Black Friday for Mac Prices
Black Friday is a nasty name for a good thing: It's the day after Thanksgiving
when millions of American shoppers hit the malls in search of smokin' bargains.
Apple had been making noises about some sweet Black Friday dealios, so I checked
it out. The best bargain I found was $100 off its lowest-end laptop -- making
it still a hair under a grand.
As this bad economy continues, I believe Apple will have to lower its premium
prices. Kinda tough to shell out all that money for a Mac when you can't fill
your fridge with groceries.
Meanwhile, "The Simpsons" has soured on Apple, and in the last episode
spent six full minutes making
fun of the company. Since I gave up watching "The Simpsons" 10
years ago, I unfortunately missed this episode.
