Apple Store Goes Offline

Appleis online retail store went offline early Tuesday morning, only a week after the Macworld Expo 2008 Steve Jobs keynote presentation. The Mac and iPod maker typically displays the familiar "Weill be back soon" sign when adding new or updated products, but occasionally takes the store offline for routine maintenance, too. Apple could be prepping to release new MacBook Pro models, or might just be clearing the cobwebs from its site code.

New products, or routine maintenance?
