After barely surviving the early years of the Internet — often called Web 1.0 — Lycos Europe is hoping to ride the wave of Web 2.0 with Jubii, which combines search, e-mail, chat, photo and file storage, phone texting, blogging, Internet phoning and other services that are increasingly popular with young Internet users. The company expects to introduce Jubii officially this month.
Lycos Europe is also forging ahead under its own name as a leading chat service and Internet portal in Europe. [...]
A separate entity, Lycos Inc., which was purchased by Daum Communications of South Korea, owns the Lycos trademark in the United States, so the European portal cannot trade on its name there.
This seems more like a communications tool. Personally I think a "tool based" approach has a much higher chance of getting critical mass than a portal.
I'm curious, though:
How do you pronounce "Jubii" in the US? As "You bee"? Or as "You bye"? Or something else?
Please, someone, inject some spice into new-generation graphical web designs before we are all subjected to an endless webscape of visual monotony.
