Rumor: You Tube To Be Releasing 1080p Video

As Microsoft, Apple and their brethren jockey for online position, Lifehacker.com, an online review site, reports that Google's immensely popular video download site YouTube will be making 1080p video available to its viewers within the next few days.

Online review site, Lifehacker.com, is reporting that Google's uber-popular, free video download site, YouTube.com, will be launching a 1080p HD video service in the next few days. This news comes as players like Microsoft and Apple jockey for position in the HD download world via their game platforms and various software systems.

Google has the money to afford the notably bigger file downloads and they also have the market share to protect so the rumor isn't that far flung.

Its not clear if Google is making the big money that they had hoped for with YouTube.com but with Apple dominating the movie and music download market with their iTunes - expect the search giant to look for ways to get in on the video download market past Jackass-type videos and homemade content.
