Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

news.com.com?


News.com now has internal links that point to "news.com.com". It started a few weeks ago. I keep wondering why did they make that change. Going to www.com.com, I found that this is the home page for all of CNET's properties.

com.com??

The name sounds cool, but you think about it a bit and it feels like one of those names that are only thought to bring readers, something a multi-level marketing company would come up with in '99. The domain com.com has been owned by CNET since 2001, according to whois. Why did they make the change now? How is the marketing idiot that thought "com.com" was a good name? The mysteries of the post-bubble Internet.
