As of 8:45 a.m. eastern time USA, The Apple Store is down.

New Mac Pros? New iPods? Has the new iPhone arrived early?

Well, to answer my own questions (in order): Doubtful, no (wait until September), and of course not.

It's probably just routine maintenance. I doubt anything will have changed when it comes back up. But since I'm posting this (to let you know that we know it's down) let me ask you this:

if you could have this downtime actually lead to one new updated product, what would it be?

Update 10am: Back up! Still no unicorn ponies. *sigh*
