With the Christmas holiday now less than a week away, Apple has pushed out the latest in their iPhone 4S television ads -- and it features an iconic character getting through a busy night with the help of the iconic handset’s latest “wow” feature.

Gartner projects that tablet sales will reach almost 64 million worldwide in 2011, which is a huge jump from the 18 million in 2010. By 2014, the report expects sales of 326 million units.
