apple-store-downLike a herald of old, you know when the infamous online Apple Store “We’ll be back soon.” post-it goes on the site, thing are about to get exciting.

Every time this happens we find ourselves stopping to wonder why in this modern age Apple needs to take its site off-line to update it.  Whatever the reason may be, that simple post-it note has come to be a beacon of new goodies arriving, so we don’t get too upset with it.  Yes, we know it sometimes just means the company is doing maintenance, but when it coincides with an announcement day, we all know what it really means.

Will it be the iPad 3?  The iPad HD?  Who knows.  What we do know is that a new tablet (and possibly a new Apple TV) is on the way!

Be sure to leave your speculation in the comments below!  And be sure to follow our iPad 3 live blog as well!
