    Hi Guys,

    Just curious to what your BEST domain is? It might because it returns you the most money or because it has the most EXACT searches etc, for whatever reasons you think it's your BEST.

    I would now probably have to say mine is LearnersTest.com.au

    What's yours?

    DVDs.com.au i'd say is mine.

    There was quite some drama back when I hand registered it. The last registrant forgot to renew and sent a lot of threats etc trying to make me transfer it back to them.

    It's my best because of how generic it is really.

    Good thread Shaun.

    I bought commission.com.au from Netfleet last year.

    I haven't developed it yet and it doesn't have that many exact searches per month. But I like that it's a good one word domain that will hopefully carry some value into the future from the site and from the domain.

    And I have some others which might not ever sell for thousands of dollars, but when you pick them up for $20.95 you feel it's a good deal knowing that they will generate a lot more money for you than that.

    Hey djuqa, do you host all your minisites on the same account, or spread the love?

    Tens of millions of connected portable "tablet" devices are predicted to fly off the shelves this year, according to industry tracker Deloitte.

    The year of the tablet PC has finally arrived after a decade-long push from Microsoft. The device, which is much smaller than a notebook, but bigger than a phone, is being dubbed 'net tablet' or 'netTabs.'

    What's so special about them? They're expected to be priced between $400 - $800, weigh less than 500g and measure about 8-inches x 5-inches. NetTabs could also inherit features such as Wi-Fi and mobile network access, full colour touchscreens and access to app stores.

    NetTabs are expected to meet specific consumer needs compared to smartphones, notebooks, netbooks and ultra thin devices, according to Deloitte.

    "This Goldilocks of devices - not too big, not too small - is expected to offer an appealing balance of form and function going forward," the firm said.

    The firm estimates consumers would use the devices to read e-books, which will be more advantageous than a traditional e-reader such as the Kindle because of its colour screen and ability to display video.

    Apple will be launching its first tablet this year. The iPhone creator is tipped to reveal its latest 'iSlate' creation at a press event in San Francisco next week.

    A few vendors such as HP, Samsung, Dell, Asus and Acer have already made their foray into the tablet PC space, which is an area that Microsoft has been pursuing for over a decade. But it hasn't had much of an impact yet.

    Analyst firm IDC has reported tablet PCs only occupied two per cent of the Australian notebook market in the third quarter of 2009. Only 12,000 units were shipped out per quarter to distributors, retailers, independent sellers and IT resellers.

    "It's not a very large market," said Neville Chan, PC analyst at IDC.

    "It's a type of device for very niche markets like health, distribution and mining. Many consumers don't see a need to pay for such a device."

    However, Deloitte says previous tablet attempts have failed to make an impact in the market for many reasons.

    Their graphics, software and user interface were underwhelming, they were not well connected to mobile or Wi-Fi networks and have largely been perceived as work-oriented data entry devices.

    However, a device that can be primarily used for media and web browsing, and is easy to use, will be more widely acceptable, Deloitte says.

    "With a new form factor and significant processing capacity, connected portable devices will likely be purchased by tens of millions of people in 2010," Deloitte said.

    The report also focused on other growing areas of technology such as cloud computing and virtual desktop 'thin clients.'

    This year, Deloitte predicts, more than 1 million seats will be turned into virtual desktops. Cloud computing (internet-based services) is set to grow by an extra 20 per cent, becoming a $US70 billion market over the next 12 months, Deloitte anticipates.

    However, there are still concerns around security, reliability, data portability and long-term cost benefits of cloud computing .

    "Significant growth in cloud computing for consumers could change many markets," Deloitte says. "Local storage such as DVDs, media storage devices and USB keys could shrink."

    There was a bit of a buzz in the media over the last few days for that term. Hopefully the name sticks.
