We talked a lot about some of the killer deals you could get on Black Friday and Cyber Monday around here. A company called Coremetrics has now offered up some details on the product purchased on the two busy shopping days and an indication of how sales in 2011 stacked up to 2010 and 2009. Except for a big spike early in the morning in 2009, sales this year were higher almost hour for hour compared to the two previous years.
According to the company, the mobile devices that were the most popular were the iPhone and iPad making up almost 14.3% of all Black Friday online retail traffic. Overall sales on Black Friday were up 24.3% compared to last year. Mobile traffic for shopping on BF was up 14.3%. Mobile device sales were up 9.8%.
Mobile shopping was the clear domain of Apple this year with the iPhone and iPad number one and two for mobile devices purchased. Android devices were third in the purchased list. Shoppers also used social networks with Facebook grabbing 75% of the shopping traffic that originated for social networks. Sales were also up a lot on Cyber Monday with 2011 clearly more successful overall than 2010 and 2009.

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.
