The time draws nigh. The online Apple Store has been shut down.
And so it begins...
Not much of a surprise here, but looks like things are starting already
why are stores down? ipad 2 announcement... not release?
They're pushing the new content to the web so it will be a simple flipping of a switch after the keynote to display the new content.
This is a good sign of having preorders available almost immediately after the keynote.
Could be announcement and release.
What's weird is that it's down so early...3 hours before the event? And even if you could order today, it would be at the end of the event...so they will have the store down for 4+ hours? Seems like the potential for a lot of lost sales (non-iPad).
good point less than 3 hours now...
It's likely that the release will be today or at least pre-ordering will be available. I see no other reason why the store would be down.
If this isnt a clear-cut sign of 2nd gen iPad being available online today, I dont know what is.
They're adding all the new content on now to get it over with. Maybe they're expecting a lot of hits (preorders) right after the keynote so they don't want to risk having issues adding the content later. The store will be back up soon and then it will be down again briefly after they keynote to flip the switch.
Damn.... i need a new pair of pants now! Thanks!
Whats wrong over at Engadget they have not made it a front page story yet?
I bet it is for pre-orders which will start today.
one word - PREORDER
I just checked the apple store website and nothing about the Ipad2 it still the macbook is on the start page and nothing on the ipad webpage ..
Watch the bottom of the homepage when it gets to be within an hour of the event and they should post the live stream link there. They're not going to put anything on the iPad page until the event is over.
Uh, we are talking about the store there buddy
Announching the mini iPhone
I just got the store update as i clicked on the store ..i check back in the afternoon to see if the website is updated..
No they wouldn't. Someone who is interested in a Apple product would just check back later. It isn't like someone is debating between an iMac and a PC and all of a sudden don't want an iMac because the site is down.
I'm trying to buy a MBP today, but the ipad announcement is getting in the way. Does anyone have an idea if the Apple Store will be back up today?
Has the store ever been unofficially down?
