Domain name typographical errors can happen just about any place but when it's in print, the fix isn't a backspace and quick correction away. This becomes a long time error that won't just go away.

Here is an interesting question but one I think is pretty easily answered. As an owner of a company, should you use an exact match "Product Name" as the domain name on your product or should you use your "Company Name" domain name on the product? A 50/50 situation in most cases but I personally
