Elgato Thunderbolt Dock arrives to be Apple’s one hub

There’s a new Elgato device being released this month with the ways and means to connect several of your devices in an above-average easy way. This is the Elgato Thunderbolt Dock, and it’s made with an aluminum that’s extremely similar to that of several Apple products. It’ll be carried, too, by Apple stores later this month.

iPad 2 said to be discontinued: non-Retina nearly gone

iPad 2 said to be discontinued: non-Retina nearly gone

Apple's second-generation iPad (and the last to sport a number) appears to be ramping down this season. After almost three years of being sported and sold by Apple, the company has apparently seen the sales of the iPad 2 go down to a point where they're ready to retire it. At the moment this iPad is the second least-costly iPad available at Apple, beaten only by the 16GB Wi-fi iPad mini (without Retina display).

Japan’s Apple Store “New Years Lucky Bags” include one Mac Pro

Japan’s Apple Store “New Years Lucky Bags” include one Mac Pro

It would appear that the Japanese Apple Store team has upped the ante this year for their New Year Lucky Bag event, bringing on one 2013 Mac Pro for some lucky buyer. Since there’s only a single Mac Pro out there to be had, only a single customer will receive it - otherwise they’ll be getting a set of devices from the Apple Stores in Japan that are otherwise overstocked or for whatever reason an OK thing to give away. There’s also a set of devices that will be added to a limited number of bags.

Samsung hires Apple Store designer for competing retail locations

There's little doubt that Samsung is growing in more than just smartphone sales, and it would appear that the company is setting out to prove it. A recent tipped hire of a former Apple Store designer suggests that the company is ready to bring on the heat to full-fledged retail stores, likely in a fashion not unlike the Microsoft Store wave that hit over the past several years.

iPad Air in stores with price-matching (if you know where to look)

iPad Air in stores with price-matching (if you know where to look)

The Apple iPad Air goes on sale online and in-stores today, with not just the Apple Store itself sending the machine out to the public. This device is the newest in a line of iPad devices having been released over the past several years, this time bringing on the thinnest and smallest physical footprint the larger of the two iPad models has ever had. This device will continue to be sold alongside the iPad mini and soon the iPad mini with Retina display - likely by the end of this month for the latter.

iPad Air release puts Apple Store down as Retina mini seeks date

iPad Air release puts Apple Store down as Retina mini seeks date

The iPad Air is coming to the Apple Store this Friday, and ahead of its launch some countries are finding the online iteration of the retail giant going down - with the prerequisite "we'll be right back." Meanwhile the Retina iPad mini's release date - while not officially noted by Apple yet as such - has been tipped by a Target retail website. This website suggests that November 21st, 2013 will be the day the Retina iPad mini arrives - right in time for holiday shoppers.

iPhone 5s shipping cut to 2-3 weeks, Gold to November

iPhone 5s shipping cut to 2-3 weeks, Gold to November

It would appear that Apple's supply of the iPhone 5s has been safely restored to near-normal as the "October" shipping time has been reduced to 2-3 weeks. Now that we're inside October, it certainly wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to stick with the October shipping time note, but up on Apple.com you'll now find no change-over to November. This means good things for those users looking for the Gold iPhone 5s specifically, as the device has been sold out and many locations across the nation for the last couple of weeks.
