UK store just gone down, updates on way.
For how long is the store usually down when they are updating?
Anything between 5 minutes and a couple of hours, depending on the number of changes, but the UK usually goes down first and comes back up last...
iBooks? isn't that what everyone is talking about?
What's going to be the reaction if the update is striped iPod Socks or something?
(At this writing, all European stores are down, all others are open.)
(Asia and Australia are down.)
(USAia and Canadia are still up.)
crankyness from those who are waiting and smugness from ppl like me who purchased!!
Honestly, I don't see why the number of changes should make a difference. If the store admins are not complete computer agnostics, they'll have prepared and tested the updates before they transfer them onto the operational system. Technically, I don't see a reason for shutting the store down, at all (a back up system could take the load until the primary system is up again).
why am i up
i love it when the store goes down for an update lol
only to find the ipod socks get an update lol
i'm wishing the mac mini's get there update !! as i'm ready to order one today to replace my one
First, even though it's tested in a testing environment, you would want to test again in production (if you are not complete computer agnostic )
Second, an update might also involve database updates (e.g. the item master, hopefully) - not just web page updates. It needs a more than a little thought to keep data and web pages consistent when you are doing a major update while on-line.
Indeed, if it was such a groundbreaking update like striped iPod socks, Steve Jobs would wait until the next Mac Expo or WWDC to announce this I think it will be something minor, like all new iPod earphones..
I find it strange that they have to shutdown the store too, perhaps it's a limitation of web objects?
Did that actually happen?
I can still access the U.S store ...
However, I think this is it, because the European stores usually go down before the U.S store when there's an update.
i think we are just about to find out .........
USA still up...only a matter of time now (we hope )...
Shuffle socks are waaaaaaaaay overdue.
Aaaaaaand USA is down as well now.....
Bring on the new I-books and Minis!
oh...and some shuffle socks as well
US Store down
The minis were shifted to 2 day shipping this morning from 7-10 days, the ibooks were still at 7.
Mini updates today and ibooks next week is my guess.
I still can get the US store.... Hold your horses everybody...
US Store is back up....and I see no difference
Looks like we're jumping the gun again on this one....nothing to see here, move along.....
Weird, it's still up for me.
Why can I still access the U.S store?
