YouTube on your mobile - too late!

My blogging colleague StressedBadger pointed us to YouTube's plan to get on to a mobile platform within a year. Sorry guys - too late. Click here.

In fact the new offering from Orb Networks gives you access to not only YouTube but GoogleVideo and others. Orb have an interesting earlier application which allows you to access anything stored on your pc from your mobile - answering the memory storage issue for mobile phones. In fact I think they're so interesting they're going straight in the 'one's to watch'.

But I digress. Given mobile internet's instant ability to turn video blogging (and any other form of socially-networked co-creation of content) into cash, perhaps Chad & Co missed a trick.
Even on a simple YouTube the publisher-You the Consumer model, there has always been cash in them there phones.

Apparently YouTube have 'declined to comment'.

The rate of change is so rapid it's difficult for one person to keep up to speed. Let's pool our thoughts, share our reactions and, who knows, even reach some shared conclusions worth arriving at?
