As of 1:55 AM CST,
http://store.apple.com/
has the "We'll Be Back Soon" message showing.

Dunno if this is standard maintenance or what.

Product updates tend to happen on Tuesdays, so I doubt it.

Early on a Sunday morning? Can't be clearer this is maintenance.

Might be early where you live, but here in Switzerland is 9.30 am Sunday morning.

Maintenance. Apple releases on Tuesday, no new iMacs/Mac Minis until Tuesday at least.

The Apple Store is still down.
Apple seems to have it's own definition of a 'short' time-span.

Apple releases on Tuesday.

Except for when they release on another day of the week :p


However there's no chance on a Sunday. ;)

My guess is that they're busy updating the store...

My guess is that they're busy updating the store...I'd go further than that and say they'll probably be back soon.

I'd bet a shiny Pound it's nothing more than routine maintenance. At most, a few third-party sundries might be removed or added but you're not going to see any major new products or owt.

Sweeping the floor, cleaning the windows, just generally tidying up the store I expect.
