This weekend big tech buzz has been about an Apple smart watch.
If Apple is going ahead with the product is most likely going to be called an iWatch.
Anything.com which owns one of the best domain name portfolios in the world, happens to own iWatch.com as well.
Actually Anything.com is the original registrant of this domain name back in 1998, which was three years before Apple even came out with its first “i” product, the iPod which came out in 2001.
As for the domain name smartwatch.com it is controlled by brand protection company MarkMonitor.com is currently forwarding to WIMM and has a registration date of 2000.
Here is what is posted in WIMM’s site:
“Almost three years ago WIMM set out to make information more personal, accessible, and connected. The WIMM One proved the concept and inspired many to take a fresh look at wearable technology.
During the summer of 2012, WIMM Labs entered into an exclusive, confidential relationship for our technology and ceased sales of the Developer Preview Kit.”
“We’d like to thank all of our developers for their interest and willingness to experiment with our platform and look forward to exciting advances in the wearable market”.
The domain name smartwatches.com is owned by Smart Jewelers of Northbrook, IL and has a registration date of 1999.
In any event if Apple moves ahead with the watch, it looks like a big payday and/or a ton of traffic coming to our friends at Anything.com
