Monday, 20 January 2014, Gibraltar: In December 2013, Famous Four Media signed its first Registry Agreement for its .BID generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) on behalf of the Registry operator. This momentous moment for one of the largest new gTLD registries now sets in motion a chain of events that will culminate in the launch of the .BID Registry.
In order to allow Registrants (anyone including individuals, corporations, clubs, charities and others) the chance to reserve a cool, funky and potentially valuable .BID domain name at the normal registration price, Famous Four Media has launched a .BID reservation program.
The .BID Reservation program is split into two phases: Bid-on-.BID and First-Come-First-Served (FCFS)
When? From 14:00 UTC on 20th January 2014 until 10:00 UTC on 14th February 2014
Registrants are invited to submit their bids for .BID second level domains through participating ICANN accredited Registrars. The minimum bid will be just $20.00. Reservations at the standard retail price (ask your Registrar for details) will also be accepted on a FCFS basis BUT if another registration is received at a higher bid price then it will take precedence.
First Come First Served
When? From 14:00 UTC on 19th February 2014 until the end of Sunrise Period
Famous Four Media will accept reservations, on a first come first served basis, at the standard retail price (ask your registrar for details). No further Bid-on-.BID reservations will be accepted during this phase.
To make things even more exciting!
Famous Four Media is releasing 1,200 high value domain names during Bid-on-.BID phase of the reservation program, with an estimated value of USD750,000, and is making them available from just USD19.98. For example this means that registrants could secure automatic.bid or 1dollar.bid for under $20!
In order to find out more please visit www.famousfourmedia.com/bid/
- Registrants should contact their domain name registrars in order to submit a Bid-on-.BID.
- All reservations are subject to the Sunrise registrations and the Trademark Claims Period and second level domain names will resolve as soon as permitted.
- Designated premium names will not be available in the .BID reservation program.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
