Apple doesn’t put things on sale. The company rarely offers discounts to any of its branded products without some kind of caveat (student and educator discounts, refurbished items, etc.).

Apple has a Good Day in Court – Busts Smartphone Patent Claim and Judge Says Samsung must Pay for Patent Infringement
Apple and Samsung have sired their dirty laundry across the globe over the past couple of years. Each sued the other for patent infringement in a multitude of countries. In some places, Apple won. In others, it was Samsung.

Women can be doctors… and time travelers… and humanoid aliens.
