Fat Fingers is a website that searches online auctions for incorrect spellings . More than just internet enabled schadenfreude, discovering typos and misspellings is a way to find items with fewer or no bids. Taking advantage of other's sloppiness is as easy as typing your search into a field, which then directs you to a search of all the common mistakes on the website you've chosen from a pull-down menu. There's also an advanced search function and a downloadable widget for Ebayaholics.
