Today is the biggest shopping day of the year here in the U.S., a time when we overstuffed Americans empty our wallets and burn calories engaged in competitive shopping. To that end, here are this week’s notable news items:
- Gartner offers a more sober look at m-commerce stats. I certainly recommend paying attention to your customer’s use, rather than some “global stats.” But this is a topic well worth watching as we move forward.
- Internet Retailer suggest Black Friday comes early for e-commerce. Although this is from last month, the point holds: e-commerce sales don’t happen on any one day (not just Black Friday or Cyber Monday). Take advantage.
- Dyn looks at how website uptime affects Black Friday revenue.

Happy Black Friday, Big Thinkers. Have a great weekend.
