Just when my Apple stock is finally increasing, DIVX has to public. Iíve already missed out on buying Google stock when it went public, so I may not want to make that mistake again.

YouTube is also thinking about going public to.

YouTube

-Free
-Easy to use, it just works (Streaming QT I'm looking at you)
-Standardized, all the videos are same size, same controls, same GUI
-Tagging helps to find relevant videos
-And most important of all... embed-able!

That DivX is pretty damn slick. I posted a demo on Stage6 (they're still in Alpha testing), but it's far, far superior to anything on youtube. Full screen, great rez, fast loading.

Now, if only I hadn't spent all my money on video gear...

This stock ends up going up higher that I thought. The starting price was about $16.00 and now its $23.36. If this stock keeps increasing at this pace, it may surpass Apple (AAPL) stock by next year. I thought Google stock went up quick when it went public but this oneís a rocket.
