GDrive domain transferred to Google

As you know, I like watching Google domain names.  Over the last couple days, Google has been the recipient of some interesting domain transfers.

As you know, I like watching Google domain names.  Over the last couple days, Google has been the recipient of some interesting domain transfers.  Remember GDrive?  It is software currently being used by Googlers under the codename Platypus -- giving them online storage for their files.

GDrive.us was transferred to Google on Thursday -- I don't understand why they are snapping up so many of these domains unless it will be available to the public eventually.  They currently own Gdrive.com/org/biz/us/ca/co.uk/eu/de/jp and probably more.

Another interesting transfer on Wednesday was GoogleDashboard.com -- it was previously registered to someone in New York.  The only thing I can imagine this domain representing is Google ramping up development for Apple's Dashboard on OSX -- they already have a few dashboard widgets, maybe we will see more soon?
