Notice that Apple does not call it by the name, they refer to it as a "special one-day shopping event" the same as they do for the Friday after Thanksgiving in the US.
One of the big elements of pricing is supply and demand. The iPad Air "ships within 24 hours" while the 5s still "ships within 2-3 weeks" one big question a company asks is "If I am selling all I can make at a given price, why should I sell for less?"
The Mini with Retina is set to launch "later in November." Target apparently put November 21st on their website, but it is not known how accurate that is.
 Most retailers ARE selling the 5c for $50.  Setting the list price at $99 and selling it at $50 also plays into the fact that people love sales especially around the holidays.  The perceived value among many people (irrational as it is) is higher because they think that they are getting something which normally costs $99 for $50 rather than a $50 phone for $50.
In other news, Apple will offer a minimum $5 credit to anyone who trades in a Windows Phone or Surface.
Every model of gold in the US is up to 7-10 days*.   (*Except 64 Gb Sprint)

  It is quite hard to take seriously the writings of people who use childish expressions such as "Timid Cook."   I am sure Tim Cook, having more information about the internal state of Apple is better poised to make a decision regarding his compensation than you are, especially since I believe he has the time horizon to outlast the irrationality of Wall Street.  Look at companies such as Amazon and Netflix, totally overvalued, compare them to Apple which is in my opinion...
I hope to buy my next car with iOS in it in a few years. My car is a 2009, but similar to what Tim Cook said about TV, using the electronic controls and GPS is like going back 10 years. They want $99 for a maps update. It would be so much better to have Apple Maps integrated. I would love for my car to have most of the features of IOS completely integrated. This is especially attractive when you consider that most automotive "technology" packages are $1,500-$2,000. ...
