[mobile.ask.com...]

It uses Skweezer to reduce page bloat. That includes your ads.

Designed to minimize keystrokes, increase navigability on small displays and accelerate page loads, Ask Mobile offers a special interface and search tools to help searchers find what they are looking for faster. The announcement was made at DigitalLife, a consumer event in New York City dedicated to educating consumers on what the digital lifestyle means in every aspect of life - at work, home and play.

I had a customer email me last week say she was afraid she was "missing the land rush" for .mobi domains...

I told her not to bother. In my opinion, the TLD ".mobi" will fizzle and/or be swamped with spam sites like .biz, .info, .ect...

As long as web capable phones, pda, etc.. can display a ".com", the .mobi is just another money maker for dom regs and possibly a few pennies for MFA sqatter types.

Opposing opinions?

Back to the topic at hand, I'm surprised at the lack of interest in this development.

Isn't this just another form of dynamic content scraping?

ask.mobi is a premium name, which means is not available for purchase yet.
I guess they could not take it in the trademarks period since they don't hold a trademark on that name, so it was put in the premium list.
So, ask.com will have to compete amongst other domainers to get his .mobi version.
