The Internet – as seen with frickin’ laser beams!

Yet again the crazy worlds of diabetes and Internet intellectual property have collided. Those that care about such things (a very small minority if we’re honest) will be interested to learn that everyone’s second favourite pharma company Abbott has today applied for the new top level domain name .dot abbott.
