Apple pay $4.5 million for icloud.com. Now that's what I call domain flipping.

    Apple, Yahoo, Amazon and all the other cloud service providers will soon get a lawsuit as MPAA/RIAA are targeting such services for harboring illegal files that are considered copyright infringements. I'm guessing the MPAA/RIAA will have their work cut out for them for the next few years suing these guys

    With over 30 bln in cash and cash equivilents, 4.5 mln is nothing to Apple.

    Literally, just a drop in the bucket.
