Apple announces Black Friday sales

Apple is again joining the Black Friday shopping frenzy and announced a one-day shopping event for this Friday, November 23. You can take advantage of the sales in the Apple Retail Stores, in their online store, or via the Apple Store app on your device. There's no word on what will be on sale, and you probably won't be able to find out until Friday. The sale begins at midnight PST. If I recall correctly, last year they offered small discounts on a wide range of computers and devices. So if you've been planning to make a purchase, Friday would be a good day to do it. Any item you buy in the online store will be eligible for free shipping. The Apple Retail Stores will have extended hours on Friday.
