eBaum’s World Named One of the 10 Funniest Sites on the Internet By PC World
eBaum's World (www.ebaumsworld.com) has been named one of the "10 Funniest Sites on the Internet" by PC World magazine.
After completing what the magazine says were "months of exhaustive research, including lie-detector tests performed on laboratory rats," PC World has assembled a top 10 list of its "favorite sites to visit for a few minutes of levity," with eBaum's being listed second in the article.
"It's extremely exciting to be ranked by PC World as one of the top 10 funniest Websites in the world," said Eric Bauman, founder of eBaum's World. "We do our best to identify the funniest and most viral media on the Web, and it's nice to have our efforts recognized by PC World."
According to the article (dated 9/16/07), "Bauman and his staff consistently find and post the funniest, grossest, weirdest, and most embarrassing videos on the Internet." One such example PC World highlights is a video "of a kid who eats a habanero pepper in one bite and then 'screams like a girl.'"
In August 2007, eBaum's entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by HandHeld Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:ZVUE) in a transaction slated to close in October 2007. After completing the acquisition, HandHeld will fold eBaum's into ZVUE Networks™ which will become one of the largest online video providers in the world. Post-acquisition ZVUE Networks is expected to deliver more than 24 million daily unique visitors per month and serve nearly 3.5 billion page views and video streams annually by the end of 2007. The eBaum's acquisition will further establish ZVUE Networks as one of the premier online video networks for advertisers wishing to reach the 18- to 34-year-old male demographic, typically one of the most sought after target audiences for advertisers.
