The Google guys discuss the future of newspapers

Hannah Clark of caught up with "The Google Guys in Davos." She reports that Google's Sergey Brin and Larry Page as well as YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley "wouldn't comment on a rumored deal to run BBC content on Google Video."

They did comment on the future of newspapers -- but they disagreed.

"I think it's a long time before [computer] displays will be as good as paper," Page told Clark.

"You do?" said a surprised Brin. He then asked, "What do you call a long time?"
