Imagine if he had put this money into IDNs

Imagine if he had put this money into IDNs...
I guess that many IDN detractors would still laugh and say "I pity the fool that puts money into IDNs".

Reality is, I see is more and more is people bailing on .mobi, but only a very small percentage dropping their IDNs.
Quietly, many are acquiring and new names are popping into the who.is every day. Even smart thinkers like FS don't
see much of a play in the mobi area for the future.

At any rate, this is a pretty big list here...449 + mobi's. Hope he is lucky enough to recoup from the dwindling few that
see a bright mobi future. Here is a plug for the sale for those that speculate in that segment.

Lots of privacy whois today. People willing to pay $1 a year more for whois, they got something to hide.

Having lots of sites under whois privacy screws your google rankings. Cutts said that they specifically look for this - and even when you have whois privacy, they know how to group owners to domains... There is no escaping the eye of the almighty google, it's like Sauron.

They are hiding because their very name in it will cause IDN values to rocket.

You should use linux instead, no need to ctl-c and ctl-v.

To copy a word, you double click a text. To copy an entire line, you click three times. To paste, you click the middle mouse button. Bloody brilliant.

But on hindsight, we all benefited from dot mobi, and dot eu, they distracted mainstream domainers, buying us precious time to reg more names.

If microshaft had half a clue, they'd implement the same functionality.

Why invest in innovation when you can use your monopoly position and armies of lawyers to screw everyone into the deck?

By the US economy has a long way to plunge!

Probably just using the RS definition, which basically seems to mean you have a real word thrown in there somewhere!

Re: Imagine if he had put this money into IDNs

It used to be great in Mac too. If you double clicked a domain name, it highlighted the entire domain, so you could do what you wanted with it, including dragging to another window.

Then some standard for what consisted a "word ending" changed, and Apple decided to confirm to it and now a domain name is considered more than one word, so the much more involved "click at start of domain and drag to end" is needed. I might sue Apple for RSI damage.
