    Probably just a freckin' software update or a pink iPod Classic... just some reason to take the store down for an hour to spice up the speculations :s

    Every Tuesday the US store is down for maintenance , we just went through this last week.

    The New MBPS are going to be released on the 3rd Tuesday of this week or in March :D

    The US Store does not go down every Tuesday for maintenance. It only goes down this time on a Tuesday for a product update/release.

    German/Dutch store still up as well.. maybe it's an US only thing- some new ad for movie rentals? Or 'get your new Apple TV Firmware!'. What about a nice BBC Worldwide Banner? I don't expect anything big...

    Why would their website need to be taken down for maintenance? For a spring clean, a service, check spellings...

    Not to my knowledge, it only needs to go down for updates.

    To my knowledge even that is not necessary, just a switch over... But that would not get everyone talking like this ;). This is the :apple: way.

    As ever, the US & Canada store usually go down hours before international stores. US for the main update - Canada because its on the same server. International stores updated afterwards.

    At least thats the general idea...
