On YouTube, a lot of the legwork has already been done for you. There are playlists galore available for seemingly any interest. But if the user whose playlists you've come to rely on deactivates his or her account, deletes the playlist, changes privacy settings, or otherwise disappears from YouTube, you're out of luck. Instead of recreating other users' playlists, there is a handy Web app from Amit Agarwal of Digital Inspirations that lets you copy them to your account.
So much focus is placed on texting and driving. Yet it's easy to forget that the mere presence of a cell phone offers a myriad of distractions to a thoughtless driver.

The worlds of music, technology, and romance were turned upside down earlier this week, when rumors emerged that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were unhappy with YouTube founder Chad Hurley.
TMZ first reported that Hurley had turned up at West's quite spontaneous proposal ceremony at AT&T Park in San Francisco and proceeded not only to film the event, but then to post 2 and a half minutes of footage to his new video-sharing site MixBit.
It was said that the anger was so great that a lawsuit would follow. Oddly enough, it has.
If I were to propose to my one, true, twice-married love, I am not sure I would hire the San Francisco Giants' ballpark to do it.
Then again, I am not Kanye West and am not currently in love with Kim Kardashian.
When you invite a teeming horde of your nearest and dearest to such a proposal, you make them sign a confidentiality agreement.
But you love them more than you trust them.

Those with the unlimited access are also said to get ad-free … Read more

Bad Lip Reading is one of the best channels on YouTube. For real. If the name didn't give it away, it takes existing footage and then posits what the people in that footage could be saying just by reading their lips.
After five months of nothing from the channel, it's just dropped it's newest bomb: "Medieval Land Fun-Time World." It tells the deeply dramatic tale of theme-park owner Eddie Stark, whose employees aren't performing up to scratch. … Read more
YouTube is still the king of Internet video, but AOL's takeover of Adap.tv last month is making it the richest in that kingdom.
In ComScore's Web video rankings for September, AOL topped Google as the property with the most video ads watched last month, with 3.7 billion views compared to the YouTube parent's 3.2 billion.
It was in September that AOL closed its takeover of Adap.tv, a company that automates the marketplace of video ads. The $405 million takeover was the largest for Chief Executive Tim Armstrong since he took command of AOL, … Read more
