itunes com misspelled domains
Sloppy typists should have an easier time reaching Apple's iTunes pages now, as the company this week acquired a batch of at least 16 domain names representing misspelled variants of the company's itunes.com domain. The newly-transfered domains include:

irtunes.com, itiunes.com, itrunes.com, itubnes.com, itumnes.com, itunbes.com, ituneas.com, ituneds.com, itunesa.com, itunesl.com, itunres.com, itunwes.com, ituynes.com, iutunes.com, iytunes.com, oitunes.com

All of the domains had been registered in December 2004, and Apple acquired them from Acebo Enterprises, Inc. The domains currently redirect to Apple's main iTunes page.

All 16 of the misspellings relate to "fat finger" errors, with each containing an extra letter appearing somewhere in the URL and those extra letters falling adjacent to a neighboring correct letter on the keyboard.

I'm sorry, but this is terrible news, especially for front page.

good thing it's not on the front page then. :)

I wish more companies did this... I know it's the user's fault but it's annoying to have to fix the url for just one letter! :p Good job on Apple's part.

PS: Not related but consider this idea: people that post "Slow news day" should be banned immediately after posting such words.

oitunes.com sounds like a sweet indie music distribution website for punk bands. and now Apple stole their hipster potential.

That's BS, I think the guy reserving the domain names was a bit drunk and couldn't spell it right the first 16 times. :D

Yes, as a shareholder I'm very interested in that. Clearly this is just a domain name squatter troll company. Nice idea if the price isn't that high, but if they paid millions for these I'd rather see that money used elsewhere.

"As a shareholder..."

Probably the most annoying aside comment used in these forums. As though someone having their 4, or 20, or 50 shares, suddenly makes them an authority point for how a business should conduct themselves.
