    I've been running the Little Snitch demo for some time now and have been noticing that the links that it tells me are active are wrong. This is what I read when I hover my mouse over the icon in the menu bar.

    For example I'm downloading the Aperture 2 manual now from Apple however Little Snitch says that Safari is downloading it from www.nationalgeographic.com.edgesuite.net or something. Like what the heck?!?!

    No other webpage, download or application was using the internet at the time. Is it that Apple uses this address or is it that Little Snitch has gone crazy? Thanks.

    edgesuite.net hosts a lot of downloads and images for apple.com

    could it be one of your widgets? perhaps the national geographic picture of the day widget?
