Apple Store goes offline, get ready to start pounding "refresh"

Apple's online store has been taken offline for "maintenance", which is better known as "putting up some super-sweet new products that are announced at WWDC". iOS 6 is pretty much a given, but it's probably too optimistic to expect an iPhone 5 being put on presale. It's a lot more likely that we'll see a new MacBook Pro announced, and with a bit of luck, a juiced-up Apple TV of some kind. This is, of course, assuming there's anything new at all; it's common practice for Apple to shut down the Apple store around WWDC time anyway.

Head on over to the Apple Store  around 1 PM EST, when the WWDC keynote kicks off and we get the liveblog train rolling.
