Today, June 15, the 2011 Back To School Promotion is supposed to launch. At least this is what 9to5Mac says that they have confirmed. The Apple rumor source ChronicWire, which has mentioned the Wednesday launch date before just tweeted that the Apple Back To School deal launch is slightly delayed. The launch would not be today. It is hard to say which report to believe. 9to5Mac says that Apple is changing Apple Store layouts tonight and that the iPad Smart Signs get an update.
That Apple will just offer $100 iTunesGift Cards as 2011 Back To School 2011 Promotion is getting more likely in the mean time as more sources confirm this. The advantage of an iTunes gift card is that it is almost like cash. The disadvantage compared to the free 8GB iPod touch is that its only half the value you got last year in the Apple Back To School sale. From Apple's view point the $100 iTunes gift card matches about the cost of handing out free iPods. In any case, students still get the educational pricing to save on Mac gear.
This year Apple is really waiting very long with the launch of the Back To School promotion. In 2010 Apple started the deal already the last week of May.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
