Apple Online Store Down! US iPad Pre-Orders Imminent! International... iWhat Now?

The US Apple Online Store is down in advance today's US iPad pre-order kick off. It should be back up by 5:30am Pacific, 8:30am Eastern so shoppers around the country can nab themselves a magical new iPad for delivery or pick-up on April 3. We'll post the direct link as soon as it's live.

Now Apple Online Stores in other countries like Canada and the UK... well we're not sure why they're down since they're not getting iPad pre-orders (or iPads until "late April") so keep your eyes peeled and let us know what they come back with... if anything.

TiPb Apps 4.5: Pool Pro Online 3 for iPhone (GDC 2010)

TiPb Apps 4.5: Pool Pro Online 3 for iPhone (GDC 2010)

Live from GDC 2010, Rene talks with Jonathan Kromrey, General Manager of Apple Games at Namco about Pool Pro Online 3 [$4.99 - iTunes link] for iPhone and iPod touch... and coming to the iPad as well!

Namco's Apple group, known as Order of Magnitude, started with the iPhone version but since much of the game runs server side, and they've got high resolution art for the PC and Mac versions, moving it over to the iPad is something they can do very quickly. (It will also allow them to bring it to Android -- already in beta -- and other platforms). Due to the server-side nature of the game, you can also play it across platforms with your settings and customizations linked to your username. That means if you play on the iPhone now, when you get the iPad you can log in and just keep playing.

Multiplayer is supported over Wi-Fi and bluetooth and you can chat (i.e. trash-talk) in any language supported by the iPhone via their Unite SDK, the same system that allows cross-platform challenges to be sent and received. (And you can wager with virtual cash to make it a little more interesting).

We've been promised this kind of multi-player, multi-platform gaming for a long time now but Namco looks like they're delivering. The performance and real-time rendering are slick and swift and the controls and customization are precise and robust.

Check out the video below, and if you're playing Pool Pro Online 3 let us know how you're liking it!

Quick App Updates: Tweetie, Loopt, Foursquare, Flickr -- Including iPhone 3.2 Compatibility(!)

Quick App Updates: Tweetie, Loopt, Foursquare, Flickr -- Including iPhone 3.2 Compatibility(!)

Tapped on App Store and what did I see? Updates for Tweetie, Loopt, Foursquare, and Flickr -- and a couple of those say iPhone OS 3.2 (aka iPad) right there in the What's New listing. (Yeah, that doesn't mean 3.2 is coming to the iPhone or these are 1024x768 versions, likely just that they're built using that SDK for maximum blackboxing on the iPad).

Tweetie [$2.99 - iTunes link] has just hit version 2.1.1 and brings iPhone OS 3.2 compatibility(!), Foursquare (4sq.com) integration, Vodpod video uploads, Post 'message' parameter to TwitPic, and Instapaper Mobilizer. See our previous Tweetie coverage for more on the app.

TiPb After Dark: SinSearch Brings Bad Things to Your iPhone

SinSearch [$1.99 (sale is over!) - iTunes link] is a very bad iPhone app. Not bad as in badly done by any means -- bad as in it helps you find things that are bad for your health, bad for your wallet, and/or bad for any chance at a career in public office should they be discovered. (Which means, of course, it should be wildly popular):

Apple iPad Orders Start Tomorrow 5:30am PT, 8:30am ET, 1:30pm GT

TUAW played hero today, riding to the rescue of would-be iPad pre-orderers everywhere with firm news from Apple PR of just when exactly those iPad pre-orders would start:

"Customers can pre-order online at apple.com at 5:30am Pacific time on Friday, March 12."

So that's 5:30am PT, 8:30am ET, 1:30pm GT. Of course, the Apple Online Store might go down first, and who knows what delays might spring up between now and then, but for what it's worth that's currently go time.

So now the question remains: who's placing an order?!

iMaxi Maxi Pad iPad Case from Etsy

iMaxi Maxi Pad iPad Case from Etsy

You knew with a name like the iPad, the jokes they would follow but Hiphandmaids Etsy takes it to a new level.

They have developed a real, usable case which is in the form of a feminine napkin -- and yes it has wings. Etsy is selling these "cases" for $30.00 US for the month of March as a promotion.

Here is how Etsy describes the case on their website:

With its durable vinyl outer layer and plush, quilted-cotton sleeve, the iMaxi helps keep your iPad clean and dry. Plus, the iMaxi's Velcro-latched, advanced wing design wraps snugly around your device, so your iPad always stays where it should. Best of all, it shields it from all those unsightly and embarrassing data leaks that would make any motherboard worry!

Each handmade iMaxi can be easily customized to fit your active lifestyle. Please view other listings for different color options including our "lived in" red thread interior. If you don’t see a color you like, just ask!

So if I bought one for Rene, which should I get, white or lived in ?

A couple more pics after the break!
