Apple teases Black Friday online and in-store participation
We're not told exactly what to expect, though the image itself showcases an iPad, a SmartCover and a pair of Apple's EarPod, tied into the shape of a bow. These will all most likely end up for sale come Friday, and we're fairly sure that the folks from the land Down Under won't be alone in their good fortunes.
As you can see, Apple will be holding sales both online and in its brick & mortar retail locations, with the former getting free shipping as a bonus. If you squint real hard and give the fine pint a read, it'll dawn on you that usual Black Friday terms apply – prices, for one, are only valid from 12:01am to 11:59pm on November 29. Moreover, Black Friday-specific deals can't be paired with other, existing offers, not to mention that the promotional prices are only applicable for the stock at hand.

They should ship all iPads with EarPods. It takes less than $1.00 to manufacture yet they can't include it...

$1 times 14 million iPads sold (last quarter) is $14 million. That is why they can't include it.

They already raped you for 100 billion in pure liquid cash. They can spare 14 million to buy some lube for their customers.....
Especially after the bully Apple took Samsung's lunch money to a tune of 1 billion and principle Obama was a poor enough principle to let it happen. In fact, he helped the bully get away with something by vetoing it.

I don't understand, for such a design driven company, that's a huge omission...thats what I don't like about apple, they're very one-sided.

Why is it an omission? Did you get free EarPods or equivalent when you last purchased a laptop?

It's that time of the year again where Apple fans can save 1% off their choice of an Iphone, Ipad, or Mac. If they go with a Macbook they can save like, $10!
Aren't they so generous?

$200 off the new MacBook Pros.
$150 off the new MacBook Airs.
$100 off the AT&T's iPhone 5S.
Get your facts straight.

Lowering your prices from 50% higher than your competitors to only 45% higher than your competitors for one day isn't generous at all any way you want to slice it. There is a fact for for you. Lol
