    Apple Finally Gets its Hands on iphone.com for at Least $1 Million

    Up until last week, the name iphone.com belonged to a guy called Michael Kovatch. Not any more, it doesn't. The entrepreneur, who registered the site in 1995 and was planning on building a business around it, has just flogged the domain name to Steve and Co. for an undisclosed seven-digit sum.



    damn this guys deserve, he got iphone.com 12 years ago... i think the first guy who knew the iphone was coming... :D

    Congrats to Michael. That is a nice chunk of change. I bet it was over 1 million dollars.

    Assuming this dude knows how to code. But then Steve Jobs can fire him after two months... If it is me, I will take the 7 figure cash and run.

    You're kidding right? Jobs is notorious for not only being an egomaniac but working his employees way too hard. I am sure that has changed somewhat since he no longer directly oversees all the employees, but I can't imagine its a walk in the park come product launch over there.

    I'll take my million dollars and run thank you very much.
