Black Friday ads

Want to check out what's going to be on sale the day after Thanksgiving? No need to wait, just go to BlackFriday. Laptops for $499.99! A two-gig jump drive for $19.99! Hurry -- supplies limited!!

Best Buy had their lawyers threaten a lawsuit to get their ad removed, but I suspect this wave is unstoppable -- there are several other such sites. And ultimately, Black Friday may recede in importance. With Wal-Mart beginning their price-cutting in October, it appears that just as the Christmas shopping season is starting earlier and earlier, so will the price-cutting season.

Someday the after-Christmas sales will start on December 1.
