In an update to Tuesday’s article on the pending acquisition of YouTube by Google, the web site of Universal Tube & Rollform Equipment Corporation—utube.com—crashed due to excessive traffic. Apparently a large number of people heard about YouTube for the first time and typed in “utube”. Oops. This is also why top-level web pages shouldn’t be bandwidth intensive.
UPDATE: Universal Tube & Rollform Equipment Corp. has now sued YouTube.
