    At this time of night? I'd guess a bit of routine maintenance and not much more.

    People at TUAW think it might be EU movies on iTunes

    Maybe pricing updates.

    Plus, the iPhone is launched in Austria tomorrow, which I beleive starts in 10 minues or started 50 minutes ago.

    That would not require the Apple Store to be down, just the iTS.

    Probably just maintenance, product updates usually happen between 11:30am - 2:00pm GMT.

    errr, That was so funny like 4 years ago.


    Haven't been to the store in awhile, but looks like a speed bump to the Macbook and lower price on the shuffle. Let me know if I am wrong.

    I got so excited there I Riverdanced across my kitchen floor. But the Irish Apple site is working and no mention of movies. It's like discovering Santa has decided against coming down your chimney on Christmas Eve. :(

    Na, I'm just showing my age. :eek: I asked my 12-year-old nephew if he'd ever heard of Chumbawumba and he thought it was a type of chewing gum.

    Best Class War Anarchist Punk/Folk band ever (although admittedly it is a pretty small genre)

    :D

    Do you all notice something - there don't appear to be any Americans on this thread. Hmm, do you think it has something to do with the thread title? No flies on me. ;) The thing is, we could say anything we like about Americans and there'd be none of them here to object. Okay, I'll go first:

    All Americans have very big teeth.

    Maybe they're all off eating McDonalds - after all, we know that's all they eat.
