Previously i blogged about Google's fight for 32 different domain names witch closely reminds Google.com. Today there is still about 400 typo domains out there, 53 now belongs to Google Inc. Those 53 redirects you to Google.com. Many of them links to landing pages and parking sites, some even to fully functional commercial sites. Others are registered but non operational.
