    They're probably just going to update them with "Now shipping"... or maybe "Shipping March" :eek:

    I'm not expecting anything overly interesting but it's the first time the stores been down on a Tuesday for awhile so it's worth celebrating. ;)

    Given that the US store is still up and running, I'd guess this is more likely some routine maintenance or at most a price tweak or two – if you're hoping for Quad 4GHz Intel Power Macs this afternoon I wouldn't go holding your breath just yet...

    The U.S. store is always later in coming down than the EU stores on days when there is an update. It usually happens just after 8am ET.

    EDIT: The U.S. store is now down as of 7:55am ET.

    And exhale.... damn. ;)

    If anything particuarly interesting was about to be released I guess we'd have got wind of it by now. Can't help but be curious though.

    TV content added to iTunes and iPod Shuffle discontinued

    US Store will go down within the next 15 min

    My guess :D

    US Store is down now. So SOMETHING is happening anyway... even if it's not going to be too exciting.

    It is down...I hope something cool will be coming out, but I think they will just say that MBP's are now shipping.

    It always says that.

    For the recorded this is because they are launching the Apple Smartphone today. I know because the postman delivered my Palm T|X from Amazon about 45mins. ago and I just broke the seal and started charging it.....bugger.:(

    Hey! I choked on a Mighty Mouse once too. Tricky little b*ggers.

    Point taken though. I was just trying to stop myself becoming hysterical with excitement. :eek:
