App Store customers went through a rather frustrating ordeal over the weekend, as Apple’s (AAPL) online app market was plagued by a bug that blocked any attempts to buy apps. MacRumors reported on Sunday that the bug, which affected both iOS and Mac users, continuously asked users to accept updated Terms and Conditions, thus preventing them from actually purchasing any apps. MacRumors says that Apple corrected the problem within hours of noticing it but didn’t provide any comment about what caused the issue.
