Apple Store Down! 2009 Special Music Event Nigh!

The Apple Store is down! (Sure, it's totally perfunctory at this point, but any great milestone before the main event, we have to celebrate it).

Not much point in asking what will be updated at this point (iPod touch much?), we'll see as soon as Apple execs hit the stage, no doubt with a hearty line of "your interwe

Yes, Palm just announced the Pixi, rocking EVDO Rev A on Sprint. We knew Palm would be announcing what's basically the Centro to the Pre's Treo -- a lower end device based on their new webOS platform.
