Down goes the Apple store. Whatever the reason is, it'll be a few short hours until we know what new goodies have been added to Cupertino's boutique. Whatever happens, we'll be right there, detailing all the action in our liveblog -- in the meantime, you can check what we're hoping to see in iOS 6...

Details are spotty but Apple special forces have apparently swept into its data center, temporarily disrupting the company's ability to sell anything online. We're expecting official word of the operation from company CEO Steve Jobs, at about 08.30 Eastern Time. With any luck, a new iMac will emerg...

Apple's online store for the US is down (all other countries' stores are still up). If I were a betting man, though, I'd say it'll be back up by 3 AM, when pre-orders for the Verizon iPhone are expected to begin. I'd also say it's a fair bet that a big percentage of people in the US who are still a...

You noticed, we noticed, everybody noticed. The Apple Store is unsurprisingly down. Look for new stuff to hit it later, after our live coverage of Apple's fall event is all over....

Hey, the Apple Store is down. Readers: we know, and we hear you! We're curious too, but we should warn you that since Apple isn't keen on launching products in the middle of the night on a weekend, it's probably nothing. Still, we'll be here if the iPhone 5G pops into existence and ruins our maratho...

Ok, you know the routine: the Apple store goes down prompting blog posts to deflect the onslaught of tips. Commenters then ponder why Apple has to go offline to add updates before a flamewar breaks out with somebody accusing somebody else of being a Nazi. Ah the internet, somebody should give it a ...

It's always an exciting day when the Apple Store goes down. And it's not even a Tuesday. Apple has updated Final Cut Studio, including Final Cut Pro 7 and Logic Pro 9. That's good news for artists! Musicians and filmmakers now have something new to play with. Even better, they can do it for less: th...

Every time the Apple Store has some downtime, magic seems to happen, especially if it happens to be a Tuesday. Not surprisingly, we get a flood of emails from excited readers a few minutes after the yellow sticky note goes up, letting us know that we better be on our toes when the store comes back u...

The North American Apple stores are down. Last week it was Aperture 2 and Apple TV software updates. This week? Post your guesses/odds in the comments. Or tell us to get lives and stop checking the store every five minutes (point taken). Let's think, is there any hardware refresh that is greatly a...

Or is Dawn in trouble? I forget. Anyway, as noted by our loyal readers, the Apple Store site is down this morning (US only at the moment -- the UK store appears to still be up), sporting the Post-it note that strikes glee into the hearts of gear groupies far and wide. Is it new iMacs? A bagful of iP...

Ah, the delicate dance that is the few hours before a Stevenote. Apple's web elves are not only busy updating the iTunes Store, it would seem that are updating Apple's online store as well (and not just in the US, we have reports that the Apple store in several countries). This just builds the exci...

Ahh, the online Apple Store is down. Can you feel the excitement. I wonder what Apple's web elves are cooking up for us. Could it have something to do with the WWDC keynote? Thanks to everyone who sent this in....

The Apple Store (US at least, all around the world) is down at the moment. Could this mean some cool new product, or just some maintenance? It is probably just Apple's web elves fixing something, but where's the fun in that? Thanks to all who sent this in! UPDATE: The Store is back up and it looks...
