Apple Store Goes Offline [Updated]

The Apple Store went offline Tuesday morning, leading to speculation that the company is releasing new products today. Rumors have surfaced that Apple may be introducing new iPod models, updated iMac and MacBook Pro models, and even the fabled iPhone. TMO will provide additional coverage as information becomes available.

New Apple products may be on the way.

Unless Apple plans to release new products later today, it looks like the Apple Store was offline for some other reason. The available products and pricing seems unchanged.

The timing of the outage, however, is still interesting since Apple has developed a sort of track record for new product announcements on Tuesdays. It is also "New Music Tuesday" at the iTunes Music Store.
