Dunk it in! This morning over at Android Community (or was it late last night?) Vincent reviewed the Motorola Defy - a rugged piece of machinery that'll get wet and keep on clickin. There's some 3D modeling and studying of flying snakes on SlashGear, a hands on with the Marvell Android tablet, and a gaming computer employing cooled liquid to get it down to some sub-zero temps. And then, and then! Apple announces they're going to have some Black Friday sales at their stores. Holy holiday ham! What a strange day it's turning out to be here on SlashGear Morning Wrap-up!
First there's Thanksgiving, with the turkey and the pumpkin pie, and then there's the frantic sales shopping on Black Friday. Many retailers have already kicked off their Black Friday deals - Amazon is seeing sub-1s sell-outs, in fact - but Apple is sticking with shopping tradition and teasing its November 26 "one-day Apple shopping event".
With Black Friday just around the corner, and plenty of deals and exclusives beginning to pop up here and there, Nintendo is looking to spice things up with a pair of brand new colored DSi portable gaming consoles. The new consoles are a Black Friday exclusive, and they're being announced by Nintendo directly, which means the new mobile consoles should be arriving in plenty of retail locations.
I am a geek that likes to spend money. I'm not interested in standing around trying on clothes or waiting for the wife to try on 156 items at once and then not buy anything. I am interested in shopping for cool toys, gadgets, and games though. If you like to shop and are brave enough to hit the stores on Black Friday and want to use some tech to make your shopping easier we have a new app for you.
Black Friday has come and gone leaving in its wake disappointed shoppers who were unable to get the best deals on the gadgets they wanted thanks to limited numbers in stores. Pricegrabber has unveiled some statistics for online shopping on Black Friday and the most desired products including the Wii and iPod touch.
It's the day after Thanksgiving and that means Black Friday sales in the US. We're already hearing that parking spaces outside US malls are full up - and it's only just gone 4am on the east coast - so if it's cut-price Apple tech you're after then why not do your shopping online? As is somewhat traditional by now, Apple have discounts across various parts of their store today: save just over $100 on a new iMac, for instance, or the same off a MacBook Pro.
It's hard to miss the fact that this Friday is Black Friday. The day many people rush out to stores when they would normally still be asleep to get deals on items of all sorts for Christmas gifts. Many of the best deals are on technology items like notebooks, HDTVs, and Blu-ray players. Verizon Wireless has announced a killer deal on a netbook with mobile broadband coverage.
