Issues blocks on still more domains
Apple has acquired the rights to several more domain names, made available through ICANN's continuing rollout of new generic top-level domains. The company now owns four .technology addresses: apple.technology, ipad.technology, iphone.technology, and mac.technology. It has also secured blocks against registering some domains, including apple.construction and macbook.technology.
The company's first geographically-based domain is applestore.berlin. The URL refers to Apple's Kurfürstendamm outlet, which opened just last year. The acquisition suggests that the company may pickup more retail-related domains as they become available.
