New Top Level Domains Open Up and Other News

Break open the piggy banks.

Welcome to this morning's edition of "First To Know," a series in which we keep you in the know on what's happening in the digital world.

Today, we're looking at three particularly interesting stories. If you missed that coveted .com address you were after, rest easy — some new domains are opening up. Donuts, a domain name registry, is slowly opening up access to .bike, .singles, .clothing and more. 9to5Mac has some interesting new details about that sapphire plant Apple’s been working on.

I don't see these tlds having much value for at least a few more years. I might consider buying a good one for a good price, then sitting on it, but people are still too accustomed to .com - I've had a few .net domains and dealt with the frustrations of getting people to not go to the .com site.

I'll leave these type of domains to others to purchase as just don't like the extensions. They'd be really hard for me to remember even if they were my own domains as I'm accustomed to the .com .net and .org domains.

Noooooooooo. I don't want to break my poor piggy. xd

I don't have one and even if I did. There wouldn't be any money in it as my money is all gone before I can save any. "Hopefully that'll change soon though".
