We’ve received a lot of tips this morning in regards to Apple’s online store going offline and back online, apparently without visible changes. As our Mark Gurman scooped last night, the outage could bring us new iPhoto letter press cards, covers, calendars and more later today. Also worth noting, Apple Bitch spotted the new Returns link at the page bottom, right alongside other service links.

The link takes you to Apple’s standard Returns & Services page explaining the minutiae of product returns and your consumer rights. It’s a welcome change that adds more transparency to Apple’s dealings with online buyers as opposed to burying helpful links where nobody can spot them, like most other companies do. Mystery solved, guys, moving on…
