    Don't know why I didn't notice this sooner, but Google is squatting on the domain of fallen competitor cuil.com

    Domain Name: cuil.com
    Registrar Registration Expiration Date: 2017-12-30T06:38:21-0800
    Registrant Organization: Google Inc.

    Maybe Matt Cutts is planning to use it on his personal blog.

    They're not squatting it.

    After Cuil failed Google bought up their intellectual property. The person who started it was an ex Google employee and went back to work for Google.
