That's right, the US and Canadian Apple stores are down. However, other international sites are still up. Of course, any outage usually means they'll return with new product. So get the product juices churning and sound off with your best bets in the comments below. Then check back in an hour or two when we'll know for sure.
Update: Er... it's back without any noticeable updates. We'll keep digging but this looks like a non-event.
