Garett Rogers is at it again and this time he realized that Google added a CNAME record for checkout.google.com which would correspond to GBuy. He found that the record points to checkout.l.google.com which has many different IP addresses associated with it. The multiple IP addresses will help Google balance the load that the servers will be receiving from the traffic.
He found this to be important because Google added a CNAME record to picasaweb.google.com the same day that Google released Picasa Web Albums. We still don’t know exactly how far away Google Checkout (also known as GBuy) is from being released but this is definitely a big step.
