    Default How to view swf on iPhone

    The latest tidbit on apple iPhone comes in the form of a domain name -- iphone5.com -- for which Apple has filed a claim with the World Intellectual Property Organization. In its current state, iPhone5.com is a forum site, created in February 2008, according to the WhoIsrecord. Its copyright statement clearly indicates that it is "not endorsed, sponsored, nor otherwise affiliated with Apple" and that it was created "for the sole purpose of entertainment and knowledge."

    And apparently at least some of the denizens of the site like it just fine that way. Worried that if Apple were to take control the site would be shut down, a commenter named Morphius wrote today: "we as members here before the 4s was even released at iphone5.com should stand our ground against Apple.
