Amazing! I can't imagine where it would be with an iOS interface for Apps and Safari. With a mic and front facing camera, people could have a Smart TV. The market seems content to push the Smart TV into 2012.

Apple Teases Black Friday Sale

By Olivia Oran - 11/22/11 - 01:56 PM EST


NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Apple( AAPL_) Tuesday teased consumers with a promotional image on its Web site touting a Black Friday sale.

"Mark your calendar now, and come back to the Apple Online Store the day after Thanksgiving for the special one-day event," the site reads. "You'll discover amazing iPad, iPod, and Mac gifts for everyone on your list."

Apple's discounts on its products typically aren't as steep as its competitors.

For the past several years, the company has offered $101 off the iMac, MacBook Pro, and Macbook Air, as well as reductions on the iPod Touch, Apple TV and various accessories.

Apple didn't mention any sales in its brick-and-mortar stores.

According to reports, the company could open its largest store ever in Grand Central on Friday.

Apple has said it expects revenue of $37 billion during the December-ended quarter.

The iPad is expected be a large driver of growth for Apple during the holiday season and could sell 13 million units during the quarter, according to analyst estimates, despite competition from Amazon's( AMZN_) Kindle Fire.

Shares of Apple edged up 1.9% to $375.90 in early afternoon trading on Tuesday.

The National Debt stands as $47K+ per man, woman and child. Think of Apple's $101 as the start of your contribution :-)

Hard Disk Drive Shipments to Plunge 30 Percent in Q4 Because of Thailand Floods

-----

Prices are up on Amazon about $40 from the last time I bought one.

Might be slightly good for Apple. They probably locked in supplies, meaning competitors will have to pay extra.

I've noticed the local Fry's ad flyer no longer puts an internal hard drive for sale on its front page, it always used to.

When I checked at Newegg.com, I couldn't find a 1TB drive for less than $130. I bought one for $69 about 6 months ago.

You can also really see it in STX's stock. It basically doubled in a matter of weeks this fall when the news started to hit about the flooding.

Big data reveals Mac users book pricier hotels
By Derrick Harris Nov. 22, 2011, 12:00pm PT

It appears as if Apple users’ willingness to shell out a little more cash for a premium experience doesn’t stop at computers. According to Orbitz CEO Barney Harford, his company’s data-crunching shows that Mac users also spend about $20 more a night on hotels than do Windows users. For anyone any still wondering why Hadoop is so hot right now, it’s because it helps uncover insights like this.

<snip>

Knowing what it knows, though, Harford said Orbitz eventually plans to provide Mac users with a different hotel-sorting experience than it provides their Windows counterparts.

~!~!~!~!~

If this sort of market targeting catches on, and IMHO it will, then the great divide between the classes could grow even larger. What's worse is that one's place on one side or the other might be determined intrinsically by one's ability to discern, choose and afford higher quality purchases early in their market place experiences.


It's a bit scary.

Herb
