Apple’s ‘12 Days of Gifts’ promo noticeably absent this year

Bad news this year for bargain iOS app hunters: It appears that Apple has no plans to offer its "12 Days of Gifts" promotion as the year 2014 winds down. For the past six years, from December 26th to January 6th Apple offered a free download each day to iOS users, with freebies including apps, games, and songs from iTunes.

IBM: Christmas big for online shopping, iOS destroys Android again

Christmas means a lot of things to a lot of people, but one undercurrent is noticeable: shopping. Though most stores are shut for the day, we can still go online, and we’ve likely got a series of gift cards in-hand which give us license to buy.
