Buy PS3 from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 
Black Friday has come and gone. The economy certainly limited what many consumers spent this year and Pricegrabber.com is offering some statistics for online sales. Some of the products with the biggest average price drops for Black Friday were docking stations, seeing a 50% discount, MP3 players dropping 33%, 26% discounts on plasma and LCD TVs, and 12% discounts on microwaves.

The top ten categories for growth on Black Friday were tires of all things at 118%, freezers at 104%, washer/dryers at 70%, swings and bouncers at 58%, HDTV replacement lamps at 48%, and refrigerators at 30%. The best growth in electronics categories were cell phones at 18%, laptops at 7%, and PS3s at 12%. It appears that more people are buying things needed in the home for Christmas this year rather than the items they might really want.

The top ten favorite products this year were the Wii, nuvi 256WT GPS, iPod touch 8GB, D90 SLR camera, digital Rebel XSI camera, Nuvi 756T GPS, Wii Fit, iPod touch 16GB, nuvi 255W GPS, and the Nintendo DS Pokemon pack.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
