The online Apple Store has shuttered its doors for the time being.
As Apple devotees wait breathlessly for news of the latest version of the iPad, a cheerful yellow sticky note attached to Apple’s online store reads, “We’ll be back soon!” And an additional note on the site reads: “We are busy updating the store for you and will be back shortly.”
Those who follow Apple closely know the company shuts down its store whenever it is about to announce a new product.
Rumors on the Internet have long predicted Apple on Wednesday will announce a new iPad -- HD. As of this writing, the company has just unveiled updates to its box top Apple TV.
We can’t help but feel a little sorry for normal, non-Apple obsessed people, who may be very confused why they can’t get online and order their 12-year-old an iTouch for his birthday.
