.ibm, .cisco, .apple, .google, .sucks, .melbourne and many hundreds of others have been applied for and hundreds already delegated into the root.  '.hp' was deemed too short (must be at least 3 characters). 

See https://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus for the new TLD's and where they are up to (or http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/ for details about the program in general).

Wow.  I see the trend now -- .hp, .ibm, .cisco -- everyone will now have
www.company.  (Please, let's not.)

..then again, I'd claim .evil if I had a few billions.
