As a result of the rioting tragedy that has been taking place in London and surrounding areas over the past four days, Apple is taking precautions to protect retail store employees and inventory.

Now that everyone's all tired out from Black Friday bargain shopping, we figured we should pimp some of the sweet deals on the App Store! There's no particular order to this list, but it's full of awesome stuff. There are quite a few great games on sale, including Sims 3, Terminator Salvation, Tap Tap Dance, and many more. You can also find many of our favorite non-games on sale, such as Delivery Status Touch, Keymote, and Convert. I also highly recommend checking out the great deals on GPS navigation apps, including ones from Navigon and TomTom.
The full list of our favorite App Store deals follows after the break!
Black Friday (a.k.a., the beginning of the U.S. holiday shopping season, a.k.a. "El Stampede") is only a few hours away and assorted retailers have begun assembling a variety of iPhone and iPod-related accessory and app specials. So, without further ado, here's the list as far as we know:
Apple has officially announced their Black Friday sale for November 27th at their online store. A previous rumor claimed the iPod touch would be on sale for at first an unknown price, and then for $178-$358 in a second rumor offering more prices. We'll have to wait until Friday to know for sure, but there's a pretty good chance the iPod touch will be on sale.
Last week, a promotional email for Apple's annual Black Friday sale this year was leaked, revealing discounts on the iPod touch. Today, a second promotional image offering more detailed prices on a variety of products offers some details, and also appears more credible and realistic.
Apple's plans for a storewide sale on Black Friday appears to have been leaked in the form of an official company graphic possibly for use in one of their news letters. Unfortunately, it doesn't show any discounts on the iPhone, but does show discounts on everything else except the Shuffle, including the iPod touch.
As you've probably noticed if you live in the U.S., today is Black Friday, and as expected, Apple has posted discounts on gadgets. Their list is a little disappointing this year, however, with only deals on gear for the iPhone 3G and iPod touch and the iPod touch itself. The rumor that Apple would be discounting the iPhone 3G for the holiday was incorrect.
The holidays are among us, and the biggest spending day is right around the corner. However, you don't have to get out of bed at 5:00 in the morning to get the good deals. Below are some of the best online deals are for iPhone and iPod touch related accessories. Most of these specials are limited to a date or quantity remaining, so act fast to "cash in" on these deals.
