    Anyways, I thought that was kind of interesting. I'm sure other people have noticed it before. Could this be something new google is planning, or just an extra domain they registered?

    Seems like just an extra domain they registered since they also have google3.com registered also.

    It's a usual occurance for major firms or companies to purchase domains with similar names to their own name to avoid other parties misusing their names or cybersquatting on it.

    Recently, a Malaysian blogger who had a blog over at http://visa.com.my was forced to transfer ownership of the domain to Visa without any compensation or reimbursement... >_<

    Looks like he's back and blogging, good for him:

    Last week I sent my guys to wallop the lawyers of visa, and they admitted that it's their fault, and they have also agreed to give me back the domain and I can do whatever I want. In addition, they will compensate me for my loss and damages with a limitless platinum card and I can enjoy the interest rate of 0% for life! And of course that's a card with annual fee waived for life!

    Yeah, I wished. Things like that won't happen even in dreams.

    But hey, I'm back to work! Well, back to blogging, that is, and this is for real!

    While I'm transferring the domain to them, this is blewtooth reporting to you that I'm still alive, and I've started blogging with a different domain name. Remember start.com.my, the community yellow pages web site that anyone can edit? Yeah, I've setup my new home there.

    To my fellow friends and readers, kindly please update your bookmarks, blewtooth is now blogging at his new home.
