  1. Good article Mike and we agree with your warning about getting Apple typo domains.

    There are even more than the ones you list above, and any that are NOT owned by Apple are time bombs waiting to explode for them.

    They have some legal people looking out but they never catch them all, as they are not using very good tools.

    The bottom line is that affiliates should stay away from this "clever" idea. We caught one in just seconds. See the video for more info.

    Cheers,
    Peter
