Also, if your company is called Powergen, and you have an Italian branch, the correct domain name to use is: http://www.powergenitalia.com/

It's a nice story, but apparently not true.
http://www.snopes.com/business/names/powergen.asp debunks it in their usual style, as does http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/28/31273.html in theirs. Pity.
Nevertheless, an Italian company does host their site at http://www.powergenitalia.com - but it's a genuine Italian company and not the Italian sub of a British company that should know better.

It's called Component. They added it during the last code update. It is spiffy :)
