Today we focus on the little guys. The smaller end of the market of Apple products. The entry level. If you've been trying to convince a friend or relative to make the switch, these lower priced options might just be the ticket to helping convince them what you've known all along.
Are you doing anything really cool with your iPad, such as using it as a new set of eyes for hands-on surgery or finding that extra edge for speed skating? If so, you could be featured in a new section of Apple's website dedicated to real-life tales of iPad.
The big news of the week certainly had to be Apple's surprise availability of the iPad mini with Retina Display, a pixel-powered refresh of last year's small tablet that most pundits didn't expect to see until later in the month. But Thursday wound up being a fairly busy day where software was concerned, so we've rounded up a handful of the coolest news items and now present them to you in easily digestible form to close out this mid-November week!

[UPDATED] There may have been new Macs, apps and the surprise announcement that OS X Mavericks would be free, but the iPads were definitely the star of Apple's special Oct. 22 event. There weren't a ton of new features to speak of, but Apple still managed to make all of our old iPads and iPad minis feel obsolete. Here's a look at everything that's changed.
Rumors and leaks are heating up and you know what that means: pure speculation! Fakes! A slowly growing fever pitch of excitement as we get closer and closer to the big day.
