    Does anyone know why going to http://www.mammals.org/ redirects you to Apple.com? I read about this about a decade ago, and I seem to remember someone suggesting a piece written by John Grisham about the Macintosh in which he referred to the computer mouse as a mammal as being the reason for this. Does anyone know for sure?

    I found this on Apple's website. I'm not sure if this is the reason. Here is a short snippet...

    Well, anybody can create a domain name and re-direct it to Apple.com. It doesn't have to belong to Apple.

    Here is a list of all the other domain names that Apple owns: http://guides.macrumors.com/Apple_Domain_Names

    This is from Whois.com:

    It is weird that the email registering it is from Excite.com.

    It's possible that a computer with nipples is in development.

    No, its because big cats (Jaguar, Panther, Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard) are all mammals. :D
