    [RANT]

    Why did MacRumors buy this domain? Macs aren't usually considered PCs (yes silly since they ARE personal computers), however, this could have been done to convert rumor-hungry PC users to type this in and discover Apple (for real), or could have just been bought by Arn to squash competition... ;)

    [/RANT]

    Anyway, why? (Sorry if this has already been asked, I did a search but nothing came up...)
    Oh, and as a sidenote... are there any other super-secret MacRumors domains?

    EDIT: You mean there aren't any RANT tags? We could sure use those! ;)

    This is similar to what apple has done:

    **deep breath**

    apple.com (the usual)
    imac.com (could cause confusion...)
    mammals.org (cheeta, puma, jaguar, panther, tiger...)
    newton.com (the return of the newton!)
    iphone.org (no, it's been there for a while :( )
    digitalhub.com
    ripmixburn.com (wtf??)
    macmate.com (hmm...)
    eworld.com (eworld??)
    xserve.com (more confusion)
    dvdstudiopro.com (and more)

    :eek:

    Maybe there are some others, but those all lead to the front page.

    And I thought MacRumors was overdoing it with pcrumors.com, applerumors.com and maybe another one...

    i though i would comment on the ones you had questions about...

    ripmixburn was the first big push for itunes and apple's digital hub marketing.

    i have not a clue about macmate, and woud be interested to see what comments someone could make on this.

    eworld is pretty old school. it was apple's attempt at an aol-like online service.
