Not Just .com
It's amazing how big the web is getting that there will be hundreds of gTLDs. I think a lot of people put a premium on .com that isn't really necessary anymore – isn't that the purpose of all of these new suffixes anyways?

Anyways, this may end up being a domain squatter's paradise. Buying up a whole gTLD sounds interesting, but it is super expensive.
