My two favourite tech companies have merged

YouTube has been bought by Google for $1.65 Billion.

For Google, the acquisition of YouTube would thrust the Web search leader quickly into the emerging market for video advertising, where it has only a tiny foothold compared with Yahoo Inc. and various Web start-ups, analysts said.

YouTube's explosive growth — it now serves 100 million videos per day — has been buoyed by the uploading and viewing of untold amounts of pirated video clips.

That makes Google the provider the following services to me;

Google Mail

Google Calendar

Google Picasa

Google Photos

Google YouTube

Google Spreadsheets

Google Analytics

I can remember many years ago when I worked for the National bank and everyone else used Alta Vista they thought I was an idiot for using Google. I rated them then and I rate them now.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
