Google revealed that it paid Sanmay Ved, a researcher who was able to buy and own google.com for one minute on Google Domains, $12,0012.26.
Zuma maths? :confused:

It's just you - for everyone else it's the comma being used as the delimiter between the hundreds and the thousands that's messed up. :p
Should be $120,012.26. surely?

If they'd done the math right it would have been $12,012.26.

They were obviously attempting to be as inaccurate as possible. :eek:

How did this even happen?
Original Guardian article says: "It is unclear what happened to allow Ved to purchase the site. It could have been a bug in Google Domains or the company simply failed to renew its domain name when the time came."
