Apple Web store(s) offline; rumblings of announcements build

As of Sunday morning Eastern time, reader and source reports have been coming in at a blistering pace as the online Apple Store reportedly went offline for most of the night. It came back later Sunday morning, and remained online throughout the remainder of the weekend.

Although the timing suggests it could be routine, the sheer volume of source reports and other reasons to suspect new hardware product announcements — almost certainly one or more new Macs — combined with the similarity between current speculation and long-standing rumors about new Mac Minis, price cuts, and/or a new Mac Pro….give us reason to suspect that such announcements could be imminent; if not in the next couple of days, then quite possibly before the week is out.

Australian Apple store briefly shows newer cheaper Mini and iMac

Readers may have to judge this one for themselves, but according to this screenshot sent in by a Mac OS Rumors reader:

New mini and updated iMac?

Apple briefly lowered the price of both models and set the “new” badge on both items in the store, then reverted them back to their current status and price. The price of the Mini in the picture is $649 Australian dollars, which in a rough estimate is comparable to $430 U.S dollars. If this is an unintentional mistake on Apples part but reflects future plans, it would be significantly cheaper than the current Mini which starts at $599 U.S dollars. The iMac similarly has a much lower price of $1,199 Australian dollars, comparable to around $800 U.S dollars. Read more

Update to Infinite Loop Bldg. 6 fire news…..

According to sources who returned to the scene of the fire after having left overnight shifts or other late-night work at the company the previous evening….construction to add physical networking & other datacenter/office infrastructure had been installing air conditioning units to offset heat produced by the fast growing server iron located in that part of Building 6’s IS/IT/Networking division offices had been underway for several days prior to the incident which apparently sparked the fire.

Reportedly welding operations being done to support the heavyweight air conditioning hardware and ductwork somehow resulted in a fast-growing fire which escaped notice until it was too late for the welders or other construction personnel to put out directly.

Stay tuned for further developments as reports come in, and for a resumption of normal daily updates with some really hot dirt coming your way shortly….. Read more
