Ok - I have been without MM all day now. There is a discussion thread on the Apple support pages with others having the same problem - some have said it has been going on for days. According to an online service chat I had, there is a little server problem going on. The interesting thing is that Apple's status page for MM says everything is up and running??? So, could this indicate the new MM that has been rumored, or the iTunes cloud service? I wonder if they are having "server" problems because they are getting ready to go online with one or both of these? Anyway, if you have been having problems with MM, Apple is aware and working on it.
