Turkey, stuffing and Macs?

It appears that Americans enjoyed a healthy serving of Macs over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Writing for Fortune's Apple 2.0 blog Philip Elmer-DeWitt analyzed Apple's domestic sales on Amazon.com over the critical Black Friday selling weekend. He concludes that Apple's online sales got off to a better start than expected but that they didn't sell as well as last year.

The iPod Touch was Amazon’s No. 1 best-selling electronics item Black Friday morning. By Sunday, however, it had dropped to No. 4 after the Kindle reader, a Canon (CAJ) Powershot camera and a Garmin (GRMN) GPS navigator.

All told, three of Amazon’s top 10 bestselling electronics items — and 10 of the top 25 — were made by Apple. By the end of the holiday shopping season last year, five of the top 10 were Apple’s (link).

Apple doesn't report its sales numbers until the end of their fiscal first quarter, some time in late January.
