Apple Online Store Down -- New iMacs, Mac Minis, MacBooks, Multi-touch Mice/Trackpads On the Way?!

Yes, the Apple Online Store is DOWN! Following up yesterday's Daring Fireball of rumors, this is what we might just see soon:

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

Or it could just be routine maintenance. Shug. Fingers crossed for the good stuff!

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

  • Hmm. Odd that they wouldn't announce the "iTablet" ... Even the " magic mouse " which is suppose to take from their touch screen products.
    I think all we are gonna get is mac refresh and the mouse.

  • Whats the thinking behind a multi-touch mouse?
  • I always get a kick out of the fact that they have to down the whole store every time they need to update it.
  • A new iSuperman
  • exciting, cant wait to see what their like ..
  • I picked up the Bamboo Touch on Sunday at the Apple Store, which is for all intents and purposes, a larger multi-touch mouse and it's amazing. If you like using the trackpad on the new Macbooks, you'll like this. It takes a bit of practice but this multi-touch thing is becoming second nature to me now after owning MB's and iPhones.
    Now I wonder what Apple will do to top it?
  • Were finally getting google voice, yah :-)
  • Nothing new. Just a glitch in their site when conveying some algorithms for false malipulations of HTML.
