After a great deal of speculation, discussions and debates, Google is finally set to acquire YouTube for $1.65m, a paltry sum indeed. The official press release says that YouTube will continue to operate independently. This ofcourse leaves the question of what will happen to Google Video. Will it continue to run independently? Or will it now search within YouTube’s videos as well? I guess all this remains to be seen and it is still to early to decide which way Google will go. What I would like is an integrated Google Account login.
