Google to show YouTube videos on other Web sites

It's looking to make money from ads attached to the videos

Google's AdSense is offering Web publishers who participate in the program the ability to start displaying ad-supported video clips from Google's YouTube on their sites.

Google sees the new program as a win for all involved.

The program allows advertisers to distribute their video-based ads across the AdSense network, not just on YouTube, Google said in a statement. YouTube content partners can earn extra revenue from their clips. And Google will also earn money from ads attached to the video clips, which will be delivered "within a customized embedded player that's ad supported," Google said.

The ads appear as banner ads at the top of the video clip or as links on the bottom once the user clicks on the video, according to Google. Advertisers will be charged on a cost-per-click or cost-per-impression basis.

Google is working with a select group of YouTube providers that have signed consent forms, including TV Guide Broadband, Expert Village, Mondo Media, lonelygirl15, Extreme Elements and Ford Models to supply the video content.

The ads are available now in the US for English-language Web sites.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
