Cyber Monday

by @ 8:12 am. Filed under Current Events, Technology

Today, the Monday after Thanksgiving is known as Cyber Monday. Cyber Monday is kind of the techie equivalent of Black Friday. Retailers are smart, very smart. They know Americans love buzzwords. In 2005 “the National Retail Federation’s online division, Shop.org coined” the term “Cyber Monday” to get the public’s attention…and the rest is history as they say. In 2006 Cyber Monday brought over $600 million in online sales to US retailers. Not back…and this wasn’t the biggest day of the year for online shopping. Cyber Monday’s biggest volume day last year was unexpectedly a Wednesday in December… December 13 actually. Why a Wednesday? I don’t know. This year according to Shop.org most retailers are offering online consumers special incentives, the most common being free shipping. I like shopping on the web. It’s fun and convenient… but, the best part about it is…you don’t need to find a parking space.
