Apple Store goes down

Apple has brought down its online store for updates ahead of expected new product additions. The company is displaying its usual 'We'll be back soon' note alongside text that reads 'We are busy updating the store for you and will be back shortly.' Apple historically takes down its online store just prior to unveiling revamped products. Widespread speculation among industry watchers suggests that Apple is preparing to ship new MacBooks featuring Intel's new Core 2 Duo processors. An online retail website earlier this week appeared to have mistakenly published a product page containing Core 2 Duo-based MacBooks, which boasted the same specs as the previous revision with the exception of the new processor.

    'Bout time! I'll be ordering the MacBook with a Core 2 Duo just as soon as it comes back up!

    Christmas comes a little early this year.

    Not quite a record

    The record for down time actually belongs to Kevin Costner's career.
