Wow!!!! Check it out. Try typing airtel in the address bar in IE or FireFox and hit ctrl+enter. And viola!!! What do you see? The homepage of Vodaphone!!!!


Looks like Vodafone bought a company in Spain called Airtel, and originally belonged to that Spanish company. Anyway, its amusing!!!

For those who didnt understand what this is about. Airtel and Vodaphone are two key competitors in Telecom in India. Now when you type, the visitor gets redirected to vodaphone’s web page!!!!

Talk about patenting and trademarking!!!! Talk about blunders!!!!
