What’s New? : The New Non-Latin

To kick off this new feature of What’s New?, covering what’s new in tech- the Middle East is now represented on the internets!

The first Internet domain names using non-Latin characters are beingArolled out, a plan put into motion after approval from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). Arabic-speaking nations are the first to reap the orthographic benefits, with new country codes available for Egypt (), Saudi Arabia (), and the United Arab Emirates (S). The Egyptian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, previously online at mcit.gov.eg, is blazing the trail with its new URL:A-SS.
