Sources in position to know confirm that Apple bought the domain as GigaOm first reported Thursday , though they declined to say whether its rumored $4.5 million price tag was accurate. Just what Apple plans to do with the domain is unclear. Presumably, it will have something to do with whatever cloud-based services the company is rumored to be ramping up in its 505,000-square-foot North Carolina data center.
