iSudoku IDNs

Recently I stumbled upon a Sudoku website that has interesting and clever Chinese IDNs.

Simplified Chinese http://爱数独.中国/
Traditional Chinese http://愛數獨.中國/

Both 爱数独 and 愛數獨 mean Love(s) Sudoku. The website concerns an App called iSudoku. Now to the clever part. 数独 and 數獨 mean Sudoku. 爱 and 愛 mean love. The romanization of 爱 and 愛 in both Chinese and Japanese is ai. The pronunciation of ai in both Chinese and Japanese is i. Thus iSudoku becomes 爱数独 or 愛數獨.

But what of the Japanese form of Love(s) Sudoku? In Japanese Kanji this would 愛数独. Well Huáng Jīng (黄晶) has already thought of this. http://愛数独.中国/ redirects to the Simplified Chinese address 爱数独.中国. I am totally impressed.

This adds a whole new dimension to the i prefix used by Apple. iPhone becomes Love Phone, iPad becomes Love Pad, iPod becomes Love Pod and iWork becomes Love Work ...etc...

Re: iSudoku IDNs

Well done, except that Sodoku is a trademark.
