Video search -- just what we needed!
Not too surprising to find the big players in search (Google, Yahoo!) now looking at video; makes sense with all of the video and visual programming and files we now have crammed into our computers, mobile phones, handhelds (and the list goes on).
AOL doesn't want to be left out of the party, so it's recent purchase of Truveo, which now makes AOL a leader in video and search services (apparently). Seems this will help AOLers shift through its recently launched video service, which offers thousands of hours of old television shows for free. Ads, like in the good old days of B&W TV, will foot the bill.
Fans of classic programs as Welcome Back Kotter, Babylon 5, Lois & Clark, La Femme Nikita and Growing Pains rejoice!
