Fusible, always keeping a close eye on domain name registrations and ownership changes, has noticed that Google has taken over the domain name Schemer.com. Interestingly, that URL already leads to a Google service login page, although you’ll hit a dead end when you log on.
There’s more to the story. According to Fusible, the former owner of the domain name was Meevine, a developer of mobile applications (which still owns getschemer.com by the way).
Update: I’m not seeing this in the WHOIS history. Instead, it shows the previous owner of the domain name as E Bour from the company Marathon Oil for me. Either way, it was taken over by Google a few months ago.
I hope they checked Urban Dictionary first.
I’ve asked both Meevine and Google for comment but haven’t heard back yet.
Update: Watts says: “I know about as much as you know at this point.”
