If you're in the market for a deal on an Apple Certified Refurbished unlocked iPhone 5 complete with a one-year warranty, look no further than the Factory Outlet eBay Store, where deals can be had for as little as $449.
It's not quite as useful as the Apple Store inventory scraper Cupertino just shut down, but if you're in the market for an iPad mini with Retina Display, a web tool lurking secretly within Seaturtle.org might just do the trick.
Well, that was fun while it lasted: The developer of an inventory tracking website for Apple's latest devices has been slapped with a Digital Millennium Copyright Act takedown notice from the overlords in Cupertino.
So how was everyone's first weekend with the iPad Air? We managed to place our online order in the wee hours of Friday morning for in-store pickup later the same day, and our local Apple retail store apparently only had a handful of folks lining up to get theirs when the doors opened. Were you among the first to buy one this past weekend? If so, chime in with your thoughts on Apple's latest tablet in the comments below.
Never mind the fact that the iPhone 5s is still hard to find for many Americans -- the show must go on, and Apple has a schedule to keep, starting on Oct. 25 when the latest handsets touch down in more than 25 new countries.
It looks like all those folks who've been camping out for the iPhone 5s might have the right idea, after all. Based on reports from numerous sources, the iPhone 5s appears to be suffering from limited inventory ahead of its launch. It's certainly believable, as even this morning reports were coming in that iPhone 5s preorders in China had depleted the available stock not long after they became available.
Apple issued a press release to remind the world that there are new iPhones arriving this Friday, while the latest flagship iPhone 5s appears to have sold out almost immediately after preorders launch early in China.
