Apple Negotiates For Unlimited iTunes Downloads
I must admit that I've bought (and downloaded free) apps from the App Store and had to re-download them later for free (due to reseting the hardware).

ICANN Approves .xxx Suffix For Porn Websites
They will go register youporn.xxx so they have their name protected, and one will redirect to the other.
But if the .com address always redirects to the .xxx address, then firewalls could be easily configured to disallow all .xxx domains.
I guess that's one possible plus point.
