    hey,

    bit of a strange one but bare with me....

    goto google.com and type 'iphone' (no quotes)

    4th result is www.apple.com/lae !!!!

    can't find the word 'iphone' anywhere on the page though....

    however goto www.apple.com/lae/hardware - it's extremely out of date! which country is this for?

    EDIT - answered my own question! its for latin america.... still a bit strange how out of date it is though!

    Thats because they discontinued the site. If you click on any of the links on the main page it takes you to the US apple site. So they no longer have a Latin America hardware page even though evidently they didnt close the site down, which is always something you should do.

    the site describes them as having 'hefty hard drives' (40gb)!:)

    Yes - registered by Apple quite some time ago. It means at least not much if nothing. Its very old news.

    Maybe because lots of the links which point to that site contain the text iPhone.

    i think this could easily turn into a 'graveyard pages' thread, with a competition to find the oldest page on apple.com!

    interestingly the intel ads have gone
