Apple Store closes

The Apple Store online has closed for maintenance updates ahead of company CEO Steve Jobs keynote speech, which is scheduled to take place at San Francisco's Moscone Center during the Macworld Conference & Expo. Displaying the usual "We'll be back soon." post-it note image, the store notifies users that Apple employees are busy updating the store, and that service will return shortly. Historically Apple takes down its store during planned special events and at unsuspecting times to add new products or upgrade its services. Industry watchers and analysts expect the Cupertino-based company to debut a cellular phone during the keynote speech today, alongside potential movie deals with Paramount to offer full-length feature films on the iTunes Music Store for purchase and download. Visitors can tune in to MacNN's live coverage of the keynote speech to view events as they happen.

    I can't believe it! They've closed the store! You know what that means, right? Apple still can't figure out how to update their online store without taking it offline? No, we all know that. It means Apple is going to be announcing a new product (or new website design - or MAYBE BOTH!) at MWSF! OMG, I never imagined something like this was going to happen.

    Plus Steve's family is in the audience. He's retiring/resigning from the company. Obvious now that you think about it, huh.

    got it backwards

    It's fairly amazing that at the Mac World expo keynote there was hardly a mention of, well, Macs. No mention of 10.5? No mention of desktops/laptops either in terms of sales or new products. Ok, there is Apple TV that interfaces with Macs and the iPhone that sorta/kinda is a Mac since it runs OS X (sorta?). I guess that's why they dropped Computer from Apple Computer, Inc. Amazing stuff.
