Results of Cyber Monday

While driving to work yesterday I was listening to WTOP.  It was predicted that at least $1.2 million would be spent yesterday, Cyber Monday.     The broadcaster stated that approximately 60% of the workforce would be shopping online, and that employers were aware of this and receptive to it, as long as employees did their work first.  Question, how many of us really did our work first?

According to USA Today, online traffic was up 43% from last year, and online sales were up 18% over Cyber Monday 2010 as of 9 p.m. ET.

PriceGrabber identified electronics as the most popular items this year, with sales up 26% over last year, and products such as flat-screen TVs and digital cameras are leading the pack.  EBay’s Cyber Monday special Monday morning on a white Apple iPad2 for $449 sold out in less than two hours, says Richelle Parham, chief marketing officer for eBay North America.

ComScore predicts that online sales for November and December will hit $37.6 billion, a 15% rise over 2010.  Wow!!!  That’s alot of money.  How did we ever make it without the internet?  Anyway, Happy Holidays!!USA Today and Black Friday on YouTube

  2. “I bet if you sold everything eepxct this car you wouldn’t get but a thousand bucks.” Joe knew his possessions were not lavish. He knew that everything he worked for went into his cars. What’s more he knew that a competition was something that he couldn’t back down from. Joe set to work using his dated IBM desktop and put his entire life for sell. He put an asking price of a million dollars and hooted at the thought of somebody paying it. He shut the computer down, he couldn’t leave it on more than a hour at a time or it would overheat, and went to grab a beer from the fridge.An hour or so afterward he turned my computer back on to find out if anyone had placed a bid on all his worldly possessions. What he saw made no sense. The million dollar asking price had already been paid and was in his bank account. Joe passed out at his computer. He woke five minutes later with a splitting headache and a sunburn from his face lying on the computer monitor. Joe stood up and paced back and forth a few times trying to make sense of this joke. The page had a phone number at the bottom with instructions to call as soon as possible. Joe decided to call this jokester and find out what kind of game he was playing. The phone made several clicks and purrs indicating a overseas call. It was finally picked up by a man who sounded very old. “Hello, Is this the man who owns the house?” Joe pulled the phone away from his ear and looked at it. Joe spoke with a slight edge in his voice. “Yes, that’s me! I would appreciate if you would tell me what kind of scam you are running here.” “No scam son, this is very serious business.” The old man said, “ I represent a group of very wealthy investors that have been searching for what you possess for the majority of their lives.” Joe’s mouth was slowly opening with shock but the old man didn’t slow down and give him a chance to articulate his feelings. “We are prepared to pay the price per month that you have requested.” Joe felt like he was in the twilight zone. His mouth was dry and his arms and legs felt like they weighed a hundred pounds apiece. He said the only thing that was going through his mind. “A…a month?” “Yes sir, you sound like a young man so I’m sure a million dollars a month will make you extremely wealthy. My flight leaves late tonight and I will be in your area first thing in the morning. Should we say around 7am?” Joe was still astonished but managed to agree. Before the old man hung up Joe got his sanity back. He said “I know what I have here but just to be clear, what do you believe you are buying?” The old man gave a long sigh and spoke slowly “It’s the fountain of youth boy, the legend says whoever bathes in it will be perpetually immortal. I’m sure you have noticed the effects of just being in close proximity to it. I know you didn’t know what you had but the group I represent doesn’t care about that. They would shell out whatever needed to get at this house.” Joe agreed to meet the man at 7am tomorrow and hung up the phone. He went to the garage and pulled out a sledgehammer. He spoke his thoughts aloud, laughing while he beat the concrete floor to a pulp. “They think a million a month is a deal? Ha Let’s see how they like to pay for it for all eternity!”
