Are you ready for Black Friday? Apple sure is, with the company announcing on Tuesday that “every gift list has its day” -- and that day is this Friday, when the company’s online store offers special one-day only discounts.
We’ve got three words for you today: Short work week! For our U.S. readers, Thanksgiving is this Thursday and many folks have an extra day off on Friday, which means you’ll have a longer weekend at play than you will working three days this week. (Our apologies to those of you who don’t get to enjoy that scenario. We feel your pain.) But there’s still plenty of news floating around the interwebs, and we’ve collected some of the best stuff for you to read on this fine Monday, November 21, 2011.
If you're heading out for Black Friday shopping today, our condolences. Here are some apps to help you stay sane and make it back home in one piece. And hey! At least you'll be all finished with your Christmas shopping by the end of the day, right?
Black Friday is finally here, and with it comes the hopes and dreams of retailers everywhere to turn a profit for the year. Apple Inc. doesn’t have to worry about that -- they’re already sitting on a mountain of cash -- but that doesn’t mean they can’t get into the spirit of the shopping season just the same.
As we all wait to see what kind of Black Friday deals Apple.com will post in the morning, resellers of the company’s products are already doing some deep discounting of their own in advance of Cupertino.
That collective inhale you heard this week was the breath of thousands of U.S. retailers preparing for Friday, November 26 -- better known to shoppers as Black Friday. Here’s how to make the best of the day, as well as its online equivalent, Cyber Monday, on November 29.
Black Friday is traditionally the day many retailers rely on to get “into the black” (i.e., profit) for the year. One company that doesn’t have to worry about that is Apple, although they still get into the spirit of things anyway.
Last week Apple fans went crazy over the fact that TJ Max (and it's sister chain Marshalls) announced they would be selling the 16GB Wi-Fi only iPad for only $399.99. With an almost $100 departure from Apple's pricing, one person turned to Steve Jobs' email address for some answers. What he replied, however, is somewhat surprising.
Gamblers can find just about any reason to indulge in their favorite temptation, and with the Black Friday shopping season only a week away, odds makers are already placing their own bets on who will be hot this shopping season.
In what alternate universe would you have to live to hear this: “Honey, next time you’re down at TJ Maxx getting a great deal on clothes, pick me up one of those iPads I keep hearing about.” As it turns out, it’s not only a reality, but it could be happening in this very universe.
