Updated November 30, 2011 at 5:39am EST: Google has now apparently acquired the domain name GoogleSpot.com through MarkMonitor. According to WHOIS records, the name switched hands on November 28. While MarkMonitor is listed as the registrant, Google regularly uses the brand protection service to secure domains.
Looks like Google may have some sort of plan for its own programming language called ‘Spot’.
The search engine giant has filed a trademark application for ‘Spot’ according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
The filing (Serial Number: 85403946) took place on August 22, 2011 and covers computer programs and downloadable computer programs that implement an object-oriented computer programming language.
At the same time Google was filing the trademark, it registered several domain names.
