I'm pissed off with this, to be honest. Google has recently "upgraded" its toolbar - and they've totally screwed it up. Many of us who have this toolbar are now having browser problems and Google is remaining silent on the issues people are upset about. We weren't even give the choice of having this upgrade or not - it just happened. If you try to go back to the earlier version, it happens again.

Google should sort out its existing problems before taking on another enterprise. They've gone from being for the people to being just another corporation concerned with profit over customer service. Bah. I'm sorely disappointed.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Thatīs the start to the next internet bubble....

Youtube has been founded by some investors 1 1/2 years ago and didnīt make any profit ... In fact they do not even have revenue, they only have costs since there are no ads on the site.... Guess what is happening soon....

Google is becoming more and more frightening!

I have banner ads and an occasional popup (that gets by my popup software) on youtube now.

It would seriously affect my usage of youtube if they started running a 30 second ad at the beginning of every clip, like CNN or MSNBC does...I sure hope they don't go that route.

Copyright will be a huge issue, now that people have an entity like Google to sue...

Google has some serious cash laying around.  They give their workers free breakfast and lunch, free snacks, free laundry...and host of other crap, all really designed to keep them at their desk longer.  People love to work for them but they have a burn-out culture.  They will become the next Microsoft, all power (and very profitable) and hated by just about everyone.
