    Is this the new ".mobi button"?

    How about the law of domain averages where nothing new succeeds?

    Must be depressing being an industry where you know nothing new you do will ever succeed.

    The "success" part for new tlds will be selling them to domainers, rather than domainers doing well from buy them. That is how it has always been in the past.

    I haven't done that well with 'new extensions' in the past. Made a few sales but nothing to set the world on fire.

    I didn't buy a lot of these domains, so my exposure was limited.

    I think in the future I would buy even less and be far more discerning.

    I'll probably only bother with 3 or so of the new extensions, and only a few domains in each.
