I believe they are talking about single letter top-level domains. I.e., http://www.nedbatchelde.r

Nope, they're talking about a.com, b.net, etc.

As Jay Leno said last night... it'll be a welcome relief to all of 26 companies. Whoopteefrickindoo.

I worked at a startup when the 7 top-level domains were created. We got ci.com for Cognition Incorporated (see here). The company still exists but I think the domain was more valuable than their net worth so they sold it off. Too bad we didn't think ahead and grab all of these other silly names while we were at it.

The really short domain names might be useful for an app targeted at mobile phone users.
