    Just to let you know, prepare for the ride, the Apple Store is down in the UK. What is coming today? My guess, how about an Airport Express revamp (promo just ended)

    Swiss and German stores are also down. To be honest, I've got no idea what's coming. Except for the PowerBooks, Apple has updated all Macs in the last three months.

    There is no real rumors for this week, which could mean a pleasant upgrade/new product. Maybe its the Ipod Socks II that didnt get updated last week! Maybe Apple didn't want to ruin the impact on the Socks update announcement by introducing a small upgrade to the ibooks!! (Saying that, the iBook upgrade was good for me and my order will go in next week)

    Either it's something new or updated PowerBooks. Or perhaps new iPod minis?

    Cram & Jam Europe

    I am almost sure it will be Cram and Jam in Europe - education offer
    A few threads have hinted at this already in the last few weeks.

    In the UK it's expected to be a bit different to the US version.
    It's likely to be a pay in full, fill in a rebate form and get a cheque.
    I head £100 cash back on an ipod.

    Damn - I was there this morning and didn't see it - could be my cache at work though.
    Maybe there including some banners, hence the site been down.

    I'd laugh all the way to my wallet if it was a widescreen option of the ibook!

    Australia still up, maybe Apple is doing a big sales promotion that is only valid in the US and Europe....

    I know I know, it's business but you know the feeling....

    It seems odd that apple would close the store on Tuesday at 8EST for maintenance. It has to be an update...but what??

    If something is coming, it will only be available in North America and Europe. So it could have something to do with iTunes. What about the iTunes Phone?

    for starters Apple would not sell it on there online store it would be the network providers that offer it with a contract

    if this was true then the online mobile shops would have it in stock/order and would be selling it to death already

    but yes they could just have links but i think we are looking at a product update or new product

    Why couldn't Apple sell a mobile phone? You just have to put your SIM chip into the new phone. Although it's not likely they're selling a mobile phone it's not impossible.
