Apple Store Down Ahead of iPad mini Announcement

Apple Store is Down - 2012

As has become a tradition on the day of an Apple media event, the Apple Store is currently offline as we await the debut of the iPad mini. We may also be seeing new iMacs, Mac minis and the introduction of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, so be prepared for a lot of new items.

In one of the most baffling things about Apple, we will never understand why in 2012 it feels it has to take its online store completely offline during a media event. Is it to build up even more anticipation? Is it truly a technical issue? Who knows. What we do know is, it has happened, and the iPad mini is sure to be there when it comes back up after the event.
