Robert X. Cringely predicts Google may get into TV advertising:
Does that mean Google isn't serious about getting into video distribution? No. Google has been talking to every TV network including one where I work, so I have to assume that they are serious about video distribution. But that doesn't have to mean that Google is planning to kill television as we have come to know it over the last 50-plus years. On the contrary, for all its interest in video distribution, I think Google sees a lot of its future in helping existing players in the TV business to make even more money. That's a prime use for those shipping container data centers and Google cubes..
