Hi, I decided to enroll the Applecare Protection Plan (I bought it with my ibook way back). When I was registering it on the apple website, a notice came up that said the security certificate belonged to 112.2o7.net , which I immediately found really suspcious. I did a whois search using that domain which is owned by a company named 'Omniture.' After doing a search on Omniture on mr, i only found only thread mentioning it. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=172333 (which is involved with the itunes' mini store) I've did a bit of searching on google, finding this - http://since1968.com/article/154/itunes-update-update So, i decided to check out on apple.com I did a google search, restricting the results to apple.com and the term 'omniture.' The results brought only a job listings regarding omniture and a link to the king kong trailer. So, I'm wondering a bit: Why does Apple outsource its management of the Applecare to a 3-party company like omniture ? That's a more hypothetical question, I suppose, probably since only Apple employees [or maybe some mac geeks like you know that answer]. I'm willing to consent to give my personal information to a single company like Apple, but with other companies getting involved for no integral reason, it makes me pretty hesitant. regards, will.
