Hmmm… Cyber Monday has come and gone and I somehow managed to miss it. In case you’re wondering, Cyber Monday is (apparently) the online equivalent of Black Friday — the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. What better time to sit down at your computer and shop than your first day back at work after a long, leisurely weekend? It’ll be interesting to see if this ends up catching on. Somehow, I don’t think so. While traffic at major web-based retailers was up 35% yesterday as compared to a typical Monday, I just can’t imagine that a designated online shopping day could generate the same sort of hype as Black Friday no matter how great the deals.
