    It seems the last several Tuesdays have brought something new from Apple. When we get up in the morning will the Apple Store be closed? When we try our Software Updater will there be a new goodie waiting? Will the fabled upgraded MBP finally arrive? Or will it just be Tuesday?
    Inquiring minds want to know....

    I hope so, but if they are pushing an update out, don't they usually update on Wednesday after a major US holiday? Thought I read that somewhere once.

    Nuffen. Sweet diddly squat. Bugger all. Zilch. Zip. Nada.

    It'll all happen on Wednesday (Thursday for me).

    Awesome! Can't wait!

    But get ready for the threads complaing that they didn't release a USB device that heats up a bowl of soup to go with that grilled cheese. :p :D

    I guess the consensus for today's new thing is the price drop on the Apple Shuffle. Tuesday's are becoming my favorite day of the week! :)

    Well the store is down, so time to start biting those fingernails. If it's MBPs then it won't be a significant change - a bump and a bada bing. Anything significant will be met with a larger fanfare, one would think....

    The shuffle price drop was on the Store last night way before the site went down.
