Some Apple Stores to open at 8AM on Black Friday
According to those with knowledge of Apple's plans, some of the the tech giant's brick and mortar stores will open on 8AM on the morning of Black Friday. Last year, Apple's Black Friday promotions began at 12:01AM November 29th, and ran for the entire day. In 2011, the stores were open at 4AM. A survey of Apple Stores from sea to shining sea, reveals that many plan on opening between 8AM and 9AM this year, while several locations plan on opening at regular business hours. Black Friday is on November 28th this year.

In the coming weeks, Apple will be posting the complete list of Black Friday store openings on the Apple Retail web site. Last year, Apple gave out different rewards to Black Friday shoppers, depending on the country. In 2013, stores in the U.S. and Australia handed out gift cards to early bird holiday shoppers. Those who visited European based Apple Stores for Black Friday last year, received discounts on hardware.

Apple traditionally announces its Black Friday promotions on the morning of the event. The "shopping holiday" kicks off the Christmas and Chanukah shopping season, culminating on Christmas Eve.

Aside from that, I wish the best to you and yours. I send no ill will your way whatsoever, and I hope all is going well for you in all things and all pursuits. I hope that post doesn't come off as an attack, wasn't my intention. This is a site for people who love (or are merely curious about) tech. It'd be a shame for that commonality to go to waste for frivolous reasons. That being said. I'll be buying an iPad Air 2 this year. I hope that they're open at midnight like last year though, for convenience sake.

I've seen you on multiple articles doing this time and again, and honestly you're a bit weird. It's odd you feel the need to interject personal details into half of your comments that're absolutely irrelevant to the subject of any given article. It's almost like you feel the compulsive need to make everything a d**k measuring contest, which is especially unusual considering your'e a grown man conversing with "fat introverted teenage fanboys" by your own definition of the sites readership. What you get by competing with (and bragging to) people you perceive to be younger and less well off than you is something I don't understand. It'd be like driving up to a high-school and laughing at the students because they haven't achieved your "greatness", by your own logic. Usually, when it comes to people like you the average person assumes one of three things. Either 1.) You're a massive liar. 2.) You're legitimately self absorbed and vain. OR 3.) That your self aggrandizement is connected to a brittle ego that needs constant nourishment to survive afloat whatever rotting foundation it was constructed on. I'm assuming you have some rebuttal about "not caring what anyone says, including me" but if that was the case there'd literally be no logical reason to randomly throw factoids about your life out there. So there's that. Attempting to find and connect with people with similar interests by making probing statements about yourself is one thing. Making claims at random just for the sake of letting everyone else know is another thing altogether. We get it, you're a happy man. That's fantastic, and you should be proud of whatever achievement you've supposedly managed to accrue. But bringing up your life every five seconds without being prompted to do so by either subject matter or a direct inquiry is a horrible trait to have. Think about it this way. If your (boss, co-worker, whatever) simply approached your desk and started telling you about his life... How long would it take until you decided he was either creepy, full of himself, or someone you simply didn't want to talk to? I'm not exactly religious but pride has negative connotations nearly across the board from all holy texts for similar reasons. But in the real world, it's simply a source of aggravation (or amusement at the speaker's expense) for everyone else. I personally fall into the latter camp, but that's neither here nor there (see, random factoids). So please, if someone actually asks about you then feel free to speak about your life and greatness at length. But until then, randomly volunteering information about yourself kind of makes you look like a loser. So, for the sake of this site. For the sake of everyone who is physically fit. For the sake of all African Americans. For the sake of everyone with a decent life, an attractive romantic interest and things going their way.Please keep quiet about your life unless someone asks or it's relevant to the topic. Adonis**

I'm vain, very vain, super vain. When I'm attacked, I simply attack back. Don't single out what you see me post, look at what I'm responding to also. Now back to me, I'm vain as can be, just look at my profile pic, I'm friggin gorgeous. Nice post BTW, hella long and pointless, but nice. For the sake of all African Americans lol, you gotta be kidding me LMAOOOOO!!! Now that was funny! This post should get you hella green thumbs, after all it is a rant about the Jed.

"Whenever I think Apple is being attacked, I simply attack back. I can't stop. They need to understand that attacking Apple is attacking me. So I just keep going until I've beaten those motherf**kers to a pulp." FTFY.

Yes but why didn't you engage him? He brought up some interesting points and didn't attack you at all. And let's be honest bro, you do brag without being provoked or attacked sometimes. Oh well, this would have been an epic thread.

38. TerryTerius unregistered

Cool, you're not hideous congratulations. I'm actual model and i'm not so hung up on looks, and part of my income depends on it. Well, a much lesser part than everything else I do; but part of it nonetheless. But i'm digressing, the "point" of my post was to query about your ego. Unless you're functioning off the theory that your ego is pointless (which i'd agree with) then that was the obvious takeaway. All i'm asking is this. What is it you get from bragging to people that by your own admission do not care about? I'm genuinely curious about that. It's fine to have a love for Apple or whatever other tech you like, that's a non-issue as far as i'm concerned. Honestly, brand loyalty isn't the worst trait a human can have and people become apoplectic about it for the stupidest reasons. But yeah, what is it that you extract from boasting? Is it an ego-rush? An influx of one-upsmanship? I'm asking you out of honest curiosity. I could care less about "green thumbs" and attention online. I have an life that keeps me busy from roughly 9 AM - 11 PM every day. Not to insinuate that you don't, but attention on the internet is far removed from the realm of my daily concerns. What motivates me to ask you is genuine curiosity. I was a psych major, can't help it. Maybe it's because you're like me enough that I wonder why you're so different. I have absolutely every reason to be a braggart, but i'm not. And, though the primal less-evolved part of me would love to play top trumps with you (as Top Gear calls it) it'd be a pointless exercise. Anywho, care to enlighten me Mr Jedii? Or of course you can refuse. The choice is wholly yours. Look at it this way, i'm giving you a platform to discuss yourself. Should be irresistible to your ego.

Go back and read post 20, see how short I kept it? Remember we can come here, and say anything, so your long drawn out rants mean zilch Mr. Adonis. I'll be short: when I'm attacked, I'll attack back. Now kindly see post 20.

40. TerryTerius unregistered

Right, i'm sorry I didn't realize reading was a weakness of yours. I'll keep it short. You're right, we can post whatever we like. Which means I have equivalent right to post whatever I wish about you as well and ask whatever questions I please. You can defend yourself, that's perfectly fine and I never said you shouldn't. We you get from bragging about yourself to people you see as beneath you, as per have liberties in this country, and that is certainly one of them. I asked you what your own admission Mr Jedii. Not one time did I question your right to defend yourself from attack. Not once. I asked about your ego. And if you don't want to answer me, that's fine too. You're carry no obligation to do so in any way shape or form. (shrug) simple curiosity. Aside from that, I don't think you know the difference between a frothing rant and thought out response. I've been nothing but cordial to you. A little condescending maybe, unintentionally; but cordial. Shouldn't your self admitted vanity relish the chance to talk about yourself?

Getting shorter, which is a good thing. Long rants don't get much attention here. Anyway, for that post, post 20 should suffice.

42. TerryTerius unregistered

Ah, I see how this works. You make grandiose statements and If questioned you scurry off and refuse to defend your own positions like a child. Disappointing. I presumed you to have the integrity to match your braggadocios nature. Oh well, I won't bore myself with you anymore then. I guess you really are nothing more than a boring chunk of muscle mass, attitude and false concepts about himself. Have a good day Mr. Jedii. I bid you and yours all the best ^_^ Provide obligatory dismissive comments below if you'd like, but I wish you no ill will. I just hope you prove to be more interesting in the future.

Your disputing with a immature adult. That's all he does. Bla, bla, bla..... "No wonder he gets attacked by almost everyone"

The only reason I'm bla bla bla to you, is because I'm an iOS user that you can't silence, and that frustrates you. If I were an android fanboy, you'd be green thumbing me all day everyday. Oh, and I love the attacks, keep em coming. "Your" should be You're, and "a" should be an. You post like Arte 8800...hmmmmm.
