A La Carte (11/30)

Cyber Monday Today is “Cyber Monday,” the day that online retailers come up with deals to try to rival what brick-and-mortar retailers offer on Black Friday. Here are a few deals I noted this morning:

The big news at Amazon today is a great deal on the 8 GB iPod Touch. Today only it’s on sale for the lowest price you’re likely to see. Meanwhile they’ve got tons of other deals on a wide variety of products.

MLB.com is offering 20% off your entire order for today.

Christian Book Distributors has a long list of Christmas-themed products on sale.
Black Friday
Speaking of Black Friday, check out this photo essay of the pandemonium from last Friday. This reminds me why I prefer to shop online.
Eid al-Adha and the Hajj
And speaking of photo essays, The Big Picture offers one of this year’s Hajj and observance of Eid al-Adha.
Uncle Jay Explains
A little while ago a reader alerted me to Uncle Jay Explains. It’s since become one of my favorite Monday traditions.
