November 14, 2006: Apple teams up with a slew of airline companies to offer the “first seamless integration” between iPod and in-flight entertainment systems around the world.

The name of the game this week is broad sitewide sales. Check out everything from iPads to cables at Groupon, or grab some refurbished hardware at eBay. These and more are in this week’s best Apple deals.
That’s according to a recent study carried out by the University of Michigan, which found that parents with “difficult” children are far more likely to give them iPads to pacify them — particularly during high-stress times like eating, being in public, doing chores, or going to bed.
