    Anyone else notice that the newton.com domain name has a record last updated status of 4-30-08?

    Seems strange to think that the domain would be updated mid stream since the expiration date is not in the April/May time frame.

    Newton.com currently points to the main apple.com page. Why is that? I would think it would post to a Newton support page which plenty exist at Apple support.

    Coinzidenza?

    I don't know why ANY company, including Apple would let their iPhones run out of stock for over a month worldwide. Doesn't make any sense, ESPECIALLY coming from a company who has supply chain down to a science. Designed by Apple in Cupertino, Made in China. How many of you out there have tracked your packages shipped from China? I can count an iBook, mac pro, and a G4 on my hand. Supply chain is NOT their problem.

    Something is brewing...

    Cheers-

    this is true, but I think this has been pointed out many times on other threads... not the newton part though... does apple actually own it?:apple:

    MarkMonitor is the owner, but they maintain domains for Apple (and also Google for that matter).

    Could just be to stop someone getting the domain and using it for evil.

    Wouldn't explain why they updated it when it was only half way towards it's expiration date...

    I can't say that I pay that much attention to domain name registrations.

    I would be surprised if it signified anything at all.

    A number of Apple's domains were updated on April 30th, including newton.com, imac.com, xserve.com, and ichat.com.

    Others were updated on March 30th, including apple.com and iphone.com.

    I wouldn't read anything into it...the changes were almost certainly just updating some details.
