    Given that the only non-iPod domain they have is MacMini.com, I'd say this is irrelevant.

    Side-bar, your Twitter link is dead.

    Apple buys all their domains from Markmonitor.

    I imagine that they a) would also park them on their own servers and b) the address would follow some subset of the existing apple.com domain.

    Some enterprising person is probably doing an ad-funded park at that domain. Has zero to do with apple.

    Yeah, going back I typed in "imacs.com" That changes nothing of my opinion regarding whether this is relevant.

    They also have "macbookair.com" and "xserve.com"

    So, in review, no:
    "macbook.com"
    "macbookpro.com"
    "macpro.com"
    "powerbook.com"
    "powermac.com"
    "ibook.com"

    Go to www.mammals.org and then never post another thread on Apple registering a domain name before a launch again. :p:D;)

    Unlike mactablet.com, mammals.org is actually registered by Apple Inc.

    And you don't see the iBex or the iMpala sweeping the nation, do you?
