Netbooks, or small and cheap laptop computers, are a hot sales item these days. Earlier today, Google announced it is creating a new operating system that will initially be designed for use on netbooks.
Computer maker Psion had claimed trademark rights to the term netbook, but has since struck a deal to allow the term to be used. Intel owns the domain Netbook.com; it will be interesting to see if the chip maker is going after the United Kingdom country code domain.
Also at Sedo, mixed martial arts video web site MMAshare.com has attracted a bid of 50,000 EUR ($69,300). According to tracking statistics at Sedo, the web site attracted about 350,000 unique visitors and 2 million page views over the past month.
