Black Friday Apple Sale Tease

Apple is ready for Black Friday, that’s for sure. The Cupertino company wants you to “Wrap it Up” this Friday with some pretty excellent deals. “You’ll find dozens of great iPad, iPod, and Mac gifts for everyone on your list,” reads the teaser.

With the iPad expected to be the hottest gift of the season, it will be interesting to see just how steep the discounts may be on Friday. Apple has traditionally offered modest discounts on Black Friday, leaving its authorized resellers to come up with steeper discounts. Last year, Apple offered $101 off MacBook Pros and iMacs, while resellers slashed prices by as much as $300.

It’s a GoDaddy Thanksgiving!

Our friends at GoDaddy.com have been great to us over the past few years. They regularly offer coupons and specials to our community, and this weekend is no exception! They are giving all of you their best deal yet:

As a special Black Friday promotion, Go Daddy has given us a special promo code for $5 .com domain names. Use the code BLACKOUT starting at 12:01am on Black Friday 2009 (11-27-2009) thru 11:59pm on Cyber Monday 2009 (11-30-2009) and get a .com domain name for just $5. Here’s the important part, this code will ONLY work for the first 250 people, so think of the perfect name now, and reserve it first thing on Black Friday! (some restrictions apply – see site for details)

How’s that for a Happy Thanksgiving!? If you’ve been putting off buying a domain name because you just don’t want to spend the money – now is your chance! Who can resist this bargain?! Don’t forget… if you have trouble coming up with a domain name to use, why not try out my domain picker?!

I hope all of you in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving today, and I also hope that you took the time to reflect upon what you are thankful for. From myself, my assistant Kat and everyone in the Lockergnome family – thank you! If it weren’t for all of you, we couldn’t do what we do.

What do You Want for the Holidays?

If you could choose any one Geeky gift this holiday season, what would it be? Money is no object. Let’s just close our eyes, and pretend that someone out there has very deep pockets, and wants to buy us each the gift of our dreams. How do you narrow down your list? Do you know what you’d want? Is it possible to choose just one thing?

For me, I honestly couldn’t choose. There are a lot of Geeky things I want. Many of them are expensive, which is why I don’t already own them! Even if I were rich, I still couldn’t afford to keep myself happy with all of the gadgets, gizmos, devices and toys that are out there for sale. Places like ThinkGeek taunt me with all of the cool stuff they have. How could I ever decide?!

It seems a lot of you are getting into the holiday spirit. I came across several posts on our sites today revolving around Thanksgiving and even Christmas. It put me in such a holiday mood that I turned on some Christmas music earlier, and let it play over my live stream. I listened to it and hummed along as I caught up on everything going on in our community.
