Once upon a time, most Americans had to go to work or school if they wanted to get on the Internet. Out of those dark ages comes Cyber Monday, the first Monday after Thanksgiving, when people flock online to buy everything from toys, to kitchenware, to power tools, and of course, electronics.
Internet access is now ubiquitous, but retailers are not going to lose a perfectly good excuse to move more merchandise. So Cyber Monday lives on.
If the thought of scouring the Amazon homepage for new deals every few minutes is painful, Amazon has a list of deals that will go live, at some point, during the 8-day promo. Unfortunately, the company did not publicize the times when these deals will go live, but at least we know what to expect.
