"No fancy speech-to-text recognition, just the closed captioning provided by the television networks, and no direct links to videocontent either." -- Slashdot

Flashback: "Google Rules Out Video Search"
"Speaking at the recent World Economic Forum in Davos, Google co-founder Sergey Brin explained why the search engine does not intend to offer users a video search feature. Brin cited problems with standards and compatibility in the video software industry, as well as a lack of content, as reasons why he remains uninterested in developing an AltaVista-style video search."
