        You don't need the equivalent .INFO if you have any of the other gTLDs. It's a completely different mode of usage and that is why TMs don't really belong here..

Having IBM.info amounts to nothing more than visiting IBM.com and clicking on the "About IBM" link.. On the other hand DomainDisputes.info or Chickenpox.info make a hell more sense than their .com equivalents..

Think of these more as "search strings" rather than catchy names..

You can't compare .INFO to .com, futhermore their valuation models will be completely different. Where a shorter .com was prime, a longer more descriptive .INFO would be extremely valuable.
