A $4bn biz without a live product just broke the record for the amount paid for a domain name. WTF is going on?

When I tell people about a product I say "it's available on Amazon". They google Amazon "whatever product" and click a link. Nobody ever types Amazon.com into the address bar and then searches for the product.

I saw someone the other day open IE (which had Bing as its home page) enter "Google" in the Bing search box, then in the Google search box enter the full domain name of the site they wanted.
