It would seem that way. I haven't looked at the protocols, but I do have the OS X Server app ($19.99) running on a Mini on my home network with the caching functionality turned on. It appears to be nothing but a CDN that caches various Apple downloads (software, media..) locally and acts similarly to a transparent proxy. I wouldn't be horribly surprised if it was running Squid, but - like I said - I haven't looked at it. So if we're now at the point that content caching is anathema, then we'd better all just unplug from our ISPs and start sneaker netting everything. Or something.

That was hilarious. Probably one of the funniest HuffPo parodies I've seen in a long time. Although, to be fair, even they probably aren't quite that stupid. You might want to turn it down a few notches. Unless you were going for DailyKos or LGF. Then I'd say it was pretty spot on.
