    Indeed it is. Wonder why? :confused:

    Guess it can't be anything good if it's not already on the US store.

    International stores tend to go down first before US - but this is a good sign for new products. :)

    [EDIT] Australian and a number of other European stores are also down, so the US store will probably soon follow. Looks promising.

    Maybe the rumored 17" Macbook Pro?

    or, Apple announcing that they'll be switching back to PowerPC processors! or even 68k!

    Here's hoping for a 13" Macbook (although, I know it's highly unlikely)...

    Swedish store is down too.

    It's exciting!

    But I MUST stay calm - I remember the anti-climax of Remote Desktop the other week. ;)

    See, now Monday nights are a good time to launch products. No uni tomorrow morning so the late night is not a problem, tonight's TV is Boston Legal then Scrubs and Arrested Development, all on Channel Seven so I don't have to get up to change the channel. I've got the new Family Guy on the way so that should fill another 20 minutes if needs be.

    I'm gonna go make some tea and make a night of it.

    And if it's just some silly software update I'm gonna cry.

    US Store Down...

    It could be that the boxed version of Mac OS X comes with 10.4.6 update :D

    And Finland bites the dust.

    I'm not bitter. Even if they do open the FI shop first and I order something first they'll still ship to the world and his dog first.

    Sorry.. am bitter about Apple in Finland :( Been burned too many times with their "ordering logistics" and that annoys me as a Mac Fan.

    Just went online to check for mails, but then: Stores down!

    Even if I don't want to buy any new hardware, I'm curious to see what's coming next. I think my grocery shopping has to wait.

    Damn you Apple!

    Based on the spacing between the optical drive slot and the latch button, I think it's reasonably safe to say that's a photo of a 15'' MBP, and therefore the image is fake.

    .. Not to say 17'' MBPs won't be announced today.

    OK, it's now 10:07pm Mon 24/4/06. If the store is not back up by 11:07pm I'm going to start throwing lawyers.

    Seriously Apple, a man needs his sleep and if this is going to be another 2am night waiting for something at least tell me.

    See, MWSF kicks off at 4am my time every year and I don't care because I know that it starts then. Leaving the "we'll be back within the hour" sign up is just plain cruel.
