Regular iTunes discounts aside, Apple is notorious for tightly controlling the price of its goods. So if you're contemplating , its annual Black Friday sale might be worth checking out.
Apple hasn't released pricing details for the sale (which ties in with the post-Thanksgiving sales in the US, a trend which isn't much emulated here otherwise), but is promising a gift wrapping service in all its stores which lets you order in advance and pick up the wrapped gift in the week before Christmas. Even I could probably manage to wrap an iPod box, but if you're going to spend that amount, you might as well wring out all the service you can get. Apple [via Gizmodo]
