Bringing the house down!

Apparently something is happening over at Apple, according to reports they will be back soon. They have brought the store offline, and everyone is getting excited about what could be announced shortly by Steve Jobs. It won't be long until Twitter follows as they have been throwing everything over board trying to escape the Black Pearl that is the WWDC. We are now down to Twitter Lite as they hold on to try and keep the site running but surely it's only a matter of time until we see the 'Fail Whale'. With just over 90 minutes to go the Internet is dominated by WWDC 2008 discussion and I'm following their anticipation over on FriendFeed. I will update later with all the goodness...

Update 16:40;

Receiving the '...over capacity' message on Twitter now, hopefully they will have the site back up shortly. I read that they were expecting ten times the usual days traffic today, that is a significant peak and will be interesting to see stats from sites tomorrow after everything has calmed down!
