    Dot Weekly posts a list (via TechCrunch) of fifty new domain names registered by Apple on Monday in association with its announcements made at its WWDC keynote. While none of them appear to be a surprise given the features and products announced at the event, the list does provide an interesting glimpse at how Apple is locking up web references to its products.
    The new registrations are of course accompanied by icloud.com, which Apple acquired from Swedish company Xcerion as that firm rebranded its cloud services as CloudMe. Apple apparently also acquired icloud.org from Xcerion as part of that deal, although that domain continues to redirect to Xcerion's CloudMe services instead of Apple's iCloud pages.

    Like the idea of this for protecting your stuff.

    The fact a majority of these won't be used as a separate website, just redirections, show how much Apple feels people will try to take their products and change and put out false info on.

    Anyone who actually goes to site named osxlionconversationview.com looking for Apple stuff deserves to have the MacDefender trojan on their machine.

    Good job. What you just did is called cybersquatting. Good luck getting a penny out of Apple.

    It may turn out to be iClod.com if past history is an indicator.
