Apple's online store is down, which can only mean one thing: new products are launching soon.

In just a couple of short hours, Apple will be holding its iPad event in San Francisco. As it has in the past with other product launches, the company has taken its online store down to update it with the goodies it plans to unveil today.

And what might those goodies be? Apple has already made it clear it'll be showing off a new iPad, though there is some question whether it will be called the "iPad 3" or the "iPad HD." Just yesterday, The Verge reported, citing sources, that Apple will also show off a new Apple TV at the event.

Apple's online store won't be back up until the iPad 3 event is over. But if you want to find out what the company unveils before then, be sure to come back for CNET's live blog, which starts at 9:30 a.m. PT.
