Can A Senate Candidate Be A Game Changer For The Whole .US Extension? JoeMiller.US

August 31st, 2010 Comments off

If you’re a .US domain investor you might want to pay close attention to the Campaign of Joe Miller who is running for Senator from Alaska.

Miller is a Tea Party candidate who has a slight lead in the race for the Republican Primary for Senator pending the counting of absentee voters.

Why should you care about Mr. Miller’s campaign if your a .US investor?

Because Mr. Miller is using a .US domain for his campaign rather than a .Com.

Not only is he using a .US for his campaign, but he is prominently promoting his site JoeMiller.Us on all campaign signs and political literature.

Moreover, Mr. Miller typically campaigns  alongside plenty of workers and volunteers all wearing JoeMiller.Us shirts, carrying JoeMiller.Us signs.

These shirts don’t only promote Mr. Miller, but they are promoting the whole extension.

The site is getting traffic.

JoeMiller.Us currently has an Alexa rank of 700K.

If you have been watching the news on this election you would have seen hundreds of JoeMiller.Us signs at every rally.

Its the first time I can recall a major political candidate that chose to use a .Us extension rather than a .Com.

In my opinion this could mark a turning point for the .US extension and it can be a game changer especially if Miller makes it into the general election and get another 2+ months of National TV Exposure and the .US extension with it.

Moreover this just isn’t just an election but it will be one of the most watched of the November elections as Miller is a tea party candidate supported by Sarah Palin.

It take this type of use for the light to go off in other peoples heads that the .US extension exists and is a real option especially for a US based activity such as an election.

It could be a turning point for .US

Cvstos or Custos Challenge Chrono 577 Automatic Tonneau shaped

August 31st, 2010 Comments off

The Cvstos or Custos Challenge Chrono 577 Automatic Tonneau shaped watch is as big to wear as it is to say. Incidentally, Cvstos is pronounced the same way you would say Jasque Cousteau’s last name.

It’s aptly named the challenge because I’d challenge you to find a watch that signifies strength and fortitude in the wearers personality more than this one.

The images here don’t do the rose gold justice. If you aren’t a fan of yellow gold, don’t discount rose gold. It’s got a completely different look and personality and is much more versatile than its yellow cousin.

The skeleton face and rubber strap have a way of making this elegant timepiece look just as casual as it is professional.

This is a great watch and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a big bold skeleton faced piece. The watch we have comes inclusive of box and papers.
