Google video pitfalls

Google has admitted making mistakes during the launch of its Google Video store, one of the major competitors to Apple's iTunes. Vice President Marissa Mayer said that television shows available for sale were not promoted well enough, making it difficult for customers to purchase shows like "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," and "Survivor," according to a Seattle Post-Intelligencer report, which also stated that the high bar set by iTunes' video download service is making it rather difficult for other companies like Google to follow suit. David Pogue of the New York Times said that the Google video store is "appallingly half-baked," according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Other problems yet to be ironed out of Google video are the copy-protected shows which block users from viewing them from any device not connected to the internet. Google has recently changed its website design to facilitate easier searching and downloading of video content, according to the report.
