    Weird time to do it - when the weekend's kicking in across the world! And your call centres are more likely to be going to overflow, lesser trained staff... bizarre

    Could be something boring like new credit card processing, new order database etc

    G5 Powerbooks at last!





    Just kidding :D

    Something's up though, but this does seem a weird time for it.

    Apple Store eCoupons connection?

    Who knows. I just got another Apple Store eCoupon today and it seems like I got my first one right before or right after the iPod mini was announced.... Lets hope it's a major revision!

    Maybe it's some new discount, but I doubt it's anything significant at 7:00 PM on a Friday. Who'd notice (other than us dorks).

    yeah, i doubt it's any kind of significant hardware update... probably some new discount or new 3rd party software announcements?

    or maybe iTMS hit some milestone..? (edit: d'oh, didn't think through, why would that be on the store?)

    Well, it says they'll be back within an hour... I guess I'll find out when I get home since I'm leaving here pretty soon.

    I'm mainly trying to avoid getting my hopes up. I hope it is something good! Let's get these updates rolling!

    Yeah, it's back up now. Nothing seems different though. Certainly nothing major.

    Are the memory discounts different? I think they used to be slightly more than they are now. Now the max seems to be $630. Didn't it used to be $700?

    japan store is back up. memory deal was not there, so nothing seems to have changed...

    perhaps they re-organized the best sellers list or something...

    :eek:

    could it be

    strange thing happened to me...............received an email from apple about panther training free to .mac users, before it loaded fully it disappeared

    No trace in trash or any other folder, anyone else had this, could this be why sites were down, even though its not an apple store thingy. Anyone know whether panther training was available in .mac before tonite.
