Black Friday has come and gone, but several deals on electronics are still out there, now with an emphasis on online shopping. So it goes with Cyber Monday, the annual shopping event for consumers who crave an upgrade but have no interest in battling the traffic and crowds that Black Friday brings to the streets and physical storefronts. Samsung is one of several companies participating in Cyber Monday, and it has some nice discounts on a variety of products, including big screen 4K TVs. Now is definitely the time to buy a 4K TV, if you are in the market for one. With a new year approaching, TV... Read more...
Cyber Monday deals are in the air, and that is especially true for the Essential Phone. Once billed as a flagship killer from Andy Rubin that had the chops to stand toe-to-toe with the best smartphones in the industry, the Essential Phone has essentially been left behind as flashier competitors like the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X have entered the fray. However, the Essential Phone does have one thing on its side at the moment: enviable pricing for a flagship smartphone. For Cyber Monday, Amazon is selling the device for the low, low price of $399 unlocked. That's an all-time low for the smartphone... Read more...
Do you hate how technology has come to rule the day? Are you looking for some peace and quiet during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday madness that is nearly upon us? Do you like...nay, LOVE fried chicken? Then boy, oh boy, does KFC have a product that is right up your alley. It is the Internet Escape Pod, essentially an adult-sized dome made of metal with Colonel Sanders perched on top. And it can be yours for just $10,000! The only thing more obscene than the asking price is what Colonel Sanders appears to be doing to it, but we won't go there. And before anyone cries fowl at the price tag, understand... Read more...
Are you need of a technology upgrade? Well, good news—Black Friday and Cyber Monday are right around the corner, which means there will be plenty of bargains to had. In anticipation of these upcoming events, Dell announced a bunch of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that it has on tap, and among them is an Inspiron 14 laptop for $130, marked down from $250. Remember when low powered netbooks were a thing? The discounted price for the Inspiron 14 is lower than even those systems went for. Granted, this is not a screaming machine we are talking about, but for basic computing chores, it will get... Read more...
If you’re still full from eating tons of turkey on Thanksgiving and leftovers today, you probably didn’t get a chance to venture out today to take advantage of Black Friday sales in brick and mortar stores (and who wants to fight crowds when you can sit at home in your boxers and order most of the same stuff online). Luckily, Amazon Black Friday sales are already running, and the online retail giant has already tipped us off to its upcoming Cyber Monday deals. During Cyber Monday 2015, Amazon says that its customers ordered a total of 54 million items worldwide. That translates to nearly 630 items... Read more...
Savvy online shoppers know that the best time of the year to buy electronics is during the holiday season, and especially Cyber Monday, the first Monday after Black Friday. We're seeing lots of tantalizing mark downs, one of which is Samsung's Galaxy S6 smartphone, unlocked and with 32GB of memory, for just $400.That's $200 off the regular price of what we consider one of the best Android handsets on the market (check out our full review). It has a beautiful and spacious 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a Quad HD resolution (2560x1440). We get the opportunity to play with a lot of phones, and... Read more...
The Monday after Thanksgiving is known as Cyber Monday, basically a Black Friday event for online shoppers who'd rather sit in their PJs and click their way to savings than battle obnoxious crowds to save $50 on a toaster. It's now the most lucrative online shopping day of the year, and just as retailers have been pushing back the beginning of Black Friday events, Walmart is kicking off its Cyber Monday sale a day early this time around.Instead of waiting until the wee hours of the morning on Monday, Walmart will begin offering Cyber Monday discounts to online shoppers on the Sunday after turkey...

Black Friday is officially in the rear view mirror, but it's full "stream" ahead for Cyber Monday. No, we didn't mean to say "full steam," not when there are so many deals on streaming devices to be had, including a delightful $11 savings on Google's Chromecast dongle. We've been fans of Chromecast ever since we reviewed the device over a year ago, and it's only gotten better since then.Head over to Amazon and you'll find Chromecast marked down to $24 (make that $23), a savings of nearly 32 percent over its regular selling price of $35. That's about as cheap as it's ever been (we've previously... 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...

Scary things happen on Black Friday, like the angry mosh pit that broke out at Walmart over low priced cell phones. In the words of Sweet Brown, "Ain't nobody got time for that!" We hear you Sweet Brown, which is why we're big fans of Cyber Monday, the busiest online shopping day of the year. According to data by comScore, American deal seekers spent $1.46 billion on Cyber Monday this year, which qualifies as the heaviest U.S. online spending day in the history of mankind. "Despite some news reports suggesting that Cyber Monday might be declining in importance, the day has once again set an online... Read more...
Cyber Monday is here, and if you managed to survive the craziness that is Black Friday (or skipped it altogether), this is the time to find some killer deals online. To get you started, here's a heads up that, for today only, Amazon is selling its original Kindle Fire device for $129, a savings of $30 over its normal retail price of $159 (add $15 to remove the sponsored "Special Offers" screensaver). That's a great price for what still amounts to a capable tablet (see our review for a refresher), and is less than what Amazon was selling refurbished units for earlier in the year. How does it compare... Read more...
Starting Cyber Monday (Nov. 30), Sprint will be offering the SANYO Incognito SCP-6760. This basic feature phone offers a full QWERTY keyboard and a 2 megapixel camera. One of the cool things about this phone is its Titanium Black mirrored surface with an OLED external display and glow-through keypad buttons that provide haptic feedback when touched. To satisfy mega-messengers and social networkers, the Incognito also features a flip-open full QWERTY keyboard and a 2.6-inch QVGA internal display. Incognito includes popular media and messaging applications such as Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter from... Read more...
Like many of you who are smart enough to know better, we tend to steer clear of the insanity of the crowd and resist the temptation to go deal shopping on the busiest day of the retail calendar.  Why on earth would you subject yourself to all that needless stress and anxiety anyway, when you can squander your holiday pesos online from the comfort of your armchair?  This is a question a growing number of etailers and retailers are posing as of late, to the extent we now have an official name for the first week day after Black Friday.  This coming Monday, December 1st, has been...

Well, "Black Friday" has come and gone. But we who live on the cutting edge don't pay attention to such outdated calendar occasions. We go to work on the Monday after Thanksgiving, boot up the web browser, and buy, buy, buy. Nothing evokes the holiday retail season more than shoppers lined up outside of department stores at 4:59 a.m., the day after Thanksgiving, waiting to snap up the hottest deals. The Internet has its own, albeit less visual, start to the holiday season: Cyber Monday. It marks the day folks return to the office after Thanksgiving, replete with access to superfast...
