    It's Tuesday and nothing happened. Websites, even Apple's will go down from time to time for routine maintenance. It means nothing.

    I don't think it's anything to get excited about, which in my opinion means nothing. This board is riddled with opinion that seems to outweigh facts, yours included in case you hadn't noticed.

    Sometimes I think they do this on purpose to wind people up. It works!

    Only Apple can get away with sucking so badly that they can't do simple site maintenance/updates without taking their site down for hours. :p

    I'm guessing it's either the new XServe, or they are just doing maintenance.

    But if it was maintenance they would close the whole site?

    Why? If it was new content then if the site is properly configured it would just be a case of updating information on a database and the next request would get the new data. Even with different servers for each country it wouldn't be too difficult to synchronise. Could you imagine the BBC or CNN doing this to their site everytime a new story came along?

    Good Heavens!

    This is a rumor site, can't we speculate without people jumping down out throats?

    I think there will be a couple of new things or additions to the store, not sure what though.

    Don't say things like that, your posts may get deleted…
    ;)

    You may well be right.

    Indeed, this is a rumor site, and the Apple Store being down is speculation heaven. That said, I agree that if the Apple Store being during a keynote or when the most of the Mac hardware line is being overhauled, it makes sense.

    But just to add one new product? Seems to me it is either publicity, or Apple needs to redesign their store maintenance procedure.

    In other news, I just got my Mac Pro shipping notice -- yeah, baby!

    Any experienced Apple follower understands that this almost certainly means a change in the product line up.
