Telecom Black Friday

Every year Christmas comes a month early for many who take advantage of Black Friday.B The day after Thanksgiving is the busiest shopping day of the year.B I must admit that I don’t do well in crowds so shopping at the mall on Black Friday is not my idea of fun.B That doesn’t mean I have to miss out on all the deals though.

Armed with a computer (desktop, laptop, iPad) and internet access, I can shop without encountering another soul.B I know.B For many people, the frenzy and excitement of the crowd is what makes the experience.B Still, I know that there are many out there b like me b who avoid the malls on Black Friday like the plague.

Online retailers have created their own version of Black Friday known as Cyber Monday.B Itbs great for crowd-phobic people like me.B Cyber Monday isnbt limited to the Monday after the Thanksgiving weekend.B Online retailers consider sales from the entire 5-day period when evaluating the results of their efforts to lure customers to their web sites with irresistible offers.

And, apparently, families have taken to Cyber Monday making it an annual tradition.B In fact, Cyber Monday sales were up 33% last year in year over year statistics.B Also important to note, that Cyber Monday 2011 sales not only hit record highs in the afternoon but there was a fundamental shift in the way consumers viewed Cyber Monday in the evening.

Instead of going home and turning on the TV or engaging in other activities, consumers kept their computers, tablets, and smart phones by their side and continued shopping. Sales continued to rise in the early evening to record levels which were significantly higher than recent years.

So, in the spirit of the holidays, Ibll give you a few ideas to get your started!

One offer I saw this week is for an iPad 2.B You can buy one at this retailer for $399.B It also comes with a $75 gift card so your net cost is $324.B If I didnbt already have one, Ibd definitely be tempted.

This is a great time of year to put together a list for bSantab.B What latest and greatest tool would allow you to take advantage of the innovation in telecommunications?B Is there a new smart phone that youbve had your eye on?B How about a new tablet computer b an iPad or its alternative?B Could you use a new monitor?B Or, how about a second monitor?

Are you thinking bigger?

How about a new and powerful desktop computer?B Or, maybe you could upgrade your wireless network to take advantage of the additional bandwidth thatbs available to you.B What about a new printer? I am still loyal to the one brand Ibve been using since the 80s and I love to pickup the latest technology they have to offer.

What would I like to leave you with?B Whether you are a Black Friday or Cyber Monday shopper, this time of year offers great deals on most of the tools we use to stay productive.B And, if you choose wisely, youbre likely to significantly improve your productivity which will pay for your new btoyb in no time.
