This is the home of domains. There are only 100,000 total domains, and the vast majority have already been registered as of today. Given that there are fewer domains than domains (100,000 v. 456,967), which have been all registered and are now trading for minimum values of $60-80 for letters that don't have any meaning, it is only a matter of time before all of the domains are gone as well.

In numeric news today, google announced that it is offering local news content for people that type in zip codes into google news search. This is good for numerics, as people will get more used to typing in zip code numbers to receive relevant content, and will possibly be extended to foreign postal codes as well for international-based google searches.
