I couldn't resist the temptation for a new HDTV (non-3D) from Best Buy. I won't do the Black Friday thing at a retail store, but even over the weekend, Best Buy had some smoking deals. You went to Walmart on Black Friday? You're lucky you didn't get pepper sprayed :)

In term of revenue, yes TV are the biggest contributors for black Friday, however the hottest gadget was tablet. But I am also curious to know what % was 3D TV bacuase that the most attractive feature in TV as change from previous version nad this is first time that their price were in affordable range.

It looks like Apple still reigns supreme this holiday season. Next year, we will see how they fare without Mr. Jobs. I hope they can continue the tradition. We will all miss the great master.

I was amazed at how inexpensive TV's have become. And I was tempted to replace my old 1280X1024 LCD on my old desk computer with a 22" 1080P TV ($200!). But I resisted. I went into Walmart in the afternoon and found out that all of the deeply discounted items ended at 8am that morning. That was enough to turn me around and not buy anything... Buying online is more and more attractive.

I read this morning that this was the biggest Black Friday in history. Consumer Electronics also had the largest share gain of any product category, with new TV sets -- not tablets -- leading the way. I think HDTV has been around long enough that we are seeing a wave of replacements of older HDTV models, as well as an expansion of the number of HD sets per home, driven by lower prices and new features compared to a few years ago. I would be really curious to know what percentage of all those new TVs sold last weekend were 3D.

The thing about the Kindle is it is marketed using the "Razor Blade" strategy. Gillette and Schick give away the shavers and then make all of their money selling you blades and shaving cream. Same thing with Amazon, they will have an ongoing revenue stream selling content. I am sure they have figured out how much (avg.) they will actually make from each Kindle Fire that they sell at or below cost.

Should there be ANSI/IEEE or similar standard for all tablet to effectively collobrate with each other?

Blackberry playbook listed at $200 from SPrint with no commitment. The Playbook seems to do pretty will from the standpoint of feature comparison.
