Google Buys YouTube, Apple Next
Unless you've been living under a, uh, Classic II, you've probably heard that Google is buying YouTube. The hosting company for this site coming together with our favorite source for pirated Daily Show reruns. So hopelessly romantic!
Anywho, this announcement coincided with the only-slightly-smaller launch of the Official Google Mac Blog. OGMB, which sounds like the love child of a stodgy government agency and those guys who did the song from Pretty In Pink, is the second Mac-related blog to claim status of officiality, the first being our friends TUAW, The Unofficial Apple Weblog. Say it like a kung fu dude: tu-awwwww! Yeah, that's what they need, some ninjas on TUAW to make those Pimp My Mac Mini segments more badass. Yeah and then Chuck Norris will smash some PCs just by lookin' at 'em! WTF!!!
Sorry, we were watching Studio 60 tonight and got mad hyper. Anywayyy, OGMB launches with a totally-not-boring corporate post about how Google *hearts* Dashboard, and how Google Calendar actually works with Safari, and--whoa slice--Google Earth has a Mac version! Step aside, Omni Group, we have ourselves a real fanboy! Still, they're going for legitimacy with links to Gruber, MacCentral, and, well I'll be crappin', it's TUAW!
It got us thinking, hey now, Google might actually be getting serious about gittin' it on with Apple after all. See, Google's worth about 130 billion in stock, and what's Apple? A limp, flaccid 63 billion. And Google's got a piggy bank with lots of non-imaginary money too. Thinking what we're thinking? Yup, Google's buying Apple next! Woop woop! I mean, Eric Schmidt has already gone all Yosemite Sam in Apple's boardroom, having kicked Fred Anderson out after dissing his chick car. Plus, Google's already integrated into the Safari search bar, it's not like it would be hard to integrate it into everything else. Then Google will port Mac OS X to Ajax and O'Grady will finally have Mac OS X "Lite" see the light of day.
Now they just have to buy Microsoft and we'll be set.
