-up of just how big of a deal it really is. This is likely to dwarf any other news for the next few days. Check out what others are saying...
