    When I put in www.com.com it came up with cnet.com does this happen for anyone else?

    yea CNET came up for me as well

    im not exactly sure why in the hell it did?

    maybe they purchased the url so when people mess up typing the url it will just forward you there.

    kind of a good idea IMO, well business wise that is

    The way I look at it is, the site for cnet news is news.com.com (I think it's supposed to mean that the "name" of the site is news.com (because it's tech-oriented), and then a .com is added at the end to make it into a domain name, i.e. news.com.com). Technically though, news is the subdomain, and com.com is the domain. Naturally, typing in com.com would take you to the same domain as news.com.com.

    I agree with buryyourbrideau in that it was a very good marketing tool. Just typing "com" into the safari address bar brings up c|net
