Was in the Apple Alderwood store this afternoon and was told that activation was going offline from 7PM PDT today till sometime tomorrow. The Apple rep had no other information other than it would be offline until sometime tomorrow. Can't remember what time, though. Could mean that the activation app only will be upgraded or it could mean a software upgrade and Apple is giving themselves enough time for final testing and possible pulling of the update if problems arise prior to releasing to the world. Let's see what tomorrow means?
