Apple Online Store Down with New Look
We typically avoid posting a story each time the Apple Store goes offline for updates. While the Apple online store famously goes offline to introduce new products, it also goes down for routine maintenance.
Tonight's downtime is likely related to maintenance or other non-product tweaks, but notably the "We'll be back soon" graphic that should be quite familiar to long time Apple followers has been changed.
The original graphic (above) was on a sticky note and has been in place for many years. Every time Apple's online store goes down, visitors would be greeted with this yellow sticky. Tonight, we see a new graphic overlaying a linen background that has been popularized in iOS.
Apple has several product lines that are due for updates soon, including the Mac Pro and MacBook Pro. These overnight downtimes, however, are more typically related to routine maintenance rather than new products. The change in "We'll be back" graphic may foreshadow other graphical tweaks to the online store.
Update: The online store returned without any notable changes.

Anyone notice that the wording also slightly changed from "shortly" to "soon"?
"Soon" would seem to imply a longer duration than "shortly"... so it sounds like they might be updating two product lines at once. I'll go ahead and place bets that the two are:
1) New MacBook Pros with Ivy Bridge
2) Updated iPad 3 with new display tech to fix yellow screen issue

Think about it kids.
Today Apple updates Final Cut.
A new Sticky.
And this odd thing which I have never seen.
ADC posted builds of OSX Server yesterday. ALL builds.
From 10.5.1 to 10.6.8. Very strange. Do these builds have support for Thunderbolt ? Or is it simply ClamXav.

tomorrow it's wednesday, which, if yo think about it, it's always the day apple chooses to introduce new products quietly!! this could mean that every mac it's getting the update tomorrow!!
