    .ME thinks “SnapChat” should have taken that $4 Billion offered by FB. David may have killed Goliath with a slingshot; but in this case, Goliath (FB) may kill David (Snapchat) w/its own “Slingshot”

    Silicon Valley and Silicon Beach Companies have been buying lots of .Me names, as well as.Co. Several are under “privacy” It’s about personalization and mobile. Also the Korean media conglomerate launched Interest.me last year, which is popular with the youth market. And in “Silicon Alle” (Berlin), some entrepreneurs launched Trip.me this year. It’s already quite popular – and recently was voted “Best Digital Startup” in Europe.

    LogMeIn.com started using LogMe.in for some kind of promotions and production software a year back or so. I was advised countless calls just like mine came in asking if it was phishing – it was not.
    I think they have limited its use of removed it altogether – I don’t need it that it all I know

    So there you go SlingMe.com
