Rumor: Google to aquire YouTube ?

Michael Arrington estimates a 40% chance of the rumor beeing true was right.

The price tag swings around $1.5 – $2 billion.

So is Google Video’s winning streak so far, that Google is paying 2 billion to not see YouTube in front ?

Update: It’s the real thing. Google and YouTube are in acquisition talks. The Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times are also publishing concrete reports about the acquisition.

  1. A good reason to buy it: it’s good business :)

    Google Video missed the personal touch that YouTube can provide. No matter who buys it, I’m sure they’ll keep the brand alive.

  2. IMHO, YouTube is to online videos, as Google is to online searches.

    Let’s be real: if you need to find a video about anything you search YouTube.

    And anyway, 2 Billion seems a LOT to me.

  3. Ha Ha Ha! Nice Joke or else nice rumour. I don’t think so youtube needs any kind of psrtnership with others. It is because the youtube is has been known in world wide. Everybody knows what youtube is, So i think its a good joke. Any way nice rumour thank you.
