Anyone who has been following our Black Friday 2015 coverage knows that Amazon has been offering killer deals all week long in an effort to reel shoppers in early ahead of Black Friday.

Tomorrow is Black Friday but this season’s biggest sales began more than a week ago, and new sales will continue to launch straight through until the holidays are here. Today is Thanksgiving Day though, so you can obviously expect some of the season’s biggest sales to take place today and tomorrow.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have an announcement to make: the Internet exists.

In just a few weeks, three separate reports have stated that Apple is going to use OLED displays in its flagship product, but the move might not occur as soon as you’d hope. A well-connected Apple insider who has provided accurate information about Apple’s products in the past, including the most recent iPhones, said a few weeks ago that while the iPhone 7 will still have an LCD screen, Apple might finally switch to OLED in 2018.
Then a report from The Korea Times said on Wednesday that Samsung is vying to win Apple’s business for iPhone screens. But Samsung’s Display division wants to sell OLED screens for iPhones starting in 2018, with Apple seen as the only smartphone maker that could meaningfully drive up sales and convince other companies to adopt OLED screens in the future.
On Thursday, a third report reiterated that notion. Beginning in 2018, Apple will supposedly use OLED screens in the iPhone, with LG and Samsung seen as the company’s main display suppliers. More →
Many companies are already taking Black Friday orders online on Thanksgiving Day, and that includes Best Buy. That’s certainly not surprising, considering this year retailers tried to beat competitors by hosting several pre-Black Friday promos well ahead of the huge shopping weekend.
Buyers looking to take advantage of special bargains on huge HDTVs, tablets, smartphones and a plethora of other gadgets have probably studied Best Buy’s full Black Friday deals catalog very carefully (see it at this link) and already know what they’re going to buy.
Luckily, you can already start your shopping spree on BestBuy.com, because Black Friday online sales are already live on the site.
The Amazon Echo is without question one of the coolest “Internet of Things” devices out there, and right now you can enjoy a rare opportunity to purchase one at a discount. Remember what a flop the Amazon Fire Phone was? Think of Amazon Echo as the exact opposite in every possible way. While the Fire Phone piled a confusing interface and a bunch of useless features on top of Android, Echo is an intuitive device that makes finding answers to queries and controlling smart devices in your home an absolute breeze.
$179.99 is a great price for the Amazon Echo but for Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, Black Friday Weekend and Cyber Monday only, Amazon is knocking $30 off the price of the Echo, so you can get it for $149.99 shipped. And don’t forget that if you’re not already an Amazon Prime member, you can get a free 30-day trial right here. More →
It’s Thanksgiving Day today, which means you’re probably busy with family and friends… and also with shopping. This year, major retailers have kicked off hundreds of special promotions for Black Friday, choosing to extend their sales well beyond the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend.
Walmart is one of them, having offered consistent deals every day leading up to Black Friday for the past few weeks. But the company has now finally kicked off its full Black Friday online sale, meaning that you can already get your shopping sorted out in between meals, parades and football. More →
Last year we learned that Wu-Tang Clan planned to release a secret album called Once Upon a Time in Shaolin whose distribution would only be limited to one copy. Yes, that’s right: There’s a full album of never-heard Wu-Tang music out there and it’s just sold to an unknown buyer. More →
Whenever you hear about third-party Facebook apps making the news in a privacy-related context, it’s usually not good. But that’s not really the case with Facebook’s latest viral app, which has all the elements of a perfect data heist but is surprisingly safe to use.
You’ve probably seen Vonvon’s Most Used Words popup more than once in your Facebook timeline: It’s an app that mines through the stuff you’ve posted on Facebook and then gives you a graphical representation of the words you’ve used most inside Facebook.
To do that, the developer needs access to a bunch of your data – otherwise it can’t return any results. But Vonvon apparently decided to take a lot more than it really needs, even though it’s not doing anything with it for the time being. It’s not even collecting it. More →
Japanese game shows. Dear God. If you’ve never watched one before, you should know that the parody of them featured on The Simpsons was basically spot on. Basically, many these shows are exercises in sadism that are also extremely funny in their own demented way. If you want a prime example, check out this amazing clip in which several guys have to recite a tongue twister without making any mistakes or else get hit in the balls with a mallet. More →
