Google shuts down YouTube after it fulfills its mission

It turns out that YouTube hasn't been designed to deliver cat videos to us, but rather it has had a bigger mission. YouTube has actually been a contest to find the greatest video of all time. Now, almost 8 years after its launch, Google is shutting down YouTube, and it will choose the winning video tomorrow at midnight...

I'm wondering how big their servers are, and what amount of data storage do they use?

I Googled it for you, but I came across so much information that you may find interesting, you'd be better off doing your own search. Remember...if you have a question, just ask Google.

I wounder why they didn't mention a google glass win instead of $500 and mp3 player. That would be a good advertisement along the way.
Thank GOD it's Fools day because youtube is very important to me otherwise how can we watch jhon V exclusive phone reviews :)

actually the prank said they needed 10 years to find the best video and will relaunch Youtube in 2023 featuring just the best video.
