Amazon to offer Kindle 2 for $89 on Black Friday? Yesterday biggest Kindle sales day ever
November 24, 2010 | 7:43 am

kindle-ww-slate-final-110509._SX320_SY240_CR0,0,0,0_V226589088_.png.jpegFrom an email I got from It seems that Amazon will offer the Kindle 2 for only $89 on Black Friday... We couldn't find official word yet, but that's the talk on the Kindle fan page on Amazon. The Kindle 2 is still a great e-reader with a 6" E Ink display, 3G wireless and 2GB of memory. In related news, Amazon says that yesterday was the biggest sales day ever for Kindle devices. Seems that the iPad and other tablets are not hurting e-reader sales after all, at least for now....

Apple teases Black Friday savings on Mac, iPad, iPod products
November 23, 2010 | 2:08 pm

PC Magazine reports that Apple is having another 1-day Black Friday event. The blurb on Apple’s site is not very specific, but does promise “dozens of great iPad, iPod, and Mac gifts for everyone on your list.” Last year’s sale included discounts on iMacs and MacBook Pros, and $21 to $41 markdowns on the iPod Touch. The iPad wasn’t around last year, but may well get similar markdowns this year—especially given that Apple will want to clear out inventory to make room for its next-generation launch next year. (I wonder if Apple took this season into consideration when it...

TJ Maxx selling 16GB iPad for $100 off
November 19, 2010 | 5:01 am

12bac58e-dab6-4c82-abfc-7e1a8b8ef9b9Our sister blog Appletell spotted an Engadget story pointing out that select TJ Maxx stores are carrying the 16 GB wifi iPad for $399—$100 off the list price of $499. That’s not “carrying it on Black Friday,” that’s carrying it now. If you’re interested and want to snag one, probably best get there as soon as you see this story; at a price like that, it’s doubtful they’ll stick around long. Of course, given that it is probably only 4 months or so until the next generation of iPad comes out, it is possible you might rather wait for...

black-friday-comic-2It appears this is going to be the Christmas (or at least the Black Friday) of the $99 e-reader.

You can find more here. ___________________________________________ EbookNewser is reporting that the long awaited iPad iOS 4.2 software update has been delayed till next week. Evidently there was a problem with the WiFi performance of the previous Gold Master and it had to be recalled for more tweaking. I've been on tenterhooks waiting for it. I need multi-tasking. ...

Will we find an iPad 2 under the Christmas tree?
September 11, 2010 | 1:54 am

ipad1[1] AppleInsider reports that someone with knowledge of Apple’s future plans has leaked to them that a version of the iPad with a FaceTime camera is already in “advanced testing stages.” Further, AppleInsider expects that Apple will be releasing the device in time for the holiday season. While this would represent a considerable shortening of the traditional about-12-month product cycle for Apple devices—the iPad was only released back in April—it would give Apple FaceTime capability across all its mobile product lines, giving it the head start it needs to ward off compatible tablet competitors before opening the FaceTime standard...
