Interesting. I ran marketing at Picasa, and I'm a little surprised Google's now offering that high of a payout for an install. They certainly werent worth a buck each to us pre-Google acquisition.

Hey Dan Back then, they didn't have as many Adwords advertisers. My guess is that they're going to start running adsense on published picture pages or something, down the line and it's now economical to them. Vinny
