    Same thing for the canadian website. I hope we will see new hardware but at this point I doubt it. Probably just maintenance.

    OK, too bad. Got excited. Hadn't seen that post. I know they "don't launch on Sundays" but the first might happen sometime, right?

    Updating

    If the the store is down for maintenance, why don't they say maintenance? It says they are " updating " the store. I saw a blurb that they are redoing the store for a better interface. Perhaps that' s what they are doing?

    So it has happened before that they pulled down the store on Sundays. Those times it has mainly been for UI improvements and graphical updates. What is updated this time? I guess we'll know soon...

    Yup..... even the business store is looking like it's getting updated for the possible new interface. :confused:

    As its been done on a Sunday, I wonder if the UI changes will be substantial and the store will be down for longer.

    They upgraded the store a few weeks back in some countries and I imagine this will be the point at which they could roll out those changes to their other markets.

    With WWDC happening in a few weeks, the best I can imagine is that this update is required now before they update their range. They might also be putting in changes that won't be visible until WWDC - better to make those big changes now and then just make a minor tweak when the range changes.

    Everything seems normal to me. No updates/maintenance for me.

    Just down for maintenance. Always curious why anyone ever expects there to just be new products added this way. When has Apple ever done that..

    Every time. The store goes down for maintenance and comes up with new products. Has been that way for several years at least.

    Christmas

    I must say, some of you are acting like little children at Christmas. Can't wait to get down stairs.

    Well, you may think what you want but I was following each new MBP and iMac launch since 2010 and it was always that way.

    Have you followed the Apple website every single time it's updated?

    Yes... WHILE they're being announced. The important part is that the product is being announced, not that the store is down, because that happens for other reasons.

    The chances of them slipping in the first redesign of the MacBook Pro in 4 years by way of a Sunday store update is NONE. Zero. It would be incredibly stupid marketing.

    No, I have followed the Apple website every single time new products were introduced.

    ----------

    This is absolutely correct. And this is also what I am saying. I was just stating the fact that Apple's website goes down each time new products are introduced in reply to FlatlinerG. Of course it does not mean that website down = product upgrades, but when did I say anything like that?

    Of course they know it creates buzz.... They don't care if you being driven crazy .... as long as you keep "Apple" in your thoughts they're happy....

    Does anybody think there are similar threads popping up when JC Penny or Canadian Tire websites go down for maintenance? Or for any other reason? We, the Apple lemmings, really need to get out more, eh?

    But you're acting as though it's going to come back up with new products..Of course the site goes under maintenance when new products come out, but just because the site is under maintenance right now doesn't mean that new products are just going to appear.
