Google Rumored To Be In Talks To Buy YouTube [UPDATE] October 9, 2006 4:26 pm

Update – 10/9/2006:

It has now been confirmed that Google has acquired YouTube for $1.65 billion.

More information about the sale can be read at TV Week.

Google is reportedly interesting in purchasing the online video sharing community for $1.6 billion, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal this morning.

Considered the most popular and perhaps the most frequented online video sharing community on the web, 34 million unique visitors a month, YouTube would make a worthy purchase for any company willing to spend the money required.

Google had no comment.

I think that would be great for those two Google business boys – but do they really need the money?! But I suppose if I was in their position I would aswell.
