things that make you go hmmm

I discovered recently that my web browser (Firefox) lets me search Google and Dictionary.com in one convenient little text-input box!

In only tangentially related news, how is it that "Google" doesn't get referred to as "Google.com" like everyone else on the web seems to? Yahoo, Amazon, Slashdot, and eBay sneak by, too. I wonder what the magic status is?

Maybe words that can't be confused in normal conversation with other common understandings?


Well, you could argue that "yahoo" ought to be able to be used in normal conversation...

Though with "Amazon" the context should be enough to distinguish the various meanings.
