Has anyone visited iPhone.org?

I don't know what this has to say about anything, but I'm just wondering about it. Have any of you ever gone to <a href="http://www.iPhone.org"; target="_blank">iPhone.org</a> before? Does this mean that there might be something big in Apple's future after all?

    But curiously iphone.com belongs to someone else entirely.

    It just took me to Apple's home page.

    Yeah... But why? Apple doesn't have anything called the iPhone, do they?

    Look at the date.. 1999



    When the iMac first came out, Apple registered all sorts of i... internet addresses, I am suprised they did not register iSlicedBread.com.



    Anyway, once upon a time there was a piece of Apple supplied code called the Apple Telecom Manager, thanks to it, my computer could discernate between voice, data and fax calls. But Steve killed it. I doubt they'll go back to anything as useful as this.

    Why is that...? That is the ONE THING missing for me right now. I have a modem in my G4... I want to be able to manage my voice/fax data through my mac like I USED to on my old IIvx in the mid-'90s. I want to be able to use it as an answering machine, fax machine... to make and recieve calls on... Such a shame that there isn't anything like that available yet.



    I need Telephony, Apple!

    ah man! If I could receive phone calls on my computer, and have a little screen with a little green alien guy pretend to talk to me, I could be like every 1980's-movie-teenager.



    Come On Apple!!!

    Not to sound like a jerk or anything, but, this comes up once every 4 or 5 months. Like someone else pointed out, they've owned this domain for a long time and they haven't done anything with it. Mammals.org is another one (supposely it has something to do with Darwin, Carbon, etc)

    Thanks, I don't think that Apple will be making any iMammals anytime soon. I believe you now. I wasn't really thinking that the iPhone thing made much sense anyway, but I WAS confused.

    Yup, I've been here since Jan '99 (ignore the "official" date, they lost our records awhile back) and it's a perennial favorite. Apple went iHappy for awhile and this is one of those instances...unless they've been working for three years on something super-secret.



    Not going to hold my breath.

    I wonder what Apple's domain registration bill is every year? I wonder how long they'll keep something until they decide it's worthless.



    dot-org? wow...

    I hate to be an ass here, but I am the one who broke this "story" in summer 2000. It is VERY OLD. No one has yet challenged my claim that I discovered it......though I am certainly open to the possibility that I wasn't the first one here to find it.
