Google borgs another company

Google makes another interesting purchase, and today’s lucky lottery winner is online streaming video service Episodic, who are as gullible as oysters in a walrus’s tummy happy as clams about being acquired by thieving lying turncoat mental patients joining a world class widely despised respected brand. My guess is Google needs to add some pizazz and income potential to YouTube and none of the geniuses in the people’s republic of engineers running the show beneath management didn’t have an inclination or desire to work on that problem. Whaddya’ do? Buy some brains and intellectual property who’ve already solved the problem. Ta’ da! Enter Episodic, bring in the lawyers, sign the contracts, borg the technology into YouTube, and cross your fingers and hope that baby makes a bigger revenue to line Squirrel Boy’s coffers.

YouTube takes a dive

Conspiracy theorists are having a field day.  Wikipedia goes down yesterday (though not for me, and Lastangelman kept writing me asking if I still had access to it) and now YouTube goes down today.  It was for about an hour. Are there some Chinese hackers at work due to the recent Google news? Maybe….maybe not.  CNN reports here.

iTunes, Hulu and YouTube: The New TV Networks

As the platform wars rage amongst the clouds, a new battle is being fought for your eyeballs and it ain’t HBO, NBC, or FOX.

BTW, ever wonder why they don’t have pocket HDTVs, yet, or why they haven’t bothered making converters for your old portable televisions? It’s because of your mobile phones, jackasses. People can get TV content off the mobile net, including sportscasts. And if you wanna’ watch old MASH or I Love Lucy reruns, there’s portable DVD players that can do that, too.

Makes me wanna start a pirate analog station,

just for the fun of it.
