Now, I can officially say that Google bought YouTube for 1.65 billion dollars! Wow! Much money for a service that is yet-to-be profitable and I think it won’t be profitable anytime soon. It is like in the best days of Bubble 1.0 It seems that now it is Bubble 2.0 time. I think that this price is way too much for YouTube but Google stocks are also over-priced so they can buy over-priced services. It seems that Rupert Murdoch didn’t pay too much for Myspace, after all.
It seems that there is no exact date for Google birthday but if you visit Google you will see their logo with cake and number 8 .
I wonder if Google really knows exact date of their birthday. Before, they wrote on their web site that Google was officially launched on September 7, 1998 but now they use 27th as a date for their birthday.
Is that another buzz creator ?
Happy Birthday Google!
