Protecting users from Firesheep and other Sidejacking attacks with SSL

Google is finalising a service for searching online video clips. This is different to Google Video which lets you search the subtitles of last night's US TV.

The new service will search for relevant video clips online and show you a ten second preview. Browsers will then be sent onto the relevant website to pay for the whole clip.

The service will launch in the next two months, according to sources quoted by news.com. Eventually Google will offer payment services for video and is already in talks with Hollywood studios about content.

Video search is predicted to be the next big battleground for search engines. The worry for content providers is how much of a slice of royalties Google will want for delivering viewers. Yahoo and AOL already offer similar services.
