Widescreen YouTube

YouTube wants to be in your living room. The Google video outlet is taking steps to increase its reach:

“YouTube is taking another step in transitioning from computer monitors to television screens by displaying its videos in full widescreen format.

The website, owned by Google Inc., announced the change on Tuesday through its blog. The new format will make it easier to view YouTube videos on wide-screen flat-panel televisions and monitors.”

In the future, Google may not be just a name associated with search, advertising and the internet. Google may be a name in entertainment.
