I was just glancing through some of the news in the Informationweek website where I found this awesome news about Google owning thousands of unrelated domain names.
Apart from the most popular Google products and the newly launched Google sites,Google never stops.They have buyed thousands of domains just 20 days ago which are not funny but even weird and suprises me that Google owned them!
According to the Pingdom ,Google buyed these domain names to protect their brand, and in some cases to prevent typosquatting or similar (false) practices.Just have a look at these domain names owned by Google!

Totally unrelated domains :
