A is for Amazon – Google sells the alphabet

Those google predictions while you type are often frighteningly prescient but what happens when they’ve only got the first letter to go on? Well, it seems to me that rather than returning the most frequent queries (B is for Britney, P is for porn, etc.) they have sold most of the alphabet to US corporations.

A is for Amazon
B is for Best Buy
C is for Craigslist
D is for Dictionary
E is for Ebay
F is for Facebook
G is for Gmail
H is for Hotmail
I is for imdb
J is for Jet Blue
K is for Kohls
L is for Lowes
M is for MapQuest
N is for Netflix
O is for Old Navy
P is for Pandora
Q is for quotes
R is for Realtor.com
S is for Soutwest Airlines
T is for Target
U is for USPS
V is for Verizon Wireless
W is for Walmart
X is for XM Radio
Y is for youtube
Z is for Zillow

They don’t seem to have sold all the integers yet.

1 is 1800flowers
2 is 2009 calendar
3 is 3oh 3
4 is 4chan
5 is 500 days of summer
6 is 60 minutes
7 is 7zip
