Briefly: 10% Off Macs, BizTalk Server 2013

Brief news items of note for Lifehacker readers, including cheap Macs and the beta of BizTalk Server 2013.

  • JB Hi-Fi has 10 per cent off Apple Macs this weekend — a deal that will, if past experience is any guide, beat any Black Friday deals Apple itself might offer later in November.
  • Microsoft’s beta of its BizTalk Server 2013 integration server is available for download and testing. The final release is expected in 2013.
  • Over at Kotaku, Mark has the hilarious story of a 16-year old who has been trying to bribe game store employees to sell him games ahead of general release. Apart from being a great read, it’s a reminder that if you’re trying to persuade someone over the telephone, calling them a tightarse and hanging up is not going to help.
Comments are taking a Good Friday break due to a scheduled server upgrade. They'll be back tomorrow. Apologies for any inconvenience.
