In the last few years it actually showed that better deals could be found easier on the web and not in-stores. There have been even better deals on notebooks and other gear weeks before the actual Black Friday. Read our report on the Black Friday deal highlights from Black Friday 2009.
Supporting this trend is a new survey by RIS. According to Adweek most retail executives see a 10% and more increase in online revenues for the coming holiday shopping season.
This means that retailers will also focus more on online Black Friday promotions and sales events. On the web the battle between retailers is much more intense and immediate. We have seen this last year with the price war between Walmart and Amazon. Prices almost got matched in real-time. Shopping online for Black Friday 2010 will be fun and will save you a bundle if you start early enough.

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.
