Apple Store Offline [UPDATED]

Appleis online store disappeared Tuesday morning and was replaced with the familiar "Weill be back soon" message. The message typically indicates that Apple is about to release a new or updated product -- possibly the rumored new iMac -- and the company does have a track record for springing surprises on Tuesdays. Be sure to check back with TMO for any Apple product announcements.

New goodies from Apple may be on the way.

The online store came back to life later in the morning, but it appears that there are no new or updated products listed. Todayis downtime was most likely maintenance related, which means everyone will have to wait a little longer for new iMacs, iPods, and the fabled ultra-light MacBook Pro.
