The .HOW new gTLD

Google is offering the .HOW new gTLD. According to the number of results indexed - 1,180,000 from where I am and the 2,495 domains registered - there is something going on.

Have a look here for indexed URLs ending in ".how".

Here is what the .HOW new gTLD applications says:
The proposed gTLD will provide the marketplace with direct association to the term, ʺhow.ʺ The mission of this gTLD, .how, is to provide a dedicated domain space in which registrants can enact second-level domains that position content relating to ʺin what manner or wayʺ one executes a task, as in ʺhow to do ʹsomething.ʹʺ Charleston Road Registry believes that registrants will find value in associating with this gTLD, which could have a vast array of purposes for enterprises, small businesses, groups or individuals seeking to associate with the term ʺhowʺ.
