Thoughts on a few Japanese .biz?

Any thoughts?
I'm not sure how .biz will fly in Japan but thought I'd pick up a few just in case.
All were registered at launch, no -pre-orders and it would be interesting to see if any of the following were pre-ordered by any of you.

Re: Thoughts on a few Japanese .biz?

I pre-ordered credit card, I thought I pre-ordered golf, but after checking my notes I don't think i did. Not to big on the dynadot pre-order. Of course I didn't expect to get the the first five (way to go wot) I pre ordered.

You have some nice ones, lets hope .biz takes off. credit card is my favorite.

Re: Thoughts on a few Japanese .biz?

I way just thinking. Even though .biz sucks because the extenstion just sounds crappy, I guess if they manage to get a decent japanese character/phrase to DNAME it to, it could really ROCK for Japanese

Re: Thoughts on a few Japanese .biz?

I preordered these three:
自動車 -- Automobile
アダルト -- Adult
クレジットカード -- Credit Card
I like them a lot.

A side note: What is going on with Dynadot? They got my preorder credit but did not do the job for me.

Re: Thoughts on a few Japanese .biz?

.inc sounds a lot better than .biz

.corp

.biz - to me- just sounds cheap.
