A sale of Chinese Internet domain names netted more than $160,000 on Friday in what organizers said was the biggest such auction yet in the computer-crazy country. A pair of sites named for ultra-mobile personal computing (umpc.cn and umpc.com.cn), one of the hottest technologies around, fetched an eye-popping 390,000 yuan ($49,000).

Generic domain names including art.com.cn and book.com.cn sold well above their reserve prices, while caipiao.com -- "caipiao" means lottery ticket in Chinese -- fetched 37,000 yuan. Stats for Chinese Domain Name Sells For $160,000 Trending: Older & Average
