How can I buy Apple products? I want to buy the new iPad Mini, and I'd use Gyft to convert BTC to Amazon credit, but the new iPad is not yet on Amazon. Is there any way to buy the new iPad Mini, either directly through Apple or through a 3rd party?
Disregarding anything clever (I am still pretty new to this), you can simply convert your Bitcoins to your local currency through a third party. There will be a transaction fee (I imagine), but I doubt Apple is going to hop on the BTC wagon anytime soon and their business model, AFAIK, won't allow for the same lever of third-party integration as Amazon does.
