Googol. Although by force of habit I spelled it as Google just now since I probably type that word about 10000 times as often as I type the other one.

Googol.

Larry and Sergey misspelled it, but already registered google.com and didn't want to have to pay to register a new domain name.

Great answer Mark.


It's not Google.

I really like KauaiMark's answer. However, I think the word is googol although I could be wrong on the spelling. The only reason that useless bit of information sticks in my mind is because I was reading about Google one day and read that the name was derived from a number with one hundred zeros.

I like that answer ... although I think the "stimulus" is actually larger.

A googol, perchance?

Isn't it a googleplex or something like that?
