Confused about top level domains

Hi

If i look on this page 'autos' is not a top level domain

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Internet_top-level_domains

but if i follow this link of that page autos is in the list: http://data.iana.org/TLD/tlds-alpha-by-domain.txt

Question 1: What is the difference between the 2 lists

Question 2: Lets says I wanted to get a domain with the top-level 'technology' how do i find a list of registrars entitled to sell this domain and the different domain sites seem to have different ones available

Thanks

The Wiki link is outdated - new TLD's are being added all the time.
Most registrars can sell all domains, the only restrictions are some country level domains and other restricted domains like .gov

ICANN is the authority on TLD's - please visit this site:
