    August 6, 2010

    We all have friends who procrastinate their holiday purchases until the last few days before Christmas, but do you know anyone who has already started their holiday shopping? You should! By the end of this month, 35% of consumers will already have begun their holiday shopping.

  • Release Notes: Playlist Bar, music listings, annotations upgrades...

    August 6, 2010

    What's new on YouTube since we last met? Let us count the things...

    Slide has already created compelling social experiences for tens of millions of people

  • YouTube Summer School, Session 4: History

    August 6, 2010

    While we enjoy looking ahead and thinking big, we also take to heart the famous quote from George Santayana: "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." That’s why for this week’s session of YouTube Summer School, we’re taking some time to review the past, to help us better understand the people, events and decisions that have shaped our times.
