    Thank you for shopping at the Apple Online Store

    I have been getting this for the past 4 hours when looking for my order status of a powerbook case. Is Apple fixing the backend of the shopping cart system for new iPods?

    I can only hope :)

    nope

    I can see the Apple store fine, but I still can't view the Apple Order Status... meaning? Is Apple rebuilding their shipping system, or is it offline while they update?

    I stated b4 that I was looking at an order status for a powerbook case that I had already ordered on Monday.

    It might not have anything to do with new iPods, but maybe it does? We'll find out very soon :)

    Well looks like the hype was for nothing...

    The 6gb ipod mini is here, but it doesn't have a colour screen, just coloured buttons on the click wheel to match the colour of the unit and a drop in price for the ipod photo's, also cutting the 40 gb model to a 30gb model.

    Nothing Major once again...

    Only thing i don't get is....they have stopped the gold version of the ipod mini....pointless, but now that makes that model somewhat of a collectors item.
