The Apple store is being updated. Is this an everyday occurrence, or might it mean something interesting?

I'm betting on maintainence...Sunday midnight is not the best time for a product launch.

Well, whatever it's back up again now. Does anyone see any differences?

Well, I heard on the news that a bunch of world leaders have gotten together to discuss the G7... or something.

As far as I can tell, there is nothing different from the last time I was there. Although some things could have been moved around. The *new* buttons are still in the same locations, that to me would be something you might see change, but probably not until MWNY - along with the new enclosure/G4.

usually they will update after the product has been released and shown on their front page or whatever...

and even then, they wont always update because im chure they already have all the pages all ready to go, jus a matter of puttin em up..

Yes. I note the 600 Mhz/Combo/128/20 gig iBooks are gone from the "Special Deals" section.

Probably not the major announcement you were hoping to see.

Hey, uh, were you able to buy Warcraft III before? Has the game officially been released? Because, Apple has it for sale on their online store... Maybe they're just taking orders right now... I'm lost...

Yo... If you press"Add to Order" it will show a delivery time of 24 days. How long has this game been in development? Didnt they scrap development at one point and start over?

Oh, and it is 9.81 m/s^2 (j/k.... that is funny. Gravity is probably the only form of comp acceleration that does not require 5 hours of IRQ tinkering)

Is Warcraft III a real time sim or a rpg or a hybrid or what? I am so confused
