    I just found out that apple owns www.iphone.org, maybe they're planning on realeasing a true ipod-phone :spook: or maybe now that there is a ROKR they just don't want any other domains that could be confused with it. what do you guys think?

    I wonder if they will have any trouble with this company if they try to release an iPhone... Heck... If Tiger Direct was able to make a stink it seems like these guys sure could.

    i doubt it's true , it looks like a big media hype to me, just because it's a .org site , and if apple was using it theyd just buy that iphone companies domain.. and if you click links it go's back to the apple site , meaning it's linked and they are not on the same servers. i think it's bogus.

    Cool
    The domain appears to be registered in 1999, it is now 2005, and about to expire. In that period of time Apple has not created a cell phone. I don't think they will start now. We will see what happens when it comes time to renew the domain.

    it doesn't mean that apple created that domain on 1999, it might have been created by someone else and apple bought recently

    Apple might have registered the domain just to keep it out of squatters' hands. For example, www.appleipod.com and www.applepowerbook.com are not owned by Apple, and are being used for nefarious purposes.
