The web is quite a saturated market place and it seems that some businesses are going to extra lengths to make their businesses stand out. Google has recently purchased the .app gTLD for m, .tech recently went for just shy of m and .baby was snapped up for a cool m - these examples show that some of the new domains are being treated like gold dust!
