    Most likely for the new iPods. They're scheduled to release anytime now.

    Probably updating the times for the shipments, raising them for the 5 and all the cables probably

    Saying things like that make it unconvincing.

    You really think Apple would be adding new products this late. Most likely just a server update.

    Then why not cancel your order and get one from the store?

    Well they often do the internal upgrades on Macs during this time. I'm thinking we might see an iMac refresh.

    Maybe... just strange that it happen exactly one year after Steve's death. Maybe they are doing product update now as an homage or whatnot...

    Then again, probably just a coincidence.

    Yea, but if they were doing a tribute or something, they wouldn't do it on the store, hence it wouldn't affect the store at all. Meaning it has to be either maintenance or new products.

    It's routine maintenance....Happens all the time...Nothing of note expected until the October round of announcements which are covered on the front page.

    Are you sure it isn't new product? The iMac and Mac mini are due for a refresh around now

    Whoops, bad grammar. That's what I meant. So there is a chance that its a new product? :D how long do you think it will take before the site is back up?

    Hopefully there is some sort of update on shipping times following the news of Sharp catching up in production on the iPhone 5 screen.

    One can only hope.

    I can go another month without a new phone... but I'd prefer not to. :D

    They don't take the entire store offline to update shipping status. Sorry.
