NICE QUOTE FROM ARTICLE:
"There has been a strong pent-up demand for URLs in different languages, as current generic top level domains all use the Roman alphabet, meaning irritating keyboard-switching for those who speak a different tongue."


Still seems that most large ASCII holders and developers don't think native language domains are worth a piss.

"Strong pent-up demand" - wasn't that my phrase from last week? Is the writer a member here?

Re: ICANN'T believe it's not Apple: Vatican wins domain-handout lottery

Just sloppy journalism. At least two errors in this sentence alone:

"The bulk of the first 100 new top level domains to be considered are in non-English characters - Chinese, Russian, Japanese, Korean, Arabic."

Unless Apple has now patented the Latin alphabet and designated for English only. I believe the term English was redesignated some years ago.
