It looks like www.utube.com is still for sale. And that's not a typo. We're not talking about YouTube, the video sharing site that Google purchased this week for $2.2 billion.
The other 'Tube belongs to Universal Tube and Rollerform Equipment Corp. And an owner of the Ohio-based tubing recycling company said the extra traffic from misdirected video searchers is slowing his site down. "It's a huge problem," Ralph Girkins said yesterday. "The guy who hosts my website can't handle [it]."
He said an offer made on behalf of YouTube for $1.3 million was "just too low". He said he's hoping for at least $3.4 million. And it's all for a name he probably bought for less than $200.
