A fine fat Christmas Goose from iTunes

I got an unintentionally hilarious email the other day from iTunes Connect, the service that manages content on the iTunes Music (and Book) Store. At least I think it was unintentional. The slug was HOLIDAY SHUTDOWN, and the long and short of it was that the service would be unavailable from December 22 to 29 "for the winter holidays." For a week, there will be no access to sellers' only mechanism for managing their accounts, and no ability for them to deliver new content or update the old.

Because... Why, exactly? Because iTunes Connect is housed in a drafty attic workspace, managed via a set of thick, dusty ledgers and staffed by guys in green eyeshades? Or because, conversely, the massive humming banks of servers that administer iTunes' e-commerce capability need downtime at the holidays to travel, string tinsel, visit their families? If iTunes Connect isn't technologically advanced enough to run straight through the busiest sales season of the year -- Um, hey: Why not?
