Today, May 21, YouTube celebrates its seven-year anniversary with, what else, a video retrospective covering the moments and milestones in the history of YouTube.

It’s hard to believe that YouTube is less than ten years old; the now ubiquitous service sees over a billion views a day and serves up millions upon millions of videos all around the globe.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    I don’t know how I would get through my day st work without all of the music on YouTube. Man it’s so great. Thank you google for buying it and funding it with all the data you have mined from me.

    It’s cool to see, but the changes making it slow to load and the mobile application search is faulty.

    Ironically, it seems like ANYTHING Google (since they own Youtube) on mobile is pretty sucky, of late. Every time they update something, it makes things worse. They are fast becoming a real threat to snatch the annual “If If Ain’t Broke, We Can Fix That” Award from Microsoft’s hands.
