My eyes may be tricking me so I thought I’d ask some other domainers if the site Ipads.com was actually a site built last year, or was it built last week and made to look like it was a year old. You might ask why someone would backdate a site. I’m not sure unless it would give some status should Apple come banging on their doors for the domain.
Like most domainers, I typed ipad.com and ipads.com to see what was on those pages following last weeks announcement by Apple regarding the introduction of the ipad. I could have sworn that ipads.com was a registrar’s parking page. However when I went back yesterday, it was a blog, with articles dating back from last year. However, dates can backdated. Also, there no comments on any of the older threads. In addition, archives.org shows no site image from February 12th, 2008 forward.
Please let me know what you think.
