Google to buy YouTube?
Google is currently in talks to snatch up YouTube for $1.6 billion, TechCrunch is reporting. The blog's source says discussions are taking place and there is still a possibility the deal may not go through.
Google refused to comment on the rumor, and YouTube was not available for comment, according to a follow-up item in the Wall Street Journal.
Visitors to YouTube, founded in February 2005 by Steve Chen and Chad Hurley, watch more than 100 million videos a day.
