Probably they started this for their google video service, as that gave prices you could set videos at. (and had it marked for future use).

Google is starting to scare me to be honest.
Microsoft also started like this, revolutionary and sympathetic, and now it threatens to take over the world.

It's like in 20 years from now Google Glup will actually be for real...

OK, let me dig the computer history back up. Both Windows and DOS were NOT invented by Microsoft Corp. Windows was invented by Wang Laboratories Ltd., and DOS was invented by Seattle Computers - Microsoft just BOUGHT both Operating Systems with appropriate licenses, and started developing them from the points, where the original inventors of the operating systems stopped developing them. And not to mention, that DOS was actually BOUGHT by Microsoft, because IBM requested it.
The same goes for other Microsoft programs as well. Microsoft Internet Explorer was NOT invented by Microsoft - it's just an heavily edited and highly developed version of the good old NCSA Mosaic, which was INVENTED by NCSA.

I hope you all get it.

Well the link won't work for me - but imo google is diversifying too much. Google video search is nowhere near as good as yahoo's and certainly not even close to blinxx video search!

Actualy, I am pretty sure the route of most of the Windows-like stuff was some old Xerox Operating system.
Think they were even the first to have a mouse-based system too. Boy, bet there pissed off with both microsoft AND apple for being more successfull.

err..google dosnt have a video search, not as in "searching for videos"

Googlevideo is actualy something completely different: It searchs transcripts of TV shows recently aired. (using the subtitles).

In future google video will be like www.newgrounds.com, but with videos.
They are allowing anyone to submit a video, and set a price (or free) for it.
This was the first service annouced were they have user-money interation stuff, so its almost certainly what triggered them to do-a-pay-pal.

I can really imagine people makeing livings from makeing amataur movies/shows now actualy. ^_^
