    Seems too late for them to announce an event for next tuesday. And web server updates don't happen on a friday at midday..

    The store is usually down at this time of day when there's a keynote.

    Perhaps someone forgot to send out the invites? :D

    US Online Apple Store Down!

    US Online Apple Store Down! Is this a good sign meaning new products? Or is this just maintenance?

    Never seen them go down on a Friday... with the extended delivery times on Mini's and iMacs (going to 5 days in Europe now), I'm very curious what they have in store. With no event, it's a real mystery...

    Cool. I doubt it though, as they usually release new products on a tuesday or wednesday. Software updates, maybe though...

    Haha. The most logical conclusion. There's one guy in the audience...the janitor.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that there has never been a Friday product release in Apple's entire history.

    (I will gladly eat my words if someone can prove me wrong. I want a new iMac, too!)

    Are you guys already fishing out your wallets?

    This reminds me so much of that Simpsons episode with the Mapple store...

    I've never actually been excited like this before for the store being down..During the keynotes you know something is going to be released (unless it was lame macworld last year! Lol) But this just comes outta nowhere!

    You and me both, I want a new one as well :)

    My wallet is all ready...:)

    I actually forgot my old login, and made a new one in order to keep up with the news.

    Friday? Wouldn't rule it out though. Looks to be down worldwide at that.

    Yes...but...those were announced and publicized weeks beforehand. There has so far been no announcement about any current product updates.

    (Only eating part of my words)

    Yeah, the online store is also down here (netherlands). Would it be regular maintenance, or the new ipod touches with camera? (doubt that though)

    And if Apple would update the iPod Touch to include a camera....just imagine how many complaint threads we'd see on MR.

    But then again, Apple probably won't.
