Apple Bakes Giant Domain Name Pie After WWDC
Apple may not own iPad.com, or ipods.com (not that they care, they appear to be phasing it out), but they did wait till the day of the keynote speech at WWDC to register "iospcfree.com" and nearly 50 other domain names associated with Apple products
How I didn't have the foresight to register "iphonedocumentsinthecloud.com" or "macosxlionconversationreview.com" is beyond me. Can you imagine the amount of money someone could have made? I bet "icloudstorageapi.com" would be in real high demand right now.
Sarcasm aside it is pretty amazing the amount of money some people have made off of domain name hoarding. Apple apparently bought "icloud.com" from a Swedish company called Xcerion for $4.5 million. Xcerion promptly renamed its iCloud service to CloudMe.
Below is the complete list of domain names Apple registered in response to the major features they announced at WWDC:
Are there any domain names Apple missed and should have registered? Share below at your own risk, preferably after you've registered the domain to ensure no one steals your right to gouge a multibillion dollar company in order to pay for your retirement.

Good for Apple. It saves them the headache from having to pay somebody a ridiculous amount of money for the domain name that doesn't belong to them anyway....
