I didn't see this one coming:

'.Apple,' '.auto' among Internet suffixes proposed - Yahoo! Finance

'.Apple,' '.pizza' among Internet suffixes proposed in major address expansion

Proposals for Internet addresses ending in ".pizza," ''.space" and ".auto" are among the nearly 2,000 submitted as part of the largest expansion in the online address system.

Apple Inc., Sony Corp. and American Express Co. are among companies that are seeking names with their brands.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers announced the proposals for Internet suffixes, the ".com" part of an Internet address, in London on Wednesday. There were 1,930 proposals for 1,409 different suffixes. The bulk came from North America and Europe.

At least we can all say "I remember when the internets was simple".

Not a fan of the new suffixes. At all.

I fail to see what advantage they bring, any more than prefixes (or whateverifixes). Does anyone give a shit about the Go network? (Remember, it's not espn.com, it's espn.go.com)

Yeah it's a pretty bad move. Is ICANN really that desperate?

I guess porn sites can get .cum.

It's $185000 just to apply. I see it as Apple trying to protect its name, so they registered it before someone else did.

I guess .mac wasn't inclusive enough.
