Question of the Day: What did You buy Over the Holiday Weekend?

Cyber Monday

Black Friday and Cyber Monday – the two days where Americans start throwing exuberant amounts of money into holiday gifts and items they themselves have been craving over. There are cheap TVs, $15 toasters, and Blu-Ray discs for $3. It’s a crazy time.

So we want to know, did you pick up anything special while the sales were available? We know many folks were hoping to pick up an off contract Moto X today through Motorola’s Cyber Monday deal, but they have apparently put that on hold for the time being thanks to their site not being able to handle so much traffic.

Let’s hear all of your new goodies in the comments below!

  • TC Infantino

    I bought my parents a Nexus 7 from Google Play Store. I figured it was time to get them addicted to Android and all you can do with a nice tablet. This should lead to them finally getting a HD tv for their living room. Once I showed them how I was able to rent/buy a movie on my phone through Google Play, and then play it right away on my TV through ChromeCast, they were amazed and have kept expressing interest in getting an Android device soon.

  • anoninja118

  • jamaall

    Though it’s not great, I did get a galaxy tab 3 7.0. But what I consider great and what a normal person does is much different. Got it for only 109.99 new at staples with their $50 coupon before black Friday. It’s definitely worth that price.

  • MadnessRedefined

    Even though I don’t live in the USA (no black Friday for me) I finally got myself the nexus 7! I’m loving it, too bad we don’t have case in any store… I don’t suppose you could send me one of those you showed? I’d be very grateful 😉

    Nexus 7 on Wednesday for 150 at staples.
