Work for free? (video)

Work for free? (video)

Tweet This video is pretty hilarious. This is what happens when an advertising agency documents the responses of other types of business owners when they are asked about working for free. We’re all too familiar with people asking us to get them media placements and then paying us afterwards. Nah, no thanks. The Youtube description: Architects don’t give away their blueprints. Diners don’t fork out free meals. Personal Trainers don’t sign over their intellectual property on spec. This video pokes fun at the speculative creative bidding process in new business pitches. We believe there’s a better way for agencies and […]

Such a scam. check and cash This guy does a pretty good job of explaining it:

Start a Google+ Hangout on YouTube

Start a Google+ Hangout on YouTube

Tweet We were perusing an article that included the latest happenings with Google+. We’re intrigued by Google+, but have to really enjoy it. After all, for all the talk from Google about how many million early adopters there are, I don’t know many of them. I’ve got several friends on Google+, but not enough to keep me entertained. After all, they aren’t on it very much; not like they are on Facebook anyway. But, here is one feature that we think is neat. You can now start a Google+ Hangout on YouTube. When you are watching a video you like, […]

Google shutting down Google Video

Google shutting down Google Video

Tweet Anyone out there using Google Video? Didn’t think so. Then you won’t have to worry that Google announced this weekend that its shutting down Google Video. It makes perfect sense since Google owns YouTube, which is the largest online video content website anywhere with 144.1 million unique visitors per month. “Later this month, hosted video content on Google Video will no longer be available for playback,” read an email sent to Google Video users. “Google Video stopped taking uploads in May 2009 and now we’re removing the remaining hosted content. We’ve always maintained that the strength of Google Video […]

Google overhauling YouTube?

Google overhauling YouTube?

Tweet According to a report in the Wall St. Journal on Wednesday, Google has big changes in mind for their YouTube website. They want YouTube to be better prepared for the increasing amount of televisions that are connected to the internet, according to people who are familiar with the situation. Payday Advance Orlando So, YouTube is apparently going to reorganize their homepage and focus it more on different “channels” like sports or music or whatever. What I found interesting was the part about how YouTube would be offering “premium channels,” with five to ten hours or so of professionally produced, […]

Guy who leaked The Today Show “what is internet” video gets fired

Guy who leaked The Today Show “what is internet” video gets fired

Tweet Remember that neat clip that popped up a couple weeks ago from “The Today Show” in 1994? If not, it’s right here. The video shows Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel openly wondering what the internet is. It’s not embarrassing, it was 1994! Well, apparently the guy at NBC who discovered that clip and leaked it on – ironically – the internet has been fired. Rob Pegoraro of the Washington Post tweeted about it a couple of days ago. Yes, the guy may have broken a rule about releasing certain things, but it was important. It went viral for a […]

YouTube’s mobile viewership soars in 2010

Tweet YouTube revealed this week that their viewership on mobile devices grew quite a bit in 2010. Like, a whole lot. As in, tripled. Yep, they said that their mobile viewership hit 200 million viewers this past year. The site credited much of that to the announcement that Vevo’s huge music collection was added to its app for Android phones. And of course with all those viewers, YouTube will now try harder to monetize all this. They are running more pre-roll ads now on the mobile site. “This not only expands distribution opportunities for partners like Vevo, but also opens […]

Lady Gaga is the queen of Twitter, see her acceptance speech

Tweet We aren’t exactly sure what this says about our society, but it is what it is. As of this posting, Lady Gaga has 5,725,109 followers (could be 5,725,110 if we decide to follow her too), making her the most followed person on the popular micro-blogging site. That is pretty unreal. She has more followers than Britney Spears, more than Barack Obama, more than….well….everyone. You can see that it didn’t take long for her to tape her acceptance speech for YouTube. She is definitely, um…weird. And she’s also definitely rich. Forbes magazine estimated that she made $62 million between June […]
