    Okay,

    was just going to update my Apple account, but I get the famous 'We'll be back soon' page.

    New Mac minis?

    I imagine that they are like many commercial sites (like Best Buy) that do their regular site maintenance early Sunday morning because of the low traffic.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up, Apple typically releases things on Tuesdays, not the weekend.

    Hopefully there will be some aluminum macbook refurbs, that way I can get 4gb of ram with money I save :D

    The store has been down for a few hours now (here in the UK). I'm pretty sure they'll just be changing iLife '09 status to SHIPPING but it doesn't take hours to do that. Hmm...

    hmm, i wonder what they are doing to it. I was just trying to get my tracking number so that I can track my MBP 2nd replacement...

    Should be back up before this evening, hopefully.

    IT'S SUNDAY.

    Apple updates on Tuesdays. End of thread.

    I tend to agree but isn't that exactly the problem Apple is trying to get around these days. People expect them to unveil things on Tuesdays. Why not shake things up for the week ahead. It's probably just iLife '09 shipping anyway.

    Nothing like a little bit of curiosity and anticipation to brighten up a dreary Sunday morning. ;)

    Update Day = Tuesday

    At that time it may be Monday in other parts of the world, but when Cali is Tuesday its update day.

    End of story.

    it is entirely possible it was an accident or they wanted to clean something up

    I did notice the refurb section lacks some products i saw last night though
