Now that the weather is turning rainy and colder, it'd be a really good time to catch up on some television, some films, and some gaming. Well, turns out you're in luck with Boxee in the on-deck circle, the all new Apple TV ready to drop, and possibly even Google TV setting up shop. Plus, iPads are expanding to new retail locations, Game Center is taking off big time, and we haven't even hit the holiday shopping season yet. So tuck in to some electronic goodness from your friends at Mac|Life.
It's been a while since anyone has mentioned iPad sales. It's been confirmed that they're moving out the door as fast as Apple can move them, and there's also verification that Apple's will be increasing production on the tablet in the days to come. But it's taken some time for the full brunt of the iPad's tremendous success to be understood by the computer and retail industries. It would seem that the time for some schooling has come. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn has stated that the iPad is cannibalizing upwards of 50% of all laptop sales from his company's chain of stores.
If you've had trouble obtaining your iPad from your nearest Best Buy, but they could just never seem to keep them in stock, or it just plain did not have an Apple section, then worry no more. The company announced today that they will expand iPad sales to all 1,093 nationwide locations.
Best Buy is allegedly tacking on free invisibleSHIELD 4Fix films to iPhone 4 customers complaining about iPhone 4 reception problems. The invisibleSHIELD is really only supposed to cover the front and back of the handheld, though this package also includes transparent films that you affix to your iPhone 4's anttena band. How this prevents iPhone 4 reception loss is anyone's guess.
If you sat out last Tuesday’s iPhone 4 pre-order meltdown and hoped to saunter into your local Best Buy to grab the handset come this Thursday, June 24, you may want to rethink that plan. A wealth of data has been leaked from Best Buy, including a launch day manual that outlines the big box retailer’s plans for Thursday as well as some early inventory reports.
You know it’s coming, and you know you want one. But do you know where and how to get one? Tuesday, June 15 is the official iPhone 4 pre-order date, and MacLife.com is here to give you all the details on a safe and trouble-free pre-order.
For faithful Apple fans that don't have an Apple Store nearby, Best Buy has just announced that pre-sale orders for the iPhone 4 will start tomorrow, June 15th. The ginormous brick-and-mortar store will offer the iPhone 4 on its official release date of June 24th.
And in case Best Buy isn't near you either, Walmart will also carry the iPhone 4 on its release date, though there are currently no preorder options available. The iPhone 4 will come in black and white and cost $199 for a 16GB version or $299 for the higher capacity 32GB version.
Can't make it to your local Apple or AT&T store on iPhone 4 Launch Day? Don't want to order online, and would rather have it in your hands the day of? No worries! In addition to Best Buy and Radio Shack, Walmart will also make sure you're covered as well.
Decided not to pre-order the iPad online? No Apple Store nearby? Opting to head to your local Best Buy instead? Well the company has a few tidbits for you before you decide to head out tomorrow in the bright and early (or yet tonight), to help with your experience.
