    Gigaom says "Apple May Have Snapped Up iCloud.com" because "My source [...] says that Xcerion has sold the domain to Apple for about $4.5 million. Xcerion hasn’t responded to my queries as yet. At the time of writing, the Whois database showed Xcerion as the owner of iCloud.".
    EdibleApple says "Apple reportedly buys iCloud.com domain for $4.5 million" because "Gigaom is reporting that Apple recently purchased the iCloud.com domain from Xcerion for a cool $4.5 million.".
    Which on Slashdot becomes "Apple Buys iCloud.com Domain For $4.5 Million" saying "A report on late Wednesday night relayed that Apple recently purchased the iCloud.com domain from Xcerion for a cool $4.5 million.".
    When enough people speculate on the same thing, it apparently makes it undeniably so.
