Just about every future iPad#.com domain is taken.
The year is 2036.
The media is buzzing as Apple’s latest CEO introduces the iPad 25. The wafer thin, flexible screen holographic device wows the crowd.
Somewhere, an interested consumer types iPad25.com into his browser bar. But Apple doesn’t own it. (Although it owns iPad25.apple).
I was looking for Ipad 2 information today only to find that, just like iPad.com, Apple doesn’t own iPad2.com. Many people have snapped up iPad#.com domain names. I looked up the status of Ipad2.com through iPad25.com before getting tired. All but two are registered (although many are expired and going through the deletion process).
