Google Video Extends Search

Google has realized that the cloistered approach to video search isn't working. The company is now indexing videos from across the web, since YouTube and Blinkx have been kicking its butt.

There was no reason for Google or any video search engine to be self contained, so this is a good move for all.

And by the way, did you see that ad for the Da Vinci Code on the Google Video home page? It looks like the ad creep is transitioning from personalized to reg'lar Google pretty quick.

Imagine if Google started selling sponsorships on a daily basis to its home page. The company could make a boatload if they gave a movie premiere a one-day pass. It's coming.
