I am changing how things happen at Startup Meme and trying to add new life into this blog. While sharing tech news is great I think it is better to provide our readers with more useful stuff like videos and infographics. Expect us to share more of such items over time.
As of now, we bring to you a video via our friends at Make use of. This video explains how much does the Internet weigh and frankly speaking, it is far below my expectations at least. Enjoy the video and share it if you like! Read More »
Google appears to be rooting out accounts for YouTube and integrating with Google accounts system. We are already aware that new accounts on YouTube are created by using the cross site access functionality to use the online video sharing service. Most of the YouTube users from the pre-Google purchase have YouTube accounts that are not connected to Google, the idea to have one access for everything is a clever idea for sure.

I don’t know why but whenever there is any such news about Google or its related services I feel glad to talk about it. However those 2 billion its average to only 15 minutes a user, meaning that there is still a lot of room improvement and that online videos are still way behind television, given that people spend 5 hours daily on an average.
