YouTube Getting an Overhaul?

by Leo Watson / August 3, 2006 5:06 PM PDT

If you go to YouTube it is down, but the title of the page is "Your Digital Video Repository". I know this is probably just knit-picking but could that mean they're doinf a major upgrade?

Probably nothing more than routine. They could offer digital file storage and charge for it, but that's not what YouTube is about.

...over the long haul. Bandwidth = $$$, I don't really see where they are making enough income. Perhaps they might do a tiered service. Movie Studios, music groups, record producers, etc. will pay for better quality delivery....while the free service is lower res. Yeah, that's a great idea! Maybe we should apply that to the internet.</kidding>*

*The last bracket is for those that are humor-impaired and will think I'm totally serious. Although, I believe Freud believed we spoke our truths, even in jest.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
