Quick, give me a word
Randy A. Salas
(MCT) Have you ever wondered what Web sites might come up if you typed in random words between the "www." and the ".com" in your Web browser's address bar? Let's see.
These seemed like good places to start. Unfortunately, these sites don't exist. But if you enter www.aa.com, you get American Airlines' site. And if you type in www.11.com, you get the corporate parent of Eleven Technology. So it's double or nothing.
Here's a fitting trio of URLs for the week before the Super Bowl. Unilever owns www.eat.com, a promotional Web site that is pushing Ragu products these days. There are even Tips for Eating Fun, in case you're not sure how to approach that plate of spaghetti topped with yummy Ragu sauce. For example, the site says, "Rename a Dish - as you pass around the food, challenge each person in your family to rename a favorite dish-you'll all remember the funniest names, and laughter is great exercise!" Hey, anyone for a dish of Randy-O's? I can hear the laughter already. Good times. Drink.com is run by Netincome Ventures Inc. - one of those faux directory/search pages you typically get when you mistype a URL. I can't believe some huge beverage company such as Coca-Cola or Kool-Aid let that domain name slip by. It's the same story for BeMerry.com, owned by MDNH Inc. There goes a golden opportunity for, say, Hallmark greeting cards or an Irish pub.
Right about now, you might be thinking this is a lame idea for a column. If so, this would be the site for you - yet another fake directory page, this one run by Anything.com. "Check out our links for the most up to date Lame information and much more!" It really says that.
Could there be a more fitting way to close today's round-up than with two things that occur last? Z.com is a rather clever domain name that redirects the curious to Nissan's spiffy site for its 350Z sports car. The coupe starts at $27,900 - although, using the Build Your Z tool, I quickly got that puppy up to $31,825 (and that didn't even include the $530 Aerodynamics Package). TheEnd.com publicizes "The End," by Dr. George Madray, a Georgia dentist whose book explains the "who, what, where, when, why and how" of biblical prophecy about, well, the End. Seeing as the site's forum has only five registered users, including one named drgeorge, not too many people seem concerned about Judgment Day. What a bad start for "The End."
