Apple holding special online shopping event

Apple Online and Apple Retail have only one sale a year -- Black Friday, held the day after Thanksgiving -- and Apple has already got a helpful reminder posted on their website:

Come back to the Apple Online Store the day after Thanksgiving for a special one-day-only holiday shopping event. You'll find dozens of great iPad, iPod and Mac gifts for everyone on your list.

We doubt we'll see any discounts on the iPhone, but iPod touch has had them in the past and it's the first year for iPad so who knows? Last year savings included $5 on a Magic Mouse, $11 on an iPod nano, $21 on an Apple TV, $41 on an iPod touch, or $101 on a MacBook Pro or iMac, so anything is possible.

If you're not in the mood to get out of bed at 4 in the morning and would rather shop from the comfort of your own home, head on over to the Apple Online Store this Friday to see what kind of deals you can grab.
