Chinese media, citing gov't reports, said the number of online video users in China hit 325 mil at the end of '11. That follows earlier reports that the total number of Internet users in China now tops 550 mil. The rising number of Chinese online users is good news for Youku (YOKU - News), China's top online video company, which said in March it plans to merge with rival Tudou (TUDO - News) in a $1.1 bil deal. Apple (AAPL - News), Lenovo and other mobile Internet device makers will also benefit. Youku shares fell 3.2% to 23.80. Apple shares fell 0.3% to 577.32.
