Apple posts Black Friday teaser ad

updated 01:40 am EST, Tue November 23, 2010

Friday, Nov. 26th is the big day

Apple has posted the first teaser for its annual Black Friday sale on its website, inviting shoppers to "come back to the Apple Online Store this Friday for a special one-day holiday shopping event." The ad specifically mentions iPad, iPod and Mac gifts, and suggest buyers "mark their calendars" and browse the store to get ideas.

Last year, Apple offered modest $101 discounts on MacBook Pros and iMacs, and a $31 discount on iPod Touches. With the still-top-selling iPad, the fourth-generation iPod Touch, the revamped Apple TV and the iPhone 4 -- all "refreshed" with new abilities via the release of iOS 4.2/4.1 earlier today -- and recently-updated iPod players, Apple's Christmas lineup looks to dominate holiday wish lists this year regardless of what the Black Friday sale holds.

Apple is also offering again this year free engraving on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch gifts.

    Main Street Merchant

    Worked at J C Penney once in the day. I always admired that he would not allow markdowns or markdown advertising. "It was worth what it was priced at" he said. Of course once the bean counters took over, that all went away as the main street merchant soon did. Mr. Penney knew the meaning of "sale." There was no such thing with today's meaning in his stores. What shams for foolish people and I am glad that Apple does little of it.

    There will be items on 'sale', but most will be accessories.

    And why, exactly, should Apple even put stuff on sale? What, they're having a hard time selling iPads, iPhones, Macs?
