NO, I dont' think it will come back either, but have to admit I was surprised
at how fast we all forget! was the official site after
Apple spun it off. Apple NEVER owned until just recently. Why did
they acquire it and let go of (it's available for sale according
to Maybe the same reason Apple bought
and has never advertised it: just covering their bases so that some rival
