You would have thought that by going to apple.co.uk would take you to Apple! Well until a few days ago, it would have actually taken you to the website run by Apple Illustration a UK based image agency who has owned the domain since 2003. But now there has been a bit of a change around because as the registrar’s information below shows Apple Inc now owns apple.co.uk, incidentally Apple Illustration can now be found at appleagency.co.uk.
Here are the details of the new ownership of the apple.co.uk domain name;
