When Black Friday rolls around, and shoppers grab for their wallets, tech gear is often one of the most sought-after product categories overall. This year Nintendo racked up massive Black Friday sales, even though the Switch hasn't had near the number of new high-profile games land this year as competing platform. Certainly, lots of gamers are anticipating Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launching next month, and the new Switch Pokemon game that recently launched has sold well, but those are some of the only heavily anticipated games for the console this year. Nintendo offered up some good Black Friday deals on the Switch and the 2DS, and has taken the opportunity to toot its own horn over sales for... Read more...

Amazon is killing it this holiday shopping season, or so the online retailer claims. According to Amazon, Black Friday sales of Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets on the company's website have grown by leaps and bounds year-over-year. Specifically, Fire tablet sales were up three-fold on Black Friday compared to last year, while Kindle e-reader sales nearly quadrupled. "This holiday there are going to be a lot of customers opening up new Amazon devices," said Dave Limp, Senior Vice President, Amazon Devices. "We’re energized by the year over year growth of tablet and e-reader Black Friday sales on Amazon.com, plus the success of the new product categories we’ve launched this year."Indeed, we took...

When you think Amazon, you probably imagine books and freaky fast shipping. You probably don't think about drones and robots, both of which have crept into the company's fabric over the past year or so. In addition to preparing a Prime Air service which would (in theory) drop packages to your front door, the company has just rolled out its eighth-generation fulfillment center which relies on "robotics, vision systems, and high-end technology to speed up order delivery times for customers."Specifically, one of the stars is Kiva. Kiva is strolling around in 10 of these new centers across the United States, moving crates and generally making life easier for humans and faster for those ordering.... Read more...
For most folks, it's back to the daily grind on Monday, which is a double-whammy if you'd prefer to sit at your PC all day stocking up on deals courtesy of Cyber Monday savings.

If you're out in the cold putting up with aggressive drivers and rabid shoppers who wouldn't think twice about trampling you in pursuit of a $100 savings on a high definition TV, you're doing Black Friday wrong. For some, it's become tradition, and we understand that. But for the most part, that's the antiquated model for scoring a deal. We now have this awesome thing called the Internet, which among other things, allows us to benefit from Black Friday deals from home. Yesterday we shared some of the highlights Best Buy has to offer, and today we'll give you a glimpse of the sweet savings that are just a few mouse clicks away (or finger taps) at Amazon. To begin with, if you're need of a new... Read more...
I’m typically not a fan of “holiday creep”, but I’ll make an exception for Cyber Monday; the one-day online mega sale has grown into a whole Cyber Week, and Microsoft is taking things even further with its “12 Days of Deals” event. If the first day’s deal is any indication, this is going to be kind of an incredible dozen days. Microsoft is offering the Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet for just $99 on Monday, December 9th. The first 20 people who claim it in person at Microsoft stores will get the ridiculous deal for a tablet that usually goes for $299. There are 10 more available at each store for $199, which is still an amazing deal. Keep in mind that although... Read more...
Motorola is pushing its Moto X (review here) and Moto G handsets hard on Cyber Monday; one is on sale, and the other is now shipping, in plenty of time for the holidays. The Moto X is $150 off today, making the unlocked 16GB just $349 and the 32GB model $399. On most carriers, the price is usually $99 with a contract, so this is a pretty sweet deal. The Moto X is currently getting the Android 4.4 KitKat treatment, too. You better hurry, though--there are limited supplies, and it judging from the fact that the MotoMaker site appears to be down for the moment, a lot of folks are taking advantage of the deal. Motorola also has most of its accessories on sale for 30% off, so you can snag cases, headphones,... Read more...
In case you forgot, Cyber Monday is coming, and although you very well could spend more money tomorrow than you did on Black Friday, you definitely won’t be trampled to death. Put that in the plus column right there, friend. Amazon, of course, has a plethora of Cyber Monday deals, but the e-commerce behemoth is extending many of its sales for the whole first week of December. Here are a few good deals waiting for you: In Laptops & Tablets, you can get 15% off an Alienware ALW-17-3745sLV gaming notebook, dropping the price from $1,700 down to $1,449.99.

The instructions for the game say it all: “Punch yourself in the face to stay awake, but don’t punch too much or you will die.” It’s a game that isn’t especially scintillating, but it’s a simple and funny commentary on the whole Black Friday experience. Basically, you have to punch yourself to stay awake, and you can jump, and it’s really easy to kill yourself. That’s the whole game. You get a higher score depending on how long you can hold out without either dying or falling asleep. Black Friday has become an unsavory part of an otherwise great holiday. It’s true that some families make a tradition out of it, bundling up and heading out at... Read more...
