iPad.com and the Mystery of Enero 6 Corp. [Screenshot]
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) announced their latest product today, the iPad. Generally companies make sure to own the domain name of a product or service that they offer. Apple owns iPod.com and bought Me.com from a company called Snappville.com. However iPad.com is owned by a company called Enero 6 Corporation according to the website. Apple bought the domain name iSlate.com about a year ago which led people to believe that this would be the name of the new device.
At the bottom of the screenshot you will notice that the website is owned by Enero 6 Corp. Enero means January in Spanish which is the same month that the iPad was launched. Enero 6 may stand for January 6th. Coincidentally Apple and Steve Jobs had some milestones around that date:
January 6, 1998 – Steve Jobs announces that the company will show a $45 million profit for the first quarter of fiscal year 1998
January 6, 2000 – Steve Jobs announces OS X.
