What is Cyber Monday?

The term Cyber Monday refers to the Monday immediately following Black Friday; the first Monday after Thanksgiving Day. It is considered the ceremonial kick-off of the online holiday shopping season. Whereas Black Friday is associated with traditional brick-and-mortar stores, "Cyber Monday" symbolizes one of the busiest days of the year for online retailers although the busiest online shopping day of 2005 was actually December 12.

The idea was that consumers would return to their offices after the Black Friday weekend and then make online purchases – buying all of the stuff they didn't find in their local stores.

Cyber Monday has evolved into a significant marketing event, sponsored by the National Retail Federation's division, in which online retailers offer low prices and special "today only" promotions. Here are a few "current" examples: Continue reading

iTrain on Your IPod

One more, come on you can do it! The latest twist to the iPod is iTrain, which has already received a lot of press. Other than a really annoying website, the service appears to be a sound innovation. You download exercise workouts prepared by certified personal trainers, go to the gym (or wherever) then hit play. 

Sounds like a solid idea, but I wonder if charging for the service will last long. Others will likely provide the workouts for free and include a few content related ads. Personally, I don't think you can replace the value of a personal trainer with an MP3. But if it works for you that's all that matters. 

From a marketing standpoint there are hundreds of new ways to use portable MP3 players. It's not just music anymore. Are you using your iPod or similar device in an innovative way? If so, let us know.

Hat tip to The Final Sprint for alerting us to this story. Here's an excerpt from their post:

A new addition to the iPod craze has spawned – the iTrain, it allows users to download personalized workout information straight to their MP3 player. Workout choices include: iTrain, iClimb, iTread, iCycle, and iStrength, for other options visit their website. A yearly workout package runs for $49.99, a monthly for $9.99, or if you’d like, get a sampler for under $1.00 per workout.
