We're officially T-minus two weeks and counting before the annual mayhem known as Black Friday, which officially kicks off the holiday shopping season. Our Friday Morning Report has a gadget worthy of stuffing into any Mac or iOS user's stocking this year, Apple's official statement on the latest iOS vulnerability, and a rare Thunderbolt Display firmware update to top it all off. The weekend is (almost) here, so why not click ahead...?
With the release of the two latest iPhone models, case makers have to be happy that not only can they continue to sell out their existing stock for another year, but they have something new to slightly tweak current designs to work with. And if you have an older-model 30-pin iPhone, accessory makers are starting to clear out their stock of merchandise, which is good news for you if you like sales. Plus, we still have a healthy selection of the best refurbs on the block, so dive right in.
This week feels like a Back to the Mac kind of week as our deals are super hopping for those of you bound by desks and laps. Never fear, we still have great iOS price cuts, but if you're in the model for upgrading your main machine, this week we're playing your song. Meanwhile, there's this --->

We're going a little bigger this time around on our refurbs, plus we've got some sweet accessories for your mobile devices. So come on inside where the living--and the shopping--is easy.
It's one week to the big love day holiday and if you are stumped for a gift idea, we have a few. Sure, it's not chocolates that make you fat, or flowers that die, or lingerie that, well, that's always a winner in our book. But if you're telling us your love won't adore these sweet gifts and go mad for the discounts, well, then you're crazy.
So we can all settle down now that the new year is upon us and we can all get right back up to excited because CES is coming up next week, which means ever so much gear and so many new apps that will make your life simpler, funner, happier, more productive. At any rate, until the release date of those devices, we'll have to content ourselves with these sweet deals.
