YouTube announced a new service that will provide live streaming video content on its website. Any user who has received partner status will be eligible for YouTube Live status and can broadcast anywhere. The ability to stream live events and news to YouTube’s network makes it a tough site to compete with. In other news, Larry Page has finally settled in as Google’s CEO and quickly began to make changes. He promoted seven executives to important divisions that focus on mobile and social development. Page wants to excel in the social market and is even tying 25% of employee’s bonuses to Google’s social success. And finally, a recent survey by AdMob shows that the number one activity for tablet users is playing videogames. 84% of the 1,400 surveyed said they played games, while only 46% use the device for reading e-Books. Tablets even replaced 28% of respondent’s primary computers.
