    Apple’s Black Friday Sales Detailed

    All Verizon Phones on Amazon Wireless Being Sold for a Penny Until October 17

    In an obvious attempt to battle the iPhone 4S that arrives tomorrow for those who pre-ordered it, Amazon Wireless is offering a pretty amazing deal for current and new Verizon customers. They are selling every Verizon phone for one cent. Yes, the iPhone is on Verizon, but Amazon Wireless doesn't carry it, so it seems they figured this sale is the least they can do to combat the release of the 4S. This sale isn't limited to last-gen flip phones or the cheapest smart phones available; as one can see from the above screenshot, even the LTE-capable Droid Bionic is marked down a cool $699.98. The Bionic isn't the only LTE-capable phone being offered, as the HTC Thunderbolt and Droid Charge are thrown into the mix. On top of the low, low price of one penny, Amazon Wireless is providing free two-day shipping as well.

    However, one can't simply buy up every single phone being offered for a grand total of barely any money in order to throw them all in a drawer and create a fancy phone drawer, as the offer is only available for new lines. The offer is available from now until Monday, October 17.

    First Day iPad Preorder Sales: 20,000 iPads an Hour?

    The iPad has been on sale for almost ten hours, which means it's high time we had some mildly made up preorder sales numbers around here. Andrew Erlichson, the CEO of Phanfare, a photosharing website, has an estimate.
    We just bought two iPads, about 30 minutes apart. Our order IDs are 10,000 apart. Assuming those order IDs are sequential, and they appear to be, then Apple is selling 20,000 iPads per hour:
