I read somewhere a while ago that OpenDNS makes somewhere in the region of
$20k a day in advertising from people typing in the wrong URL and them
serving search results.

DNS is a fair enough service to offer up for free as there's definitely
demand. It will just increase their revenue and push their search engine
market share even further. Quite why they haven't done this sooner I don't
