Widespread panic has ensued as the Australian Apple Store went down and its Yellow Sticky went missing. TUAW has received an anonymous ransom demand for the safe return of the sticky. This is apparently not a joke  . While we wait with bated breath -- both for word about the safe return of our yellow friend and for what the store update will bring -- let us know your predictions. Drop us a comment with your thoughts.
