It's a bit of a shame that someone who put it together made a mistake in the credits. Instead of Craig Silverstein they wrote Craig Silverman :(

"Wouldn’t it be nice to have all the information stored in one place"
   – Yeah it is call the internet. Although you will not find the place your hide your house key, you will find how to break into houses without a trace. What is the deference?

Interplanetary? So does this mean that Mars will now get a better internet connection than New Zealand? Then again there are some people who seem to be on a different planet that it would be good to email.

Where I put my house key is something I should remember and Google should not be party to, thanks.

Note to Google: get some work done.

Why can't you upload a new version of a YouTube video and keep the same URL?

Flickr allows this but I guess it could have undesirable consequences if YouTube allowed this. Say someone uploaded a really funny video which got millions of views and then reached the top spot of the Most Viewed videos; you could then sell that placement to advertisers and upload a video ad for their product instead. Since many people view the Most Viewed videos, that would then get lots of views. Not too serious but it would be annoying...

There are benefits and risks to that. Imagine a terrific video gets 1000s of "5 star" ratings and has people in the comments shout "bravo, I agree"... and then the video owner replaces that video with a video advertising viagra, or inverting the original political message, etc. And imagine people embedding that video on their own site. Perhaps they embedded a kid-friendly video on a kid's site, and all of a sudden, it's showing some semi-shocking stuff.

Cynical minds think alike... ;-)
