At long last, the iTunes Store looks like it will be officially launching in Russia. For a few weeks now, we have heard rumblings that it may be launching very soon, some users have already seen songs for sale in music searches at extremely competitive prices. Now Apple has supposedly sent out invitations to a small number of people to attend an event in Moscow tomorrow.
Apple has gone live with its Black Friday one day sale and you could make a reasonable saving if you take advantage of the one day event. The sale includes the iPad with Retina display, iPad 2, iPod touch, MacBook Pro with Retina display, MacBook pro, MacBook Air and a few selected accessories.
Apple has silently added a new "Apple Events" app to the standard Apple TV home page and is set to stream today's media event live. So far it appears that this will only be available to Apple TV users but we may find out more later.
Apple has started to prepare the California Theatre in San Jose ahead of its special event tomorrow. Apple sent out invites last week for what is widely thought to be the official announcement of the iPad mini.

We heard yesterday from some very reliable sources that Apple would be holding an event to launch the iPad mini later this month; October 23 to be more precise. Some more information is starting to slip out and it appears that the actual event may be focused on Apple’s iBooks store and of course education. The news comes from The Next Web who has now heard this from multiple sources.
Apple has wasted very little time posting the video stream from today’s new iPad event as it is now live on Apple’s events page. You can now see for yourself how Apple introduced the upgraded Apple TV as well as the next generation iPad wtih a stunning 2048 x 1536 Retina display.

Building off of news from yesterday that Apple will be holding an iPad event in early March comes word that Apple has been in a frenzied rush with developers to finish up their iPad app efforts so they can be demoed on stage. Some of these apps may also be included in future iPad commercials showing off the new model. TheNextWeb reports:
According to All Things D, Apple will announce the iPad 3 in the first week of March. All Things D have a superb track record when it comes to the timing of Apple events; so this is probably as accurate as you are going to get until it is officially announced.
According to a report by Ars Technica, Apple is going to announce a GarageBand type tool to aid in the creation of e-books at its New York education event this Thursday. The new tools will assist in the creation of interactive e-books especially in the education sector.
