Of course the need to get business back is also affecting that. But i've received more emails from the same stores over and over and over again. Usually you get them once a week. Maybe once every couple of weeks today. Three and four times from the same store and while i appreciate what people are trying to do. I think it's the wrong approach. Because i only have so much money to spend christmas. So they're sending me emails for things that i can buy for myself especially things like software companies here to your software here things you can do to buy the new version of the software. And that's fine. But i'm not spending money on me right now. What's cove in nineteen down to the sale cycle this year. Nobody knows were all confused but there has to be a better way.

The Best Cyber Monday Deals 2020

"Expect online shoppers here in the U. S to break a record today. Cyber Monday C net has been looking into some of the best deals out there. And what have you been finding Yeah, actually, What's really interesting is that a lot of the best deals are holdovers from black Friday, and part of this is because we've been seeing this black Friday type sales going on. It's October. So really, it's been like black month or black season or whatever you wanna call it, So ah, lot of the Amazon devices are still heavily discounted. A lot of that is obviously because Amazon is one of the biggest winners of black Friday and cyber Monday each year, so a to least online, so that's not a surprise. Thea. Other thing that we've been seeing is that televisions are actually still getting really good deals. And so if you're after a television we used to say, Don't buy a television until March, because that's when they're putting out all the old ones and getting new ones. But now black Friday and cyber Monday have actually become good times to buy a television. What's happening with logistics, and I know for a while there. The distribution chains were a little backed up because of covert 19 concerns. Are the distributors able to meet the Meet the bill here at this point on cyber Monday? It seems as though I mean it's really interesting because we watched in the spring when Cove it really started to take hold, and we were all on lockdown. I don't know if you remember, but it would take weeks for an Amazon shipment to show up at a lot of our doors, even though we had two days shipping Don't want that was because they just weren't prepared for the demand. That was there. Well, now we're looking at the highest demand ever. Lizzie that's been recorded, right? We're talking about something like $11 billion expected to be spent to day. And so that is going to require a lot of logistics and we have seen that have been talked of saying, Look, you really should make sure you get your shopping done as soon as possible because it's unlikely ups and FedEx and USPS even though they say they'll be okay. They're going to get really chance up with last week and you're going to not get your stuff if you're not careful. Let me shift gears here and ask you about the FCC chairman is sheep. I says he plans to step down the day President elect Joe Biden takes office. Hey, I'm guessing will be best remembered for killing off Obama era net neutrality rules. What happens to those rules next? Well, not a shock. It's likely that they're going to swing back and that what will happen is that whomever and up in charge of the FTC under Biden will just Reverse what I did, which, by the way was a reversal of what Obama did. So we're going to be kind of in this weird swing back and forth and back and forth, which really ticks off the tech industry, not to mention a lot of legislators. And at some point, Congress is gonna have to step in and write a lot. But until then, it looks like the FCC is just gonna kind of ping pong back and forth whenever there's a Republican or Democrat charge.

Black Friday 2020 Sales Reports

"In store sales on black friday where fifty two percent lower than a year ago. That should not surprise anyone online. Sales were up big also not surprise. This actually did surprise me a little bit. Though jason online sales on friday in the united states made it the second biggest day ever for online sales cyber monday last year is the biggest all time black friday this year second-placed that might get bumped down to third place after this year cyber monday. But what did you think of the reports of black friday. Yeah i mean. I think you hit on something there in to today cyber monday. I think you're right. No surprise almond spending on black. Friday grew twenty one point six percent. That was a new record. It was around nine billion dollars worth of purchases that were recorded in the forecast for today for cyber monday this year. It's slated it's it's it's slated to become the largest digital sales day ever spending is forecast to reach somewhere between ten point. Eight billion in twelve point seven billion dollars that would represent growth of fifteen to thirty five percent from last year. You no surprise really there. I think to me what really stood out and again not surprising but still stood out. Because it's just pretty darn impressive was shop by shop by his stock obviously a lot of our listeners. A lot of our members and subscribers are all very familiar with in. It's been a good year for shoplifting. Is stock up around one hundred and seventy five percent. The numbers that day chalked up for black friday really impressive two point. Four billion dollars in black friday sales that was about seventy five percent growth from last year so clearly the investments. They've been making in business all along the way or paying off. And i think the thing the thing there is because we can sit there and criticize shop five for example oh it's overvalued or you know it doesn't make a lot of sense because the business doesn't make that much money yet that that may be true but these are the type of these types of numbers that will i think afford some time i think as long as they continue to record these types of numbers the market is going to continue giving it Some wiggle room there. We've seen it with amazon. We've seen it certainly with wayfair. I think i don't think it'll be different but there were some interesting numbers. There within shop of is report that i think are just worth noting average black friday cart price. Globally was just under ninety one dollars. That was up eleven percent from a year ago so people spent a little bit more in need thing here in this mobile world. We always talk about how mobile is really leading. Four mobile sales on black friday this year. If you look at the breakdown between mobile sales and desktop it was sixty seven percent mobile versus thirty three percent desktop in last year that was sixty nine percent mobile and thirty one percent desktop so the differences is marginal but it seems worse shopping on desktop this year for obvious reasons and so the data i think but yeah it all goes back towards this digital economy that we're witnessing in it. It's it's seems like it has a lot of traction. I don't know that we're necessarily going to be going back anytime soon. I'm glad you mentioned shop five because we have talked a lot about the big retailers like walmart and target in particular the investments that they have made this year for curbside pickup for delivery all of that but worth as you said pointing out the investments shop by his made and this is a stock that i do not own i. I understand both sides of it. It is definitely on my watch. List having pulled the trigger yet. But but i understand the concerns. I understand the around valuation the lack of profitability. And maybe that's why we've seen the rise that we've seen for target and walmart this year because those are just fundamentally. I think a little easier for people to wrap their heads around. But as you said. I mean what what is the future going to be. Is it going. is it going to be well. Wants to all this is behind us. We're just to start going back to the mall now. I don't think so it's going to be more online shopping and to your point more mobile shopping. I think you are. I think you're right there. I just continued to be impressed with wayfair for example the mobile mobile numbers that they continue to record are really impressive. And that's that's furniture. Man i mean like people are shopping for furniture on their phones in regard to shop applied. I think when you when you look at the future. I don't think it's going to be one or the other. I think we've talked about this before really when we talk about target and walmart i mean it really is becoming about omni channel right. It's just meeting. The consumer wherever the consumer wants to be met in the more that companies the more that retailers are able to do this They're going to be able to take advantage of the digital economy. They're going to be able to take advantage of people wanting to actually physically go to stores In so i. I think the future is going to be a little bit of both but certainly shop. A fi is keying in on their specialty. In and i think more growth is going to be coming in. Obviously bad digital space shop is is absolutely one of the companies dictating the development of that space so even even next year. When i think it's probably safe to assume that that we get a little bit more back to normal in and the the the in person shopping experiences a little bit less risky. We'll see people wanting to get out. We'll see people wanting to go to stores and have fun with that experience But but that that. I don't think it's going to really Deter people from shopping online. I mean hopefully. I think ultimately what i'd love to see just this whole black friday cyber monday thing. I really like the fact that we're stretching and just this whole month so it's not really about fewer sales. It's just about timing right. We're just stretching over the course of a month as opposed to really isolating on on individual days. I liked to see that. Continue to wear these concepts. These retailers are not just leveraged to a couple of particular days toward the end of the year. Just real quick before we move onto our next story on that point. Are you seeing this in your own personal life. Because i have in. The last week noticed that the promotional emails i get from different retailers are basically saying. Hey our black. Friday sale is gonna last for the next ten days. It's like the subject line in the email is black friday sale. And then you look. It's like oh this is actually going through december ninth. Yeah i feel like. I've seen a lot of that just anecdotally. I do feel like. I've seen a lot more of that. I think that's that's the right thing to do again. It's just it's a bit of a different time but hopefully as we've seen throughout this whole year this year has been an accelerator for change and a lot of good ways. And maybe this'll be one more thing one more change that will witness over the course of the coming years in the i think ultimately they'll be a

Cyber Monday deals abound

"The clark deals crew has been working literally around the clock for a much longer period than historically. The clark deals team would work with most of the effort prior years being black friday week through cyber monday but this year not like prior years. The sales spread out the entire month of november bleeding into all the way into this. Friday is cyber monday for most retailers has become cyber week and it can be overwhelming. It's obviously overwhelming for our deals. Team can be overwhelming for you as a consumer with every E mail message. You get or text you might get from retailer you've done business with in the past or do currently screaming. How great their deals are so it really requires action not reaction on your part to plan out number one that you don't overspend and number two that you are getting real deals not non deals and so i know that if you are among the more than one third people somewhere roughly a little more than a third whom look at shopping during the month of december for christmas as more chore than joy. This is even harder for you to think through this way. But i'm more concerned about people who get really excited by deal deal and spend money. That is really more than your wallet is designed for and so that's why back to basics. I want you to think about coming up with a budget. Not too late even if you've already been clicking and buying black friday week and now in cyber week you're like oh look at this. Do you look at that one. Go ahead and assess what you've already spent and how that fits into what you really can't afford to spend through this. Christmas selling cycle second win. They're things you're interested in. Just take the time to write down the offers for example like Historically have been the top draws in the friday and now cyber week deals and they get really really confusing so no this the real deals come with. Tv's and various forms of electroncs that our current technology not state of the art. The very best doorbuster kind of deals are those that are off brands or More minor brands an example Sam's club has a hot item today where they're selling a seventy five inch. Tv four k whole bit from philips philips is not a premiere brand in the united states anymore and it's five hundred and ninety nine dollars. There was a cheaper roku. Tv seventy five inch with best. Buy for four nine thousand nine that when sold out five nine thousand nine for seventy five inch. tv really really great. But it's Yes you'd call that a second tier brand and then when you look at the first tier brands samsung. Lg sony the tv's. That are the best deals for black friday. Cyber monday in this week of cyber week our. Tv's that may be Last season's models or models that they had oversupply of or they made specifically as value additions for retailers. To sell this week and there are great. Great great deals especially when you step down to the second tier or third tier brands. Listen this when if you want a jain normal. Tv best buy has an eighty five inch imagine eighty five inch tv. A high sense. Four k nine hundred ninety nine dollars. I mean that's ridiculous and they have an l g eighty six inch for fourteen forty nine so there are a variety of really really great deals on. Tv's and for people looking at more reasonable sizes like looking from thirty two inch. Tv's that right now are seventy nine dollars and up Sixty five inch. Tv's cheap is two hundred fifty dollars and there are great. Great deals available and avoid with electronic spying state-of-the-art because today's state of the art is much more money than current technology and we'll be current six months from now or whatever at a fraction of the price that state of the art is right now

That's the tuesday after thanksgiving. That's that's the thing that actually has caught on judging by my email. Inbox the tuesday after thanksgiving Small business saturday Which is more of an american express situation. It's the last saturday in november. And yeah american. Express owns the trademark on that. But basically if you have an amex card they do like a little deal fauria if you use it in a small business I think it's like a decent like all right this certainly in altruistic..

I didn't realize that Speaking of buying things. Did you read the article about what. It's like to be a worker at Amazon. Yeah I've read a lot about what it's like to be a worker at Amazon. Oh my goodness there's this one lady they did a piece on some a Journalists that a piece on and last year Amazon wanted to move a million products during a fairly short period timer on Christmas Christmas that was their focus. So they've got these robots that Rome up and down their warehouses but then there's the human beings who actually have to take the product and and move it. I guess from one robot to another to get it out the door. You have to handle a product if you're in that particular position every eleven seven seconds. Can you imagine the wear and tear on this book. Is One woman. Her back went out and she and she can't work because of that within A few months or a year short period of time every eleven seconds. And not. Only that you're tracked so if you ain't hittin it every eleven seconds cons- to keep stuff moving so quickly because everybody wants everything overnight you are reprimanded and if you consistently can't hit it you have have to be let go well. I mean it's like there's no way I could do that job. It's like the old fashioned. Like factory floor is where you had to have a certain amount on a productivity exactly. I don't think that I could handle it every eleven seconds for eight hours a day. I mean I guess you would get breaks. You've got a lunch break and all of that and and and some people have said you know I've got you know insurance now. I've got dental now so there. There's an upside. I guess for demand that's pressure. It has got to be every day. I didn't know they had to move him that fast. I knew that because you know you've been hearing about and reading about What it's like to be an Amazon worker for a while now? I knew that it was just as bad as people were saying. Amazon created a TV commercial talking. About how awesome. It is to work there. I know I saw that to the amid that hit the screens. I was like cow's counter. Sell to the negative publicity.

Welcome to the BOB and Sheri Show uncleaner without people off Santa Claus and Jerry. I think everyone now broadcasting from the Bob and Sheri Studios was it's Bob and Sheri it's officially December so now we can have a steady diet of hallmark channel. Christmas movies without guilt or shame. My friends when did it become the hallmark season. I'm like they used to have like one or two movies out. I actually have the answer now. It's just like they have flooded the market. I actually have the answer to that Over the weekend. I of course had the hallmark channel on and the great thing about it is is you can only. Hey Hey a little bit of attention and not lose the threat you can come in and out of the room. And you're it's it's not Schindler's List author require would carry book now so the Homework Christmas channel thing actually began in two two thousand and one when. ABC kicked off a twenty five days of Christmas programming spree and hallmark homework channel. Watch that and was like that's a good the idea but it didn't turn into. The reality are known now until two thousand eleven. I remembered Disney. Doing and hallmark saw it and said that's it's a format and I know I learned a couple of other things I have. I also have I hunted down. I could share it with you. The complete list of all all harmonica hallmark channel. Christmas movies for Twenty Nine Joan teasers but I here's something I learned. They not only take just a couple of weeks to film these movies. Almost all of them were filmed in Canada because they can get snowy locations and there's cheaper and the the budgets are two few million dollars. That's it two million dollars is a lot of money except when you're making a movie here's another fun fact And someone did research on why you get addicted to these hallmark Christmas channel movies because there are people who are physically and mentally eh addicted to these movies. And here's what they said. Can I guess. Yeah it's a combination of nostalgia and escapism to a simpler time. You were problems could be solved. That's basically it. The the deal is there is absolutely no reality at any level in any aspect of these movies not in the plot not in the production not in the set design. There is zero reality the escape. It's a Christmas movie. It has to have a happy ending and it's sad beginning in bed all right and so you suspend disbelief because it's Christmas and it's familiar company and if there is a some sort of conflict it'll be resolved positively and so there's no tormenting yourself self at the end of it in an era you know. I bet one of the reasons they become so prolific is the era that we're living. Yeah because people are looking so much stress. Yeah well here's acrimony here's a fun thing first of all There's a convention now for people. Blue Love Hallmark Channel Christmas movies. They had their first one in New Jersey. There's a convention let comic con or The walking dead thing. The Hallmark Channel Christmas movie thing is part of why cable is still thank because even when people cord it turns out that they a delay cord cutting until after Christmas so that they can binge the hallmark Christmas channels. No kidding I read the thing that you were talking about last week the other day in the New York Times about half movies. That are not big. blockbusters are having a hard time getting made unless they go on net flicks. They don't under the specific with specific audience. that the romantic comedies. That you would see in theaters are are getting less and less produced because the DVD business has gone. Yeah and that's how those are profitable so I'm going to run you through some of the titles plots for this year's hallmark Christmas channel movie swimming to break here Max.

"Welcome to tech stuff. I'm your host Jonathan Strickland, an executive producer, and that love all things tech today thought change things up a bit and talk about the history and evolution of cyber Monday. So where did this come from? And are the deals on cyber Monday. Really great. And I guess the answer to that. Second question is essentially it depends. But first, let's talk about some history. So before there was cyber Monday. There was black Friday both in the sense that black Friday is a thing is older than cyber Monday. And also cyber Monday is the Monday that follows black Friday. So technically, it's true in two different senses. All right. So what does black Friday one of the United States? Black Friday is the Friday following thanksgiving. Thanksgiving in the United States falls on the fourth Thursday of November. At least it has ever since. Eighteen thirty nine when Franklin Delano Roosevelt moved the holiday up a week from the final Thursday of November. Now since November two thousand eighteen started on a Thursday November. I was Thursday that means that two thousand eighteen will see thanksgiving fall as early as it can which means November twenty second the latest. It can fall in the month is November twenty eighth. Anyway, black Friday is the day after thanksgiving in the United States. Now, there is an apocryphal story that says the origins of black Friday are deeply racist and tied to the United States history with slavery. According to that story slave traders would sell slaves at a discount on the day after thanksgiving to help plantation owners who are going to want to purchase more slaves to do work leading up to the winter. That's a horrible horrible thing. But the story isn't true at all. And honestly, I find it hard to believe that slave traders would respond to an increase in demand by lowering their prices, they already seen like terrible terrible human beings. I don't think of them as being particularly altruistic. However, we can put that whole explanation aside. Anyway, if anyone tells you black Friday is based in slavery that is not true. The term black Friday in relation to the day after thanksgiving did not appear in print until the nineteen fifties. As far as we can determine there was however an earlier version of black Friday, though, that was not the day after thanksgiving that black Friday wasn't associated with a holiday at all. But rather with a stock market crash that happened on Friday September twenty fourth eighteen sixty nine the cause of that crash was that there were two speculators named Jay Gould and James Fisk and together they were able to drive up. The gold prices way way up while they were trying to corner the market on gold on the New York gold exchange. They had even planted a story to convince US president Ulysses s grant to stop gold sales. They had this report that it was going to hurt farmers out west. Meanwhile, they bought up as much gold as they could. And that raised gold prices as a result. So they thought they were going to be rich. They're going to buy up the golden than they could sell it off at these elevated prices, however, president grant found out about it any ordered the release of millions of dollars of gold to be made available on the market and that caused prices to crash suddenly there was way more supply and this crash ended up affecting the stock market as well. However, this was a moment of acute pain. It was a sharp debt in the stock market, thus the name black Friday, but in the long term. Meant that the nation was actually able to avoid a more persistent depression. So it ended up turning out better than it. Otherwise would have the earliest known reference to the day after thanksgiving being black Friday dates to nineteen fifty one from periodical titled factory management and maintenance that it was a real page Turner..
