Google's YouTube Acquisition Kills uTube


While everyone's fawning all over Google's purchase of YouTube, the poor guys over at pipe and tube equipment company Universal Tube whose web address is wish the party would end because, apparently, several million people can't tell the difference between YouTube and Utube causing the company's president Ralph Girkins to tell CNN, "It's killing us." Indeed it is. The site is currently available. Hey Google, help a little guy out. Send a spare server or three over to these guys so your $1.6 billion party doesn't put this guy out of business.

They should just put up some ads, change the name of their business and sit back and watch the money roll in. I'm sure that this is a little disruptive, but with a name like uTube, I'm sure that they can make quite a bit more from selling the domain then they'll make fixing toliets.
