Conventional Internet abbreviations such as '.com' and '.net' are being replaced by specific ones. So, according to reports, Microsoft has now allegedly invested $2.035 million in securing domain names such as '.windows' '.xbox' '.bing' and '.skype'. Sony's put down $555k in an effort to grab names like ".sony" and ".xperia". ICANN is asking at least $185,000 just to place a bid on a specific URL.
Meanwhile, the ICANN is taking its time with evaluations, up to 20 months, which is probably when the first examples of these new-fangled URLs are going to emerge.
Yeah, I'm gonna start bidding for ".easymoney" right now.
