All the premiums are owned by the mobi company

Which premiums do you own? Did you see their list? They have a 40 page reserved list.

Which premium .mobi do you own? Just wondering as you have considered .bj.cn extensions premium in the past ;-)... IMO everyone has their own opinions.

And I still own Hotels.bj.cn

Some superb .co.in/ .in , quite a lot of ascii.com , some .tv etc , and I sell quite a lot , relatively - $7K in the last two weeks.

Premium .mobi , depends on your opinion as I said - amongst others - NorthKorea.mobi - meet with your approval ?

Re: I see .mobi "failed" again!

Wot's a smart guy, he already earned $xxx,xxx from flipping non-prime names in 4 years, this is a feat, and proves that timing is more important factor than portfolio management.

People usually don't brag about how much they're making.. They just keep their mouths shut and keep churning the money.

I've made tons of $ as well but I don't go about bragging.

Well, that's beside the point, the point is this proves that timing is more important factor than domain quality, at least in the short to medium term.

If you get the timing right, even junk can make good money.

I learnt this the hard way with my early ASCII purchases from flippers, all lost money from exchange rate loss and value depreciation.

But if i bought LN, NL, or LLL junk then, i might break even or even made money. What matters is the trend (timing), and not the quality of the names.

Domaining is about catching the trend...

Re: I see .mobi "failed" again!

Last week was a very bad week for Dot Mobi. The news that Mozilla is going to produce Firefox on Symbian should prove the death knell.

The bottom line is running parallel website is going to create huge difficulties in terms of synchronising the databases that underpin major online businesses. Having a mobile browser that will support their existing websites in a mobile environment will remove any motivation to address the issues of database synchronisation and brand dilution.

Really have little or no sympathy for those that are putting the cash on the line without doing the research. It would seem some of them need to learn to read.

As I knew you would knock whatever I said I just thought I would stir the pot for you a little.

Aw! Go on tell us what you make, I love to hear success stories.

And RD ,I really could not care less whether or not they . mobi , are this or that - I am in this business solely to make money - which I thought we all were- I will turn a profit anywhere I can

Yes, he has done well, but this really is small beer and actually less than I have made on IDN to date.

You have done very well also.

But for Wot, he resides in ChiangMai, where the cost of living is low, so the money he earned is substantial.

My wife is HK Chinese and has been selected to represent China in the upcoming Olympics - they think she is nailed on for the gold in shopping. :p

Hence, there is never enough money, and don't forget, I am a poor old retiree, life is just not easy.
