    Yes, the same Playboy who launched the cable show named Wednesday and then told everyone to visit – and we own it. Glad to see they’re still on the cutting edge.

    I think .mobi is interesting because it really stands for mobile and mobiles are hotter than ever. Popular websites need a version of their site that displays well in mobile devices. There is script to let websites (like Facebook) detect you are connecting from a mobile device and then subsequently serve the mobile-friendly version of the site, but developing the mobile version on another domain like Playboy did is certainly another option. Developing on two different domains will let the user decide which version of the site they want, regular or mobile.

    I was in Qatar airport and had to wait seven hours for my connecting flight, GOOD GOD you have never seen so many mobile devices going at once.

    I can easily envision a marketing strategy for large companies that would include presence on .com, .TV, .info, .org, .us, .me and even .mobi as they expand their efforts. Each with unique content that is a natural fit for these extensions.

    Anunt, you whine about buying flowers often.
    I remember being in the room when Rick bought it from .mobi.

    I would suggest you appreciate your good fortune.
    It is worth a lot more than what you paid.

    I own 20+ killer .mobi that I haven’t don’t anything with.
    Maybe, Hugh will help bringing back .mobi.
