UTUBE Site Swamped by YouTube Usersposted by MR WAVETHEORY at 10/12/2006 07:03:00 PM
Due to the spillover effect, the site UTUBE.com is getting over a quarter million unique users. UTUBE's headquarters are nothing like YouTube's. However, while YouTube may the starlet of the online video craze, UTUBE gets top honors for being the more experienced online e-commerce company. UTUBE has been online since 1996, while YouTube has only been online since 2005.
The owner of UTUBE turned down a $1 million for the domain. The CEO is holding out for offers of $2.5 to $3.0 million. It is the sixth most popular US manufacturing site, ahead of Whirlpool.
