    Could be anything...small maintenance, tiny updates, or something totally new and unexpected!

    Maintenance on a Thursday? I thought they only did that on the weekends?

    AU store down too. Maintenance is possible but unlikely mid-week. Have to keep an eye out.

    Thursday is not an unusual day for updates at Apple, but mostly store updates occur on tuesdays and thursdays feature software updates and such.

    You know what I'd like to see? New displays. It's about time that the 30" Cinema display catches up with the already 8 month or so old 24" LED display...

    In fact, I just noticed that the product page for the 24" LED display still shows the "old" aluminum MacBook in the photos...which is now a discontinued model. So you'd think they'd either update it with the new 13" MBP....or....they are just waiting to revamp that whole page?

    Could be. I think there's a high possibility of Apple updating the ACD's today.

    Have you tried the AirMouse Pro iPhone app? It really does a great job turning the iPhone/iPod touch into a wireless multitouch touchpad (especially for $2.99). Paired with a wireless keyboard....pretty good setup. Although, not as nice as something like the above photos....

    I have thought about that idea over and over... I really love the mini bluetooth keyboard that Apple have. I've got one of these at the moment, but it's RF and butt ugly: http://www.globtech.de/images/tast/KeySonic_ACK-540RFII.jpg.

    Do me proud, Apple.

    Will it be back to school stuff?

    sounds like a long shot but maybe they'll add Snow Leopard for pre-order?:cool:

    I wish...

    surely with so many down at the same time this could be something even though it isn't Tuesday:D!

    Do you think that it could be tablet time? Or perhaps just a bump to the imacs?:confused:
