The Internet Is A Series Of UTubes (And They're Clogged)
from the ooops dept
So, while you think enviously about the $1.65 billion YouTube snagged from Google (or, as someone pointed out, approximately $3 million per day of their existence), you can feel some sympathy for Universal Tube & Rollform Equipment Corp — owners of the site utube.com. Turns out, plenty of people have been hearing the name YouTube and assuming it was UTube. So, those people have been checking out the wrong site… and knocking it completely offline (which is why we won’t bother even linking to it now). Of course, the head of Universal Tube knows an opportunity when his web server stats show it to him. He’s already turned down a million dollar offer on the domain, and is holding out for at least $2.5 million.
