Will WordPress Acquire and Use Word.Press?
.Press is open for landrush registration as of today, August 26th.  It will be interesting to see who turns up as the owner of Word.Press, provided the name is not being held back by the registry.

2012.com Finally Changes Hands
Back in 2010, I covered the domain 2012.com, which had been sitting idly for years without resolving.  The owner had been adamant that, “this domain is not for sale. Please do not call.

Why Do You Bid So Early On Go Daddy Expired Domain Auctions?
