Apple Plans Black Friday Sale

Apple will be hosting a special "Black Friday" sale in its online and retail stores to kick off the holiday buying season. The special sale will be on November 28, the day after the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, and traditionally the day that retailers start to see their annual sales move to the positive side of their ledgers.

The one-day sale will include special deals on what Apple calls "dozens of great iPod, iPhone, and Mac gift ideas."

Apple is also extending its retail store hours through the holiday season. Store hours vary by location, so be sure to check the Apple Retail Web site to see how late your local store will be open through the holidays.
