OurHouse.com an online provider of tools and hardware, now redirects to Amazon. I like this part of the statement:
"OurHouse.com has sold some of its assets, including our Web address, to Amazon.com...we'd like to recommend Amazon.com as the online retailer where you can continue to find great values..."
Not trying to be snarky, but you'd think they had a CHOICE about whether they'd like to recommend Amazon or not. I can't imagine there was a long line to buy the web address--who else is going to want it?
Amazon is becoming the elephant's graveyard of dot-com domains, since they buy them for pennies and reap traffic from them. It's good business for Amazon, though it won't help with that pesky problem of making enough money off of all those customers...but hey, why worry?
