Apple iPad Going Like Hot Cakes Overseas

Apple iPad Going Like Hot Cakes Overseas

The iPad numbers are growing, and with the reviews explaining why that's happening, we completely understand. And if the recent reports of the tablets being sold out at Best Buys are any indication of what's really happening out there, then this story from CNN about the iPad selling for oodles and oodles of money is no surprise to us. It's not like it's the first time, either. When there's barely any stock, especially of an Apple product, then the demand goes out of this world. And with it, the price people are willing to pay.

NPD with report that Wii fronts video game industry to “biggest sales month ever” in December

NPD Group’s retail data released last night discloses that December was the video game industry’s “biggest sales month ever”, besting last December by 4%.  While it wasn't enough to match up with 2008's combined record-smashing revenues, December's sales rally saved 2009 from an even dismal finish, leaving aggregate industry revenue 8 points down, or $19.7 billion compared to last year's $21.4 billion.

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.

Peek on sale for $50 today only

Peek on sale for $50 today only

If you have any interest at all in the device known as Peek, then you had better get moving! Apparently, for today only you can get the handheld for just $49.95. That's a pretty good deal, which is about $30 off of its previous asking price.

I never exactly saw the appeal of this device, especially since its one and only feature is email access. Is it trying to be an old school BlackBerry? I guess no one can really know. But if you need email and you need it now, the Peek might be for you.

The only catch here is that you'll have to shell out $20 a month for the network access. Other than that, though, this is a pretty good deal. Again, if email is your one and only means of communication.
