iTunes Store down; Hollywood to blame

Tried to visit the iTunes Music Store lately? You can't - it's down. People all over the world who needed, dammit, needed to get that Weird Al Yankovic track to play to their girlfriend are just going to have to wait, it seems, for another two and a half hours (can this be serious?) until Steve Jobs mounts the stage in San Francisco and doesn't get down until he's unveiled • new iPods (a revised nano and bigger movie-playing iPod) • downloadable films • quite possibly, an updated Airport Express (it is two years old and hasn't seen a sniff of an update all that time) that will let you beam your downloaded film to your TV set wirelessly. (Imagine! Films sent through the air! It's like... vision at a distance! We could call it... television!) • possibly, just very possibly, a phone that also plays music. (Yes, obviously a mobile phone.)
