The creators of coupon site DealLocker.com have launched a new site called Typo Buddy. Buyers can look for misspellings on eBay and Craigslist that may otherwise go unnoticed by other shoppers, decreasing the competition for the items. For example, typing "Espresso Maker" into Typo Buddy would find commonly misspelled derivatives (such as "Expresso Maker"). For more fine-tuned search results, consumers can use the Advanced search function that allows for excluding specific words.
