As if there weren't enough new consoles coming out this year, Amazon is rumored to be throwing its hat into the ring as well. There are rumors swirling around (via ExtremeTech) that the mammoth marketplace could be launching an Android-based game console by the end of the year.
Amazon could hardly contain its excitement over how many Kindle devices it sold on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the busiest offline and online (respectively) shopping days of the year. According to Amazon, the holiday weekend was the "best ever" for the Kindle family, especially Cyber Monday, which ranked as the biggest day ever for Kindle sales worldwide. It was pretty much the same situation last year, which makes it even more impressive that Amazon managed to double its holiday weekend sales record from 2011.
The busiest shopping day of the year, Black Friday, has come and gone, but fear not. Even though Black Friday is officially over, many of the deals still remain, and even more are just getting started. On top of it all, Cyber Monday 2012 is here!
We understand you'd rather not waste your time wading through discounted toasters and button-up shirts, so we went out and did the dirty work for you. What we brought back with us is a robust collection of PC-related parts, accessories, and games, all organized into handy categories. If you see "(BF)" next to an item, it's a Black Friday deal (we'll cross out the ones that are expired), and "(CM)" indicates a Cyber Monday deal. Also, we're not fans of mail-in-rebates, so we've omitted most of those deals. For the few that we include, they're represented with an asterisk.
As the weekend progresses, we'll be updating this list with new deals as they emerge, so be sure to bookmark this page and check back often. And if you happen to find a killer deal we missed, be sure to share it with us and the rest of our readers in the comments section below.
Hopefully you all stayed safe out there and survived the madness that is known as Black Friday. Or maybe you skipped all the hoopla of angry crowds and avoided all the pushing and shoving by staying at home and doing your shopping online. Certainly many of you did, According to comScore's data, online shopping on Black Friday surged to $1.042 billion, making it the heaviest online shopping day to date in 2012, and representing a 26 percent bump compared to last year.
Black Friday is the busiest (and craziest) shopping day of the year. Why go to the store and risk being pummeled when you could order comfortably from the confines of your home? Our sponsor LogicBuy has compiled a big list of some of their best online deals below:
By all accounts, most folks should be chilling out and winding down right about now. We’re smack-dab in the midst of the holidays, it’s Friday, and even if you don't care about Christmas, the imminent vanishing of dozens of overly festive TV commercials should bring a smile to your face. Speaking of commercials, did you see Best Buy’s “Game On Santa”? As it turns out, Santa won in the end – and you lost. Best Buy recently began notifying some customers that their online orders – even ones made as far back as November – won’t be fulfilled. To quote the lady in the commercial, it’s awkward.
In this day and age of the Internet, it seems increasingly silly and obsolete to awake at an ungodly hour, stumble out of bed, drive across town in the cold, camp out in a long line, and then make a mad dash to the electronics section hoping you don't get trampled to death in the process, all in the name of Black Friday. Some of the best deals are only found in brick-and-mortar stores, that's true, but online shoppers are proving to be more than just a group of also-rans.
Forget all the talk about a down economy and lack of disposable income for a moment. None of that seemed to affect Amazon, the online giant who peddled more Kindle devices this past Black Friday than ever before. Overall Kindle sales jumped four-fold compared to last year, and the popular Kindle Fire tablet remained the best selling product across all of Amazon since its introduction 8 weeks ago, Amazon said.
