Apple store down, in a good way
3 May 2011 | 0
Users trying to access Apple’s online store this morning were disappointed to receive a message saying the store was unavailable, pending an ‘update’. The outage is likely related to rumours of a refresh for Apple’s iMac range and the launch of a new cloud computing service. An annoucement about Apple’s new iteration of OS X, Lion, could also be on the cards.
Speculation about the directon of Apple’s cloud services have been rife since the shelving of the subscription-based MobileMe brand in February. It is expected the company will introduce a two-tier service for consumers and businesses.Frontrunners for what the service will be called are iCloud and Castle.
All should be revealed later today,
