Forty Media have put together a fantastic list of over 1,000 unregistered English verb domain names.

According to “The Endangered Cookie“, proposed new legislation could make the common (and generally very useful) cookie extinct:
In trying to kill spyware, the authors drafted a bill with language that questions the legality of using any code to capture and store user information, including most first- and third-party cookies employed in online advertising.

Definitaly worth keeping an eye on.
