Will Google Aquire YouTube?

I am really bad with predictions, but I would say it won’t happen. I thought it wouldn’t happen when it was rumored Google would acquire Opera .. I feel the same with this one but when I read the Shoemoney has a lead that Google would have made a final 2.1 Billion offer for You Tube I feel it might be serious, he is often right! Good or bad move for Google? Definitly a move I won’t understand if it happens. And if it doesn’t happen, I guess the rumor or the numbers we hear are not true because when you are offered 2.1 Billion for something that does not yet make significative revenues and that has a revenue potential of only (?!) 150 Millions per year , selling for 2.1 Billion looks like kind of a good idea.

The product definitly has future (I was reading on someone’s blog today telling that his four kids liked to watch videos on You Tube better than on MTV … sorry I do not remember what blog it was). But is it worth 2.1 Billions?

[…] Shoemoney was right, I was wrong. Well, not that wrong, if Google was ready to pay that much, I was sure YouTube would sell. Here’s the news on Techcrunch : Google Acquires YouTube for 1.6 Billion in Shares. […]

Hey guys,
I have an iMac G5 running tiger 10.4.7 and I an having a wierd problem. Whenever I go to a site that has an embedded youtube, flash or some kind of video, there is no sound. If it a quicktime file there is no problem. There is not sound no matter what broswer I use, firefox, camino, safari, or shiira. And keep in mind that about a week ago I was not having this issue.

Help Would be awesome
Thanks!
