    Default Couple of nice .mobi mentions in mainstream press

    Don't know if this has already been mentioned here in another thread, but I came across a couple of .mobi mentions in online articles.

    There's this one from a New York Times piece on museum tours using your mobile (DallasMuseumofArt.mobi mentioned about halfway down):

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/18/ar...l/18SMART.html

    And this PC Mag summary of ways to follow March Madness on your mobile (ESPN.mobi mentioned at the end):

    Thanks for sharing Dave, I hadn't seen either.

    DallasMuseumofArt.mobi is actually pretty cool. They offer tours via their mobile site. A perfect use of a .mobi.

    Here
    is a short video describing the service. They mention the .mobi address.

    In the PC Mag article (posted from MOT M) located in this thread, it says, " you don't even need a smartphone to hit the official NCAA Mobile Web site at http://www.ncaa.com/m/?sport=m-mmc, view ESPN's scores at http://espn.mobi or check out the better-formatted Yahoo! Sports for Mobile, which can be found by sending any mobile Web browser to m.yahoo.com/sports. "

    What is m.yahoo.com/sports??? Is this a .com by passing a .mobi function? It looks more like a yahoo.com rather than a yahoo.mobi. I'm confused what this m.yahoo.com/sports is. Does this mean other .com websites can just add an m, and bypass .mobi?? I guess I'm not quite understanding what this is and its implication.

    Thanks in advance for answering.

    Also, that is cool about the dallasmuseumart.mobi I'm going to check it out too. It looks like more people are learning how to use .mobi
