Switched Black Friday 2010 Guide

Share As with the holiday season in general, the post-Thanksgiving shopping panic just keeps getting longer. What started out as a one-day discount bonanza known as Black Friday has now spawned an online-only counterpart in Cyber Monday. This year, though, retailers are offering steep discounts early and often. Many outlets are now adding Thanksgiving Day to the holiday shopping schedule, and som...

Black Friday Produces Serious Green, 'Twitter' Named 2009's Most Popular Word

Highlights from this morning's other big tech headlines.... Hopefully, the early Black Friday online shopping statistics are indicative of the state of the economy. The average online consumer ordered more goods, and spent significantly more money than he or she did last year ($170.19 versus $126.04). [From: Mashable] The political fervor of the past year has apparently dissipated somewha...

How to Survive and Make the Most of Black Friday and Cyber Monday

Black Friday and Cyber Monday mark the unofficial beginning of the holiday shopping season, and are the two biggest shopping days of the year. On the Friday following Thanksgiving, herds of consumers line up outside stores for break-of-dawn openings and door-buster deals. Cyber Monday has become Black Friday's Web counterpart, with online retailers offering steep discounts and pushing more unit...

Cyber Monday Traffic Way Up, Xbox 360 Sales Hit Record

Yesterday's news about holiday shopping was somewhat positive, with online shopping found to be up two percent on Black Friday compared to 2007, but the word that overall holiday shopping was down four percent sent the markets reeling.

Despite Economic Slump, Online Black Friday Sales Up

Okay, so you don't need us to tell you that the economy is in dire straights at the moment. But, perhaps we can be the bearer of a wee bit of good news on this Cyber Monday. While online holiday sales have been down this year compared to November of 2007, sales on Thanksgiving day and Black Friday were actually up -- just not enough to offset the decline. Online sales for the period covering Nov...

Wireless ButtKicker Kit Ready to Rumble Your Posterior

Earlier this year, we were fortunate (or unfortunate, depending on perspective) enough to get our rumps on one of the famed ButtKickers. For those unaware, these devices are meant for installation underneath a seat or sofa in order to provide chair-rumbling effects to help you "feel" the film. Now, the Guitammer Company is making them even easier to install by cutting the wires, bringing low fre...

LCD TV Prices May Be Slashed for the Holidays

The economy is a funny thing. Thanks to reduced consumer spending due to the current financial crisis (no, you can't even escape it at Switched), coinciding with a boon in manufacturing output, this holiday season could see even more drastic cuts in the price of LCD TVs. Analysts expect prices to be slashed for Black Friday, and think the lower prices will last through next year. They expect th...

Shoppers Spending More Online than Ever

If you watched the news before Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year for American retailers, you surely heard tales of doom and gloom with predictions of downward trends in consumer spending and all that jazz. As it turns out, sales in-store were just fine, and according to reports about online shopping, many chose to wait and do their shopping on the following "Cyber Monday," buyi...

Where to Find Post-Thanksgiving Deals

Well, Black Friday came and went, but it's still kind of Black Friday at many places through the end of the weekend. This means hundreds of amazing deals on electronics and other digital doodads, not to mention insanely long lines. We don't really think all the fuss is worth it, particularly since two weeks ago, we bought a Panasonic 42-inch plasma HDTV for about $1,100. In fact, we're confiden...

Best Buy's $200 Black Friday PC and Other Cheap Computers

Shopping on Black Friday requires a certain amount of masochism -- struggling through the crowds, punching mothers in front of their children to get that cheap plasma TV -- it's dangerous business. If you decide to brave the battlefield at Best Buy this year, you'll be rewarded with an opportunity to grab an eMachines PC with a 17 inch LCD monitor for the super low price of $200. Don't expect th...
