Be interested to hear more on this over the next two months.

Thanks & cheers - Asiaplay

PS: my guess is it also means they will be ignoring .nets, .biz etc. as well...
Aren't they a Chinese search engine though? It will be interesting to watch their strategy to win the Japanese over but my guess is that they will struggle. Especially if they ignore .com/.net - even though my .jp portfolio side giggles with delight.
