Apple Store Back Soon

As I write, online Apple Stores around the world are going down. That yellow post-it is popping up, assuring eager shoppers, “We’ll be back soon.”

Why so eager? For weeks, rumors have leaked through the intertubes like lemonade spilled on a MacBook keyboard — in short, they got everywhere. There isn’t a tech news site that failed to report the imminent arrival of refreshed (and entirely new) product lines. With so much noisy consensus, could they all be wrong?

John Gruber sums up what he believes we’ll be getting;

Redesigned Plastic MacBooks, Redesigned (‘Impressive’) iMacs, Updated Minis (Including One That Ships With Mac OS X Server), the Multi-Touch Magic Mouse, and, as the Wildcard I’m-Not-Sure-I-Really-Believe-It-Myself Out-There Rumor, Maybe Even Some Sort of Mentioned-Nowhere-Else-But-in-This-Very-Headline Multi-Touch Trackpad Gadget for Desktop Macs That Apple Is Set to Release Tomorrow Morning.

Fake Steve Jobs, on the other hand, insists Gruber hasn’t a clue.

The Apple Store sometimes goes down for nothing more than simple maintenance. In fact, it was down for precisely that reason only four days ago. Only time will tell. Watch this space — we’ll keep you posted.
