.US domains are a great way to give your website an American identity, whether it's to foster a sense of patriotism or just let people know that you've got a presence in the United States. And if you want to get creative, you can also use the .US extension to form a question/statement or finish the spelling of a word.
ImageShack is a simple–and hugely popular–image hosting service. Its use of the .US extension isn't necessarily for branding purposes; it's simply a relevant, memorable domain name that has undoubtedly contributed to ImageShack's success. There's great availability for .US domains compared to many of the popular generic extensions, so finding a keyword-rich domain name is much easier.
