AppleOnline.com and AOL 9?

An anonymous submission notes the existance of the domain name AppleOnline.com - which is owned by Apple.



It appears the domain was owned by a 3rd party up until at least April 02 2001. It's unclear when Apple acquired this domain name.



The same submission claims that AOL Beta 9 uses Quicktime. (ed note: I'm not aware of the signficance of this if there is any at all)
