That IP indeed belongs to Apple.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Well, from that I can conclude that Apple owns the entire /8 block
For what it's worth, apple.com, me.com etc are all held within that 17/8 range.mike

You are indeed correct (here). Not to get sidetracked but I've never quite understood why corporations need whole /8 blocks especially when one considers that they've all be allocated.
