Hopefully it would do them good business wise. Just wonder what everyone else's reaction would be. Probably good because Google is like a brand name in the computer world so YouTube will have more status. Pretty good I'm guessing this deal is.

both of them suck, they need more buttons for stuff like zoom and quality...so stuff can load faster for slower connections.
