Apple Store is Down! Snow Leopard Commeth...?

Um... it's not Tuesday, Apple's traditional update day. It's not even Wednesday, September 9th, rumored occasion for Apple's next annual Music Event for iTunes and the iPod (i.e. third gen iPod touch!). Yet, here we are, wee early hours of Monday morning (Cupertino time) and the Apple Store is down!

Those hoping it's for the iTablet, well, they probably have months of disappointment ahead. Most widespread guesses at this point are Snow Leopard, which likely has only a tangential connection to the iPhone, and even then only for Mac users.

The Apple Store should be back up soon enough, so in the meantime grab your favorite casual game, or just ponder what would be like if they took down the entire store every time there was an update...
