    The Store goes down just for maintenance now and then, it doesn't necessarily mean that anything is being added. In fact, considering there was an announcement very recently, there's a pretty good chance nothing is being added.

    Hmmm... I don't know, isn't maintenance usually a late night job? I'll agree that something big almost definitely isn't in the cards but it has to be more than routine maintenance I'd say (hope).


    EDIT: it's back... let have a look!
    EDIT 2: Looks like I'm sadly mistaken. I don't see anything new or exciting. Or at least not new and exciting enough for me to notice. Anyone notice some sort of quiet upgrade?

    what about the iTunes wifi store? I can't see minor product updates being responsible for bringing the store down but I can see the addition of the announced wifi store being a reason. And since they just added ringtones the day prior, which was the other big announcement about iTunes, it would not surprise me.

    Any thoughts?

    Well it's a big store... Apple Store programming group must have a ton of quality assurance to run before they bring the store back from updating for all those new iPods. But there can always be the inadvertent QA tester, too: some lucky customer innocently logs on to buy an art deco green shuffle for 79 bucks and it turns out to be a 7995.62 debit to her plastic. Et voila, the store was a public beta after all. Briefly.
