Q.: What's TubeSurf?
A.: TubeSurf is a video search tool that lets you search YouTube, MySpace Videos, Google Video and Yahoo! Video at once from a single location.
Q.: How does TubeSurf work?
A.: TubeSurf's search results are powered by Google.
Q.: Why Google?
A.: Because it's still the best search engine out there.
Q.: OK. What if I wanted to search with Google itself, instead of using TubeSurf?
A.: You're welcome.
Q.: And how do I do that?
A.: Go to Google and type the following query in the search box: your_query site:youtube.com OR site:vids.myspace.com OR site:video.google.com OR site:video.yahoo.com
Q.: Thanks. But why should I use TubeSurf, then?
A.: To save time and keystrokes: instead of typing mile-long queries with advanced search operators, just type a few words in the search box and hit the blue button, and TubeSurf will do the rest for you.
Q.: That's neat. How do you do that?
Q.: What does the "Beta!" sticker on TubeSurf's home page mean?

Q.: Do you really think this thing is "web 2.0"?
A.: Uhm, no. Not really.
Q.: Do you think TubeSurf is useful?
A.: We believe so.
Q.: What's your business model?
