Apple kicks down the Black Friday door

Attention internet shoppers: Apple is joining the Black Friday fray this week with a one-day shopping event.

Announcing the event via a promotional webpage visible on its US, UK and Australian sites, the company says "Friday can't come soon enough." The page teases no specifics on deals -- not even the smallest hint -- but invites shoppers to "come back this Friday to tick (or "check" if you're on the US site) everyone off your list." Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Online buyers will get free two-day delivery on in-stock items, the page says. And if you'd rather shop offline, Apple retail stores in the three countries will be open for extended hours.
