Just a brief list of same names we're bidding on or have interest in:
adaptiveoptics.com - This term has gained ground in recent years especially with flexible LEDs and groundbreaking solar systems. Worth a bid or two.
chunker.com - Not a word but a good brandable with 12 years on its back.
finit.com - Great brandable for anything from tech services to web 2.0 site.

One of the auctions on watch today, CelebritySpy.com, went for $425 at GoDaddy. The end number of bids was 27 with 87 hits on the bid page.
Over 20 domains have Celebrity and Spy in their name, and Google serp returns 7 million results without quotes.
For two great generic terms put together, this one was a steal. Congratulations to the buyer!
Tonight's interesting opportunities on NJ. Note that all domains are 10+ years old continuous registration unless otherwise noted.
- TheCatDoctor.com - Normally I would pass on The<Noun><Noun>, but anything that even sounds related to pets has great resell value. Jumping in on this one to see if the final price is reasonable. 13+ years.
- CWT.org - Any 3 letter domain is worth a shot - but don't overpay in day 4 bidding. 12 year Registration.
- FragranceLamp.com - 2000 Monthly searches with $3 bid is enough to arouse everyone. Plenty of bidders already so it's certain to go for a bundle.
- UltimateCars.com - With great terms like Ultimate Fighting, Ultimate Frisbee, and an image search for "ultimate" showing results for Ferraris and Porches, I think we have a winner.
Name Snipes: These domains do not have any bids at the time of this posting and are worth a snipe:
- eRaceway.com - This one has no bids yet, so easy to snipe. eNames on NJ typically get noticed and bid up fast, so keep your eyes peeled.
- AdvisoryOne.com - Recent Namejet auctions ending in One have proven to have enough bidders to bring price ranges higher. Watch n this one if you can get it cheap.
NameMon Duds: These names are not as sweet as they seem:
- thefrontrow.com - Has been on the selling board for the past two years with no bidders.

Here are the GoDaddy pre-release names we are trying to grab today:
PictureMate.com - Perfect blend of "photo" and "friend" synonyms, and 10 years old continuous.
iMortgage.net - TM for this term on the .com is for residential loans, so this .net can still be marketed for commerical loans
GoLogos.com - Logo creation services keep growing in popularity, so this one looks like an instant hit
Compulsive.org - Only $80 at this point but might cost more towards the end of the auction. Nice name for non-profit or website about compulsive disorders.
Here are some names that some find interesting but we'll pass:
ActGreenBlog.com - Some traffic and alexa rank, but the current price of $255 with 4 hours to go is surely a wasted place to input energy. Not a terrible domain but not incredible either.
BluWaterResort.com - Already at $109? Granted, it is easier to grab BluWater than BlueWater, but if you aren't the end user this may prove difficult to resell.

After a few conversations back and forth on the Wikipedia discussion page for Nissan Motor, I was able to verify all claims made by Uzi Nissan by getting into the PACER system at uscourts.gov. Once I got all the evidence required, I added the references to the discussion page as well as the article, adding clarity and cause for the entry. You can now see the completed entry at Nissan v Nissan. This article addresses the important case of NISSAN.COM which was first heard on December 1999 and found in favor of Nissan Motors. Uzi Nissan's appeal granted him in 2004 some rights and by 2008 he had essentially overturned all rulings, and been awarded $50,000 for his court defense costs.
It is very important for domainers everywhere to contribute real resources to public content and make sure their marks and claims are heard. We are being harassed and abused daily, and not everyone is going to win (although 10 years in court will make you rethink your priorities).
A copy of the court document proving this can only be found by creating a US COURTS PACER Account. For Wikipedia users I have added the final judgement for necessary documentation.
