Target claims no responsibility for 'Black Friday' data theft in court

11/22, 11:04am

Retailer points to third party payment processors as guilty party

Five banks are suing retailer Target over the infamous "Black Friday" data breach in a federal lawsuit. In a hearing yesterday before US District Judge Paul Magnuson, Target claimed that the bank's losses weren't the retailer's fault, as they happened at the point of sale in many stores that the corporation claims it is not responsible for, as opposed to a central failure in corporate data services - therefore, the Minnesota and US Plastic Card Security Act provisions don't apply.

Apple tablets top-selling item at most major retailers

A survey done by retail analyst InfoScout based on over 100,000 Black Friday sales receipts from iOS and Android smartphone owners has revealed both expected and unexpected trends: the fact that Apple's latest iPad models were the runaway top seller among both tablets specifically and consumer electronics generally is not surprising -- but that 40 percent of iPad sales went to self-identified Android smartphone owners was less predictable.

Apple Black Friday deals likely to revolve around gift cards

11/27, 4:41pm

May be meant to spur accessory sales

Apple's planned Black Friday event will likely focus on gift cards, rather than actual discounts, sources say. A person buying an eligible product at an Apple Store is expected to get a gift card valid only at retail, and only after the date it was issued. Buying a Mac at a US store, for instance, might get shoppers a $100 card, while an iPad might come with a $50 card. Accessories and peripherals may come with $25 or $50 cards, depending on how much the product costs.
