There are four posts at Resource Shelf, chock full of domains registered by or transferred to Microsoft, that you might be interested in.
Post #1 contains such gems as Empowerforisvsenroll.com, extendersformediacenter.com (Microsoft just keeps buying Media Center Extender domains), healthvault-int.com (for the recently launched Health Vault), Directmusic.org, mom-live.com (because of Real Live Moms), secure-hotmail.com, windows-vista.net and windowsvista-forum.com.
The second post has so many domains, they’re on a seperate page. They include lots of “hyper-v”-related domains, whatever that is, including hyper-vclub, hyper-vdownload, hyper-vstore. I’m seeing a bunch of sites speculating as to what hyper-v is, and why Microsoft needed to buy up tens of domains containing the term. If you’ve got a clue, let me know. I’m anticipating Microsoft launching a new brand of some sort under the Hyper-V name.
The third post contains 3DMaptour.com (related to new Live Maps features), Cycle-on.org, Innovateonmobile.com (gotta compete with that iPhone), Antispymobile.com (could a mobile device antispyware tool be coming?) and Visualbasicsucks.com.
And, finally, the fourth post contains Findmediacenter.com, Federatedidentity.net, Journeyzune.org, Vboxlab.com and Msglobalexpo.com (Microsoft Expo? I’m in!).
