Comment About the hindi .com application... (Score 1) 69

I checked and it was applied by VeriSign from Switzerland. And they say, and I quote, in their application "We anticipate that the availability of the DEVANAGARI_TRANSLITERATION_OF_.COM will greatly increase the appeal and value of internationalized addresses in India. Expanding the accessibility and functionality of these domain names to users worldwide is the primary benefit of all internationalized transliterations of .com." I am ROFL, at their lack of how Indians think and work. This falls along the line of the one guys iPhone app, in app store. He does have other regional clock apps also. These people have no clue about the life styles and choices of the people in those regions. Only Indians know why a tamil/hindi/sanskrit clock will never sell and why an hindi .com transliterated domain name will never fly. I will keep checking if any one ever gets a hindi .com and if any of the big names like suleka, sify and others ever care.
