    Let's assume I own the domains i-phone6review.com, appleiphone6review.com and iphone6review.com, what would you do with it?

    I guess you are talking about how we would monetize it? Because the domain really explains what type of content should be put on there.

    Right, but I think it's worth more than just a review site.

    ...nevermind. It's a review site, and that's what I'm going to do.

    $5 is too much. I would feel like i'm ripping you off. Will you take tree fiddy?

    On a serious note, would you advise redirecting the domains to a single domain or should I build out each domain with a different website. Leaning towards a 301-redirect.

    I would say good timing, make a small review site, and churn until you get burned by the C&D.

    You think I'm going to get a C&D? How strongly do you feel about that? I would rather turn this into a long term site, as would anybody, but if I'm going to get a cease and desist I might as well get some mula.

    You are using trademarks, so a C&D will only be a matter of time once the sites go live and even faster if your are making money from them.

    You might make a couple of bucks from selling them now to a noob but if Apple chase you then you won't get a penny.

    And if you say no, you won't obey their command to f*ck off, they'll just blow your nose with P20 sandpaper. That's how Apple treats sites that bank on their product/company names.

    But yes, sorry to say the domains are not worth too much, because Apple might hunt them down any moment now.

    Well, Let's assume I own the domains i-phone6review.com, appleiphone6review.com and iphone6review.com, what I would do with them is , make it look like I had sold them to somebody else, then make sure they were on some offshore bullet proof hosting, with domain privacy with no way to link back to me. Then I would milk them for as long as possible before they were seized or the host buckled.

    Sounds fun, but too much for me honestly. I also don't know the legal repercussions of such a thing. I'm going to upload a quality 1000 word article and maybe link to some affiliate offers and see what happens. I'll post again if I get a C&D or anything interesting happens.
