It appears the apple.com has acquired the domain ME.com
The domain is now registered at markmonitor.com and the DNS servers have been recently updated.
Me.com points to the domain administrator as Apple’s Ken Eddings, the same employee responsible for MobileMe.com as well as many other Apple-owned domains, including iPod.com.
Apple uses markmonitor.com for most of its domains including mobileme.com which has been rumored to be the replacement for the .Mac name
Does this acquisition give more credibility and worth to the new .me extension.?
Or will apple use the ME.com to claim infringement on some .me names?
