Something to be thankful for: online Black Friday sales
There are many things I can be thankful for this time of year: my wife, our daughter, our friends and families, our home, not being stuck in Wednesday's traffic, the pumpkin pie I made from scratch, and so on. But this isn't a blog about relationships or real estate or driving or cooking; it's one about technology.
So the thing I'm particularly grateful for here is the post-Thanksgiving sale that doesn't require you to leave the house. I realize that some of you regard it as a sort of sport to get up before dawn on that Friday and descend on the nearest mall. Don't let me stop you--but I would rather sleep in, then drag myself to the nearest laptop.
In this context, I can deal with waiting for a shipment to arrive. That lag will be far more pleasant than the time spent crawling out of a parking lot and then along the nearest highway.
(If you are trekking out to a mall today, though, you should read Danielle Douglas and Steven Overly's article about how retailers are trying to connect with shoppers through their phones.)
(If you're not sure what new tech gadget to buy, you might want to have a look at my thoughts on computers, smartphones and televisions, Blu-ray players and other home-video devices.)
What Web-accessible deals have you found today? Let me--more importantly, your fellow readers--know about them in the comments.
