Sex.com, one of the most expensive domain names in history, is up for auction, with bidding starting at $1 million.
Bidding, which is due to start on March 18 2010, should start at $1 million, or £670,000 Photo: CHANNEL 5
The domain name was last bought in 2006 for a reported $14 million, but what are the others in the top 10?
1. insure.com 2009 $16 million
Domain name bought by QuinStreet, making it possibly the largest ever sale of a domain name, usurping sex.com. It was originally acquired by Insure.com for $1.6 million in December 2001. The website provides life, car and health insurance quotes among others.
2. Sex.com 2006 $14 million
Bought by Gary Kremen, the founder of dating website Match.com, in 1994. Has been the subject of a lengthy legal battle, but took the prize for the highest report domain price in 2006. Is now up for auction.
3. fund.com 2008 £9.99 million
Publicly traded Internet company that operates in the financial services. Provides information on investment fund options, gives expert opinion and lets users build portfolios. There is some dispute as to whether Fund.com or sex.com holds the record for the highest price web domain.
4. Porn.com 2007 $9.5 million
5. business.com 1999 $7.5 million
Business search engine and web directory founded in 1999 by Jake Winebaum, a previous chairman of the Walt Disney Internet Group, and Sky Dayton, founder of Earthlink. In July 2007 business.com, the company, was sold to Yellow Pages publisher RH Donnelly for $345 million.
6. diamond.com 2006 $7.5 million
Not to be confused with the car insurance company, Diamond.com quite simply sells diamond jewelry. Bought by online jewelry retailer ice.com.
7. beer.com 2004 $7 million
8. israel.com 2008 $5.88 million
Billed as “your first and best source for information about Israel”. It was bought in 1994 by Joel Noel Friedman, a 46-year-old Jewish American. Rather than seek profit, he originally bought the sight in fear that it would be misused by somebody else.
9. casino.com 2003 $5.5 million
10. toys.com 2009 $5.1 million
Bought last year at auction by ToysRUs. Everybody else stopped bidding at $3 million, but the toy company and National A-1 Advertising, owners of domains such as free.com, boys.com and divorce.com bid kept bidding until the retailer won.

On July 14th 2010, graffiti artists Gabriel Edvardsson and Max Sjunnesson interpreted the project Short Film #21, by Csaba Bene Perlenberg, and created a huge billboard at the legal graffiti wall by Folkets Park/Möllevångstorget in Malmö. This is the short documentary about the event.
This film has been made by Martin Wikener, and assisted by Emelie Lindberg. This is my first marketing idea and it has truly come alive with this billboard project. Hope you enjoy it and go and visit it.
I believe that at present Lionel Messi is the best player in the World, without a doubt he is going to be the second best player in the World that wins consecutive two times on a row for the last 10 years. Ronaldinho is the first, winning in 2004, and 2005.
This is a remarkable discovery because the quality of the South Ameican playes seems to be improving all the time.
Messi is 23 years old, but he is the most dangerous player, and certainly he verified it after yesterdays match against Arsenal. One man was enough to define the unforgettable match for Leo Messi, who scored all the goals for Barcelona 4-1 win over Arsenal.
This is just the beginning for`Leo´Messi, a couple of weeks ago he was nominated as a godwill ambassador for UNICEF. Mr. Messi joins a list of extraordinary UNICEF ambassadors and spokespersons, including Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan, the agency’s first Eminent Advocate for Children, as well as Goodwill Ambassadors David Beckham, Orlando Bloom, Mia Farrow, Danny Glover, Sir Roger Moore and Shakira, amongst many others. I get the impression that he is a down to earth person, a real team player and destined for great things. Lets see if he can become one of the key players at the upcoming 2010 FIFAWorld Cup in South Africa.
Yesterday the Swedish government, in a bill to parliament, proposes that students from countries outside the European Union pay tuition fees from the academic year 2011/2012.
Until now, Sweden has been one of the few countries in Europe that has not charged any type of fees; all students – regardless of nationality – have been funded by Swedish taxpayers. But now it’s time for Sweden to compete on more equal terms with universities in other countries.
In the last decade, the number of foreign students in Sweden has more than trebled, totaling 36,000 in 2008/2009. And taxes have funded the studies for everyone. By charging fees the government now wants to award some of the money to higher education institutions that show particular excellence. Global competition for talent is increasing sharply and the government wants Swedish universities to compete with universities in other countries on the basis of high quality rather than free education.
For Swedes and EU nationals, Swedish higher education will still be fully tax-funded. Students from countries outside the EU will have to pay the full cost for tuition for studies that begin in the autumn semester of 2011. Higher education institutions will determine the size of fees themselves, based on the principle of full cost coverage. Students, who have begun their studies earlier, i.e. before the autumn semester of 2010, will not have to pay fees. Exchange students will not be affected by the introduction of fees.
