    Microsoft have applied for 11 gTLDs, including:
    .microsoft
    .office
    .windows
    .live

    Apple just want .apple

    Interestingly ".google" has been requested by a "Charlseton Road Registry Inc." - Is this Google in disquise or someone hoping to pip them to the post?

    Lots being bought by people like "Top Level Domain Holdings" - a lot of very expensive squatting may be going on here...!
