YouTube to Begin Selling Music and Video Games

288w ago - Popular video-sharing site YouTube will soon begin to sell video games and music as part of a new advertising push, according to a Reuters report (linked above).

Through a partnership with Amazon.com, YouTube pages will feature a button that takes users to the online retailer, where they will be able to buy video games, songs, and music videos. The site will also offer an iTunes link for music downloads.

Acquired by search giant Google for $1.65 billion in 2006, YouTube is estimated to pull in $200 million via ad revenue across 2009, going by analyst predictions.

That figure marks a stark contrast to the Google's own advertising revenues, which are expected to reach $27 billion in 2009.
 

Disgruntled Ex-GameStop Employee Takes it to YouTube

292w ago - Below is a video of YouTube rants from a former GameStop employee known only as 'WhistleBlowerZero', who has made a 9 part (!) series in the style of Zero Punctuation to explain exactly how bad GameStop is to employees and customers alike.

Many of the tidbits within will hardly be a surprise to anyone who's ever set foot in one of their stores and/or had the misfortune of working retail, but the series seems to be targeted more at the casual consumer and perhaps people who think working at GameStop sounds like a great job.

Viva la revoluciĆ³n?
