Unless you're crazy enough to believe that Apple would announce its tablet
computer or iPods with cameras
without a press conference, you shouldn't expect anything too big when Apple's online store (down globally) comes back up later today. Odds-on favorite would be a page for Snow Leopard orders when Apple comes back up at the usual 830 time slot ET. That would give the elves in Cupertino plenty of time to ship discs by August 28th
. Then again, it could just be maintenance -- it's not Tuesday for crissake.
