Apple Features iPad Mini in New 2012 Holiday Gift Guide

Apple today updated its online store with its new Holiday Gift Guide for 2012, a collection of products and accessories from Apple and other companies that could make for good holiday gifts.

Unsurprisingly, Apple is heavily promoting the iPad mini in the guide, with "iPad Gifts" being the default section for the guide and the iPad mini prominently displayed at the top of that page. Apple touts a number of other products from its main lineup, including the iPhone 5, iPod touch, iPod nano, full-size iPad, Apple TV, and MacBook Air.

Apple will also almost certainly be participating in Black Friday on November 23, offering a selection of modest deals on Apple and third-party products. Last year, Apple offered $101 off of MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and iMac models, as well as $41-$61 off of iPad models, $21-$41 off of iPod touch models, and $11 off of the iPod nano.

Apple products are the best gifts!

Everyone should buy at least an Apple gift card for everyone on their gift list. Even better is to give everyone an iPad for their very own. Hey - who wouldn't want to receive a shiny new unlocked iPhone 5 in their stocking to replace their aging 4S?

Buying gifts from Apple is a sure way to prove your love!

As an Apple shareholder, I approve this message.

I didnt even have to read the author to figure out who'd posted such a pointless news article.

Why is Eric always given the task of posting pure nonsense?

May as well add a few more shock news posts into his schedule:

- Apple expected to sell more products in December than in January
- Apple expected to say 'Merry Christmas' to shoppers during December

EDIT: the news post was obviously done to get a bit of cash in for MR. Whilst the link may look like its going to take you to 'store.apple.com' it's actually taking you to this:
