Apple Black Friday one-day sale kicks off: $101 off an iMac or MBP

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.

Apple report latest finances: Mac sales & margins up, iPod touch sales double

Apple have announced their fiscal Q4 2009 financial results, and it’s been another successful three months for the company.  Anybody suggesting that Apple’s tactics of selling relatively few expensive devices (rather than many cheap ones) will have some explaining to do in the face of these latest figures: Mac sales are up around 17-percent from the same period one year ago, while gross margin is up 36.6-percent.  That’s helped the company reach $9.87bn in revenue, of which $1.67bn is profit (compared to $1.14bn profit in Q4 2008).

iPod nano 5G camera falls foul of gym blacklists

Apple’s iPod nano 5G has impressed plenty of reviewers (and will likely find favor with even more buyers, too) but gym owners are less enamored.  With the arrival of the nano’s video camera, the PMP has found itself on the blacklist for some gym changing rooms, over fears that patrons may use image- and video-capable devices to surreptitiously grab shots of each other.

Fiio E1 iPod headphone amp spotted

Fiio E1 iPod headphone amp spotted

There's a compact band of loyal headphone-amp users who swear by the audio-tastic qualities of some external amplification, so it comes as no great surprise that manufacturer Fiio are attempting to jump onto the iPod gravy-train.  The Fiio E1 plugs directly into the docking connector of an iPod or iPhone and not only offers in-line remote controls but the sort of headphone boost that can drive high-end cans or simply help more mainstream models shine.

iPod nano 5G Video Review

iPod nano 5G Video Review

Apple's traditional September iPod event last week failed to deliver the all-encompassing camera update widely predicted, leaving the compact fifth-generation iPod nano as recipient of the most attention.  With video recording capabilities, a new radio and even a pedometer, the nano 5G certainly has a longer spec-sheet; has it managed to do what Steve Jobs predicted, though, and stomp neatly over the Flip camcorder?  SlashGear set to finding out.

iPod nano 5G gets teardown

If there's one thing you can count on - beyond third-party accessories - it's that as soon as a new iPod hits the shelves, it'll be torn down to its component parts.  iFixit have already begun to strip the camera-toting iPod nano 5G out of its glossy shell and down to bare circuit-boards, and even if chip codes and DACs mean nothing to you there's something scandalously exciting about watching it happen.

Apple iPod nano 5G hands-on [Video]

Apple's iPod event has only just ended, but we've already had a chance to grapple with what was probably the highlight of the day: the new iPod nano 5G.  Now packing a 2.2-inch LCD display and a video camera on the back - complete with microphone and speaker - the nano is now set to take on Flip's camcorder.  Don't expect it to necessarily replace your digital camera, though; the nano 5G only shoots video, not still photos.
