    LOL, If you go to BlackBerry10.com, it takes you to a Google 404 page. What does this mean!?!

    That you use Google as your default search engine?

    Clearly it means that Google is buying RIM.

    Useless thread.

    It doesn't mean anything. The domain is owned by someone in Saudi Arabia, likely purchased for their use in the future, or just to have. It happens a lot. When new devices or whatever are announced people (including RIM) buy up all the related domains just to have them, not necessarily for use.

    (Edit: deRusett beat me to it :P)

    Sometimes if the registrants have no legitimate right to the name because it is similar to a trademarked name, they will be made to sign it over to the rightful owner. I think there was such a case in regards to BlackBerry and a third party online shopping site.

    Never heard of something like that, where do you take that info from?

    The UDRP is used to handle domain/cyber- squatting. There are provisions in place to claim domain names somebody else registered in an attempt to extort money.
