Google Buys Google.com Back From The Guy Who Bought It For $12

This is Sanmay Ved, you may remember him from that time he bought the Google.com domain for $12.


Quote:Of course it wasn’t to last as Google realised their mistake after about a minute. He said that, as he used to work there, he was constantly checking the site to see what was going on. It was when the site said that the domain was available to buy that he added it to his cart.

“The domain actually got added to my cart as seen by the green check-box, and the domain appeared in my cart,

I was hoping I would get an error at sometime, saying transaction did not go through, but I was able to complete the purchase, and my credit card was actually charged!”

The scary part was I had access to the webmaster controls for a minute.”
