T-Mobile, now the third largest wireless carrier in the United States (behind Verizon and AT&T), is planning a series of special promotions for the holiday season. It's called Un-carrier Unwrapped and for the next month, T-Mobile will introduce a "special gift" for customers each week, starting with three full months of unlimited high-speed 4G LTE data. The three free months of data applies to all active Simple Choice postpaid customers, including business customers.

It's mid-November and you know what that means, right? Yes, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, giving us an excuse to cheat on our diets and stuff our face full of fowl treats. And of course it also means that Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year, is fast approaching. To help you prepare for the onslaught of deals, Best Buy has posted a bunch of items that will be available at discounted prices.As is normally the case, you can expect markdowns on big screen TVs. If you're looking to make a jump into 4K Ultra HD territory, be on the lookout for a Samsung 60-inch 4K Smart TV for... Read more...
We haven’t even closed out October yet, and we’re already getting a sneak peek at what’s in store for Black Friday 2015. One of the first hot deals to kick off the holiday shopping season comes from none other than Dell, and it’s a doozy. Dell will offer the Xbox One Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Bundle (500GB) for a low, low price of $299.99. That price on its own is commendable, as it currently retails for $349.99. However, you can find sales nearly every week to get the Xbox One at the price, so that’s not exactly newsworthy. However, Dell is juicing the deal up by also including a free copy... Read more...
One of the few places you can go to pick up motor oil, baby diapers, shotguns, and fresh fruit in a single trip is Walmart. It's also where you'll find a bunch of Black Friday deals, provided you're willing to fight the unruly crowd. If so, here's a heads up that E FUN's newest Windows tablet, the 8-inch Nextbook, is headed to Wally World's brick and mortar locations on Black Friday for just $99. The device itself comes with 16GB of internal storage, though if you take advantage of the Black Friday promotion, you'll also receive a 16GB microSD card in the box, essentially doubling the device's...

If you're reading this, it means you survived the madness that is Black Friday, and for that we congratulate you. Not all Black Friday shoppers are jerks, but if you're braving the crowds on the busiest shopping day of the year, you're bound to run into at least a few. Times are tough all around and the allure of saving big money has a tendency to bring out the worst in some people. This begs the question, are the savings worth it? In some cases, a strong argument can be made for waiting in long lines, especially for electronics. Big screen TVs, laptops, and other electronics end up heavily discounted.... Read more...
While Apple is over in Cupertino doing its best Ebenezer Scrooge impression by shunning cash discounts on products in favor of bundled gift cards, Microsoft is doing Black Friday the right way. There are some significant discounts on various Microsoft gear over at its online store, which not only means upfront savings, but you also get to avoid the hustle and bustle of the holiday crowd. The original Surface tablet can be had for $199, marked down from $349. Sure, it's saddled with Windows RT, and who knows if that operating system is long for this world or not, but at $199, it's at least an interesting... Read more...
Bah, humbug. As if crowds fighting yet again to get to Walmart doorbusters weren't bad enough to nearly ruin Thanksgiving, Apple zealots who have waited all year for a small sale on an iProduct are likely going to be let down by this year's Black Friday sale. Unlike years in the past, Apple isn't offering cash-off discounts on products. Instead, it's offering Apple Gift Cards as the discount. In other words, you'll still pay full retail for anything you buy from Apple today, but at least you'll have a bit of Apple cash to spend on more Apple gear in the future. It's actually a pretty clever trick.... Read more...
Tis the season to shop until you drop, and rather than risk getting run over by savage shoppers who wouldn't think twice about trampling a toddler if it meant winning the race to the electronics section at Wally World, more and more people are finding it more convenient to shop online during Black Friday. That will certainly save you from physical harm, but there are other risks you need to be aware of. USA Today's Byron Acohido talked with a number of security professionals who collectively warned about increasingly aggressive efforts by cybercriminals to prey on Black Friday and Cyber Monday...

You're more than welcome to feign surprise if you really wish, but Apple's popular iPad tablet was one of the most sought after tablets on Black Friday. It was also the main vehicle for mobile online shoppers, according to IBM. Big Blue said that early promotions this holiday shopping season pushed online sales up 17.4 percent on Thanksgiving Day, setting the stage for 20.7 percent growth on Black Friday. "The iPad generated more traffic than any other tablet or smartphone, reaching nearly 10 percent of online shopping," IBM said. "This was followed by iPhone at 8.7 percent and Android 5.5 percent....

I don't mind the madness that is Black Friday, I really don't. You won't catch me camping out in front of Best Buy or any other store for hours or days on end, but you might spot me walking the aisles after the doors open, in part because the spectacle is a sight to behold. Last night, for example, I took my 16-year-old stepdaughter shopping at the mall. She had never experienced Black Friday and wanted to see the commotion first-hand. Feeling good from the butt-kicking the Patriots put on the Jets, I thought, 'What the hell, let's do this.' And so we did. She snagged some good deals too, stocking... Read more...
Every year, it seems like retailers are opening earlier and earlier on Black Friday in an attempt to be the first stop for shoppers. This year, Microsoft is starting even earlier than most: According to a teaser located on the main page of the company's online store, the company plans to start its Black Friday sale on Thursday morning at 12:00 AM. Not all deals will be available on Thursday—for users who want a deal on Microsoft's new Surface, you'll have to wait until Friday. For customers who want to score a deal on an Xbox 360, Microsoft software, and other Microsoft products, Thursday's... Read more...
Believe it or not, shoppers have already started camping out at some Best Buy stores in anticipation of Black Friday. If lining up a week early seems insane, well, that's because it is. Be that as it may, Rhiannon Buckingham found herself near the front of the line at a Best Buy store in El Cajon, California. "Last year, I came on Tuesday and I was 17th in line," she told Channel 10 News, a local ABC news affiliate. "They only had 15 TVs." Not all Best Buy locations take kindly to people camping out so far in advance of Black Friday, and in fact a property manager at the El Cajon location made... Read more...
In a show of the very best of humanity, a Black Friday scene at a California Walmart devolved from ordinary sale-mongering to physical altercation to pepper spray attack. According to the L.A. Times, a shopper hell-bent on acquiring some deeply discounted merchandise let loose with pepper spray, which wafted throughout the store, stinging the eyes and throats of holiday shoppers throughout. One eyewitness reported seeing about eight customers that apparently bore the brunt of the pepper spray being attended to at the front of the store. (In the pepper sprayer’s defense, he or she may have... Read more...
