I wish some rich, Mac-obsessed bastard would buy it, hire a couple of kick-ass reporters and/or rumor-mongers and sink bucks/resources into AI to make it - to borrow a phrase - all that it can be.
Not to be rude but why would they have to be rich? I have honestly be quite interested in purchasing the domain. Quite simply put, there is no one to contact with regard to this information.
All of the email addresses I have tried bounce back as non-existant. The front page has no content that would be worth anything. There are no other services. It is essentially just a front page pointing to these forums.
The only value would be these forums which while entertaining do not really generate revenue that I am aware of.
So we are left with the front page with the two ad spaces on it. What they manage to generate above the cost of for bandwidth would be the only thing to consider with regard to the purchase price. That and anything that might be valuable about the domain name appleinsider.com
Anyway I would be interested if there were actually someone to contact...
