Point your cellphone’s Web browser to m.youtube.com and prepare yourself for the best that YouTube has to offer. The company launched a mobile version of its productivity-destroying Web site today. It’s supposed to work best on 3G cellphones, so if you’re not up to speed don’t even bother. (I tried a T-Mo BlackBerry and ran into an error screen. Shucks.)
In and of itself, who cares. Big deal: mobile YouTube. That’s not new, as anyone with an iPhone will tell you. But taken on a macro level, it’s another step to getting content to your cellphone. Content that one day you’ll have to consume ads to see.
