November 8 - Verizon/YouTube Deal

Verizon is purportedly in talks with the brand new Google owned, totally revamped (hardly) YouTube to make delivering videos onto your mobiles and TVs a breeze. Supposedly, according to The Wall Street Journal, customers using Verizon Wireless will be able to view various YouTube video creations on their mobiles through Verison's very own premium charged V Cast service. Obviously, this would be a great go-ahead for mobile Web 2.0 and Verizon also would offer YouTube videos as an on-demand feature of a TV service it is launching throughout the nation. Obciously, this is a clear rival to Cingular’s own video services, but can Cingular stand up to YouTube's almighty power? YouTube connects peopl of all ages, all races, all nations. Some sane, some, quite clearly, not. Again, Google's posssible copyright infringement with YouTube videos might pose a threat, but who knows. Once mobiles move into the Web 2.0 frontier further, things can only get wackier. I quote from the journal, "Under the terms being discussed, Verizon Wireless cellphone users would be able to access about 50 to 100 of the most popular videos on the YouTube Web site at any given time, people familiar with the matter said. " And as we all know, MySpace are rumoured to have a mobile version in the making. Mobile Web 2.0 is clearly taking off. What do you think?
