Have you been so busy that you barely can comprehend the fact that the Christmas countdown has reached crisis level? Apple understands the last-minute shopping panic that can plague anyone, and has you covered: on December 23rd, the company is gifting people with free overnight shipping. That means even the tardiest of shoppers can have beautifully wrapped Apple items under the tree in time for Santa. And for those who are doomed to end up on the mall on Christmas Eve, there's always free in-store pick-up.
