    Earlier today I got online, only to see that Apple's start page was in fact the Washington Post's front page. Now (tell me if I'm going crazy) I cannot get the iTunes links to work without it going to the NYT and saying "Page Not Found". Please help, I think that I am CRAZY!!!:eek:

    washington post redirection

    Yes - happened to me also. Checked other machines at same time, including iphone and no problem. Rebooted the macbook pro on which I saw the problem and haven't had the problem since. I was glad to see that someone else experienced it.

    I've experienced this a few times at the Apple Reseller I work for. It effects all the machines (including demo macs) on our LAN.

    I had thought it was something to do with our ISP in the UK (BT internet) getting their routing/DNS mixed up. But if people in other locations are having problems that would suggest a routing/DNS problem 'state side'.

    Strange thing is, it's always the washington post that it goes to and never anything else.
