apple website down todayWhy is the Apple website down?!

It appears the Apple website is down today after the launch of the iPhone 5.  Could this be from the amount of traffic that came from the recent release or did a hacker plan this as the perfect day to strike?

Here’s the message on their website:

Why do you think Apple’s website is not working?
