GTLD’s NEW ERA IN 2012

The following story is apart of the Mac dilemma as we know it today.  Topping tech headlines on Wednesday, the Internet’s governing body unveiled a list of 1,930 applied-for generic top-level domain (gTLD) names that executives said will usher in a “new era” of the Web. On the list were applications from top tech firms like Google, Samsung, Amazon, Microsoft, and Apple. Udoubtedly, GTLD’s are the wave of the future and surprisingly it does not look like Mac is vying for .MAC.

On the tech front, Apple only applied for .apple – no .iphone or .ipad on the list. Samsung also sought to secure the rights to its name with two applications; one for .samsung and another for its name in Korean characters. Google applied for dozens of domains under the name Charleston Road Registry. For more, see: Your Domain Here: Popular New gTLDs from ICANN.

Meanwhile, the teardown gang at iFixit unfastened, decoupled, and proprietary-pentalobe-screwed off Apple’s new 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display in record time. What they found was a machine that’s got some stellar technology but isn’t particularly easy to upgrade or repair.

More bad news: If you want one of Apple’s next-generation MacBook Pros with a high-resolution Retina display, you’re going to have to wait a few more weeks. Just days after taking the wraps off its new $2,200 laptop, Apple has run out of supplies. Just what is a GTLD? Simple: Generic Top Level Domain.  Rightfully so when you get the drift of how important the GTLD’s are to the internet you will surely understand the  hype.  There have been millions of dollars invested thus far.
